Welcome to Coxhoe Primary School
At Coxhoe Primary School we believe in the value of every child and adult who enters our doors. By feeling valued and respected, as an individual, we seek to encourage each person to show value and respect towards one another, joining together to build a happy, forward thinking community. We strive to make our school a place where all are encouraged to reach for and achieve their potential, leaving them equipped and empowered for the next stage of their learning journey.
Our school aims to consider the uniqueness and individual needs of its pupils by delivering a broad, balanced differentiated and relevant curriculum.
Each child is considered as a whole person developing skills, concepts and attitudes necessary for the opportunities and experiences of the future. We aim to prepare children to reach their full potential as responsible citizens.
Our school aspires to value everyone associated with it, irrespective of age, position, race, gender, background or ability. We endeavour to motivate, support and inspire personal, spiritual, emotional and educational growth in a safe and secure environment.
We aim to unite, parents, pupils, governors, staff, L.E.A. and the local community, through agreed school policies, which aim to deliver a quality educational service. This partnership has helped us to develop together the following aims for all our pupils:
The curriculum will encourage all pupils to understand, be interested in and show respect to others, whilst also developing their own self esteem.
The curriculum will enable pupils to become literate and numerate, having confidence when communicating, working with and responding to others.
The curriculum will enable pupils to develop analytical problem solving skills.
The curriculum will develop independence in our pupils enabling them to make healthy, safe life choices for themselves and others.
COXHOE PRIMARY CURRICULUM
Thank you to the parents and carers who attended our meeting to introduce the changes to the School Curriculum. These have been made due to the introduction of a new National Curriculum from September 1st 2014. Please find below the information shared during the meeting in the form of a Powerpoint presentation reflecting all subjects taught in the school.
We teach the School Curriculum over a 2 year cycle which ensures that all pupils will cover all aspects of the National Curriculum. For details of individual class Long Term Plans during Cycle A (2014-15) and Cycle B (2015-16) please go to the Key Policies section within the virtual office.
Coxhoe Win the Premiership
Cross Country team set the pace!
The Cross Country teams followed up their October success in the area finals, with an outstanding performance at the County Finals held at Peterlee. In blustery conditions the year 3/4 girls team finished 6th and the year 5/6 boys team finished 8th. This is a fantastic achievement considering there are 230 primary schools in the county. A special mention must also go to Sinead Mckay and Max Brandon who finished 5th and 11th respectively. Credit goes to every member of the team this year and if you are interested in taking up running, the running club will be open to children in year 1 and 2 this summer.

PUTTING THE BRAKES ON CYCLE CRIME!
OPERATION SPOKE is a campaign led by Durham Constabulary, working in partnership with Durham County Council, Darlington Borough Council, Local Motion and the Safe Durham Partnership to reduce cycle crime in County Durham and Darlington.
The scheme offers security marking and registration to the owners of every cycle in County Durham and Darlington.
Each cycle is marked with a unique number and the details of the cycle and owner will then be recorded on IMMOBILISE, which is a secure National Property Database. A sticker is attached to deter thieves, and upon registration, parents have access to the IMMOBILISE online account, where they can add other items of property to your records.
Once a bike is security marked and registered on IMMOBILISE, it will also help police identify who property belongs to and help them return the property to the rightful owner in the event that it was ever stolen.
This is free of charge and our Mini Police were right on hand to ensure that the operation ran smoothly.
If have other cycles that you want marking and registering you can take them to any Cycle Retailer in County Durham and Darlington and they will do this for you.
SCHOOL HOLIDAY DATES can be found in the Recent Letters section of the website. Please check carefully when booking your holiday. Holidays taken during term time are very disruptive for children and research has shown that children with poor attendance tend to achieve less in both primary and secondary school.
Holidays during term time will only be authorised by the Head Teacher in exceptional circumstance.
