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:


Curriculum Aims

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.


Please see class pages for a long term overview. Their 'What we've been up to' pages also provide a flavour of the breadth of curriculum offered. 

Latest News: 

Netball Champions

The Netball team were crowned league champions this week! After going through all of their matches undefeated, they managed to secure a 2-1 win in the final. The team improved with each game and thoroughly deserved their success. 

Year 2 - Year 6 Anti- Bullying Theatre Performance

Firehorse Theatre came and performed their fabulous play The B Word. In the play new girl Danni was bullied and the audience was able to see the devastating effect this had on her. The audience were asked to work with Danni to help her stop her bullies.

No one should be bullied. If you are bullied or see someone else being bullied please tell a trusted adult so it can be stopped. 

Tell it, share it, stop it! 


Remembrance at Coxhoe

Coxhoe Primary Remembrance Day was on Thursday 8th November. The children took part in activities linked to various topics about soldiers. We had an assembly to share what we had learned and show what we had made. We all joined in the 2 minute silence at 11am to remember those who have fought for us. 

Halloween Disco

We are very proud to announce that we raised £900 for MacMillan Cancer support on Friday with a fantastic team effort. Staff children and family members were all star bakers and the selection on offer was mouthwatering.
The staff bake off was most impressive and the judges found it very difficult to select a winner - the four top bakes were almond cupcakes, white chocolate and raspberry brownies, ginger cake and finally 'not just any chocolate cake'!
The children all enjoyed their treats in the morning and we were delighted that so many family members joined us in the afternoon - the hall was buzzing! The warm and friendly atmosphere, the busy sales and tremendous total just go to show what a fabulous school family we are! Many thanks to all involved and a special thank you to PTA volunteers who were able to help on stalls throughout the day.
The raffle was drawn at the end of the event and the prizes can be collected on Monday.  Winning numbers will be posted in the community notice board and on the App on Monday. 

Football League

The SSP Football League concluded on Thursday evening and the final places were decided. Improving with every game, the A team managed 3rd place and the B team came 5th. Both teams will be hoping to carry on their form when both teams take part in the Football Cup next half-term. Well played!

Cross Country Success

A huge well done to all the teams who took part in the Cross country Festival at Ferryhill. There were some outstanding individual and team performances, which helped Coxhoe achieve third place overall. The Year 5/6 Girls' team earned a Bronze medal and the Year 5/6 Boys carried on their league form to take Gold. A special mention to Charlie, Sinead, Henry and Max for their podium finishes, who along with the Boys team will represent Sedgefield at the County Finals in March. Top job everyone!

Adam Bushnell

The amazing author and storyteller Adam Bushnell visited our school on Monday 17th September. He worked with all of our children across the school in order to inspire them to write about their topics this term. Topics included The Vikings, Stone Age, Magic, Explorers and Superheroes. The children had a great day exploring these topics with Adam as you can see from our photographs!

We are so proud of Sophie Evans this week! She was invited to a presentation in Durham to celebrate winning an OASES competition to design a logo for their campaign to reduce our carbon footprint in schools. She was presented with her design and prize by the mayor of Durham and as you can see she had lots of fun!
