Family Free Course!
We are very excited to be able to offer a free course to run in school starting next Tuesday 15th October 2.30-4.30pm (see flyer attached). The course is designed to deliver family learning with a focus on disability awareness; this is something we are passionate about promoting at Coxhoe Primary. The course runs for 10 weeks; the first hour is with the tutor and parents and the second hour gives the opportunity for you to work with your children; a great time to bond and have some quality time together. Your children have had an assembly today and have been really keen to get involved and recruit their parents so ask them all about it! To book your place either print off the form and bring to reception or forms are available in reception.
The application process for secondary Admissions 2020 begins on Thursday 12th September. Please go to www.durham.gov.uk/schooladmissions for guidance.
If you have or know of a child who will turn 5 between 1st September 2020 and 31st August 2021 please go to www.durham.gov.uk/schooladmissions for guidance.
Believe and Achieve
Welcome to Coxhoe Primary School - where we aim to offer our children engaging and enriching opportunities to allow them to develop the knowledge, skills and resilience they need to achieve in our ever changing and culturally diverse world.
As the Head Teacher and on behalf of our governors, our staff and most importantly, our children, I am very proud to welcome you to Coxhoe Primary School. We are a growing school family with a shared drive and determination to ensure all of our children reach their full potential across all aspects of our broad, balanced and bespoke Coxhoe curriculum. Staff and governors believe that it is a privilege to guide your children through their Primary School journey and are passionate about their important role.
Our school community is based upon positive relationships that are underpinned by mutual respect. Smiles and laughter are a key part of each and every day: happy children make fantastic learners. We have high expectations in all aspects of school life; visitors often comment on the high standards of behavior, the warm welcome they receive and the enjoyment in school life.
The community supporting Coxhoe Primary School is one of its many strengths and we value it hugely. The support we have from parents is second to none and we encourage honest and open dialogue; if you have queries or concerns about any aspects of school life, please make sure that you come and talk to us. Likewise – when you are particularly happy with something at school – it’s also lovely to hear about that too! Our children are at the heart of everything we do and every decision made.
As a parent of two teenage daughters, I am well aware of the challenges that today’s society places on our children. In this climate, it is even more important to help our children become resilient and prepared for those challenges – through their experiences here in our school family. We will therefore endeavour to ensure that your children leave Coxhoe Primary School having had fun, done their best and feeling proud of their achievements; this will allow them to be ready to face the next challenges, not only in their education, but also in their life.
At Coxhoe Primary School we aim to:
- create a school ethos that is based firmly on mutual respect, trust and tolerance
- provide enriching and enjoyable opportunities for all children to reach their potential and develop key life skills within a supportive, nurturing and welcoming environment

- enable our children to have the confidence to be inquisitive young people and ignite a lifelong love of learning
- celebrate children’s achievements in all aspects of their lives

- celebrate diversity in all aspects of life, promoting inclusivity in all that we do
- encourage caring and thoughtful attitudes

- empower pupils to make informed decisions and choices
- provide a broad range of opportunities to promote a healthy lifestyle that considers and supports physical and mental well being
