Hi there everybody,
We hope that you are all well and looking forward to September. We are busy planning for our new 'normal' and a newsletter will be coming out in the next couple of days.
Our school year 2019-2020 has seen us face unprecedented times, bringing us many challenges. However, our Coxhoe family has not just risen to those challenges – they have smashed them. We are immensely proud of everyone in our family for showing determination and resilience, care and compassion, diligence and conscientiousness….. but most of all… sticking together whilst staying apart!
I wanted to end our year with smiles on the faces of our whole school family so today we bring you a disco diva moment you will not forget in a hurry. Look out of lots of faces that you will recognise and a couple of new ones too!
Enjoy, take care and stay safe, Mrs Bartle and your #CoxhoeRocks Team
Reception Admissions - September 2020
We can't wait to meet all of our new Reception children in September however due to Covid-19 and the current challenges in school, we are not able to confirm our induction arrangements for our new starters. We will be in touch with families once we receive guidance from the Government regarding the re-opening of schools. At the moment there is little indication as to when this might happen. Once we have this information, we will be in touch with all of our new families of children who have been given a place at our school for September.
A message for you all...
A huge thank you to S Club 7 for creating a piece of music that keeps our spirits high and reminds us that we are all there for each other.
Remember - Reach for the Stars!
Your message back to us...
Thank you so much Coxhoe family - this put huge smiles on all of our faces.
Coxhoe Home Learning Support UPDATED 20/4/20
In these extremely challenging circumstances, we are aware that our families are working together to ensure that our children continue to consolidate their learning at home. Thank you!
Children were provided with a tailored home learning pack full of activities to get them all started and logins for key online resources. Included in this, was the curriculum for week 1 - a grid full of challenges to support learning across a broad range of subjects. This was updated before the Easter Holidays followed by some fun family Easter activities over the holidays.
We are really missing being together as a school family but we are very proud of the way that we are staying close while we are apart. Keep using Twitter and our shared mailboxes to stay in touch. Staff are delighted to see the wide variety of learning that is happening in such creative ways. We are also here to help with your queries and concerns using the shared mailboxes or you can telephone the school office between 8.00am – 4.00pm.
The new home learning grids are ready and waiting for you all on the class pages, including spellings and your word of the week. They include activities from across the curriculum. Please make sure that children complete all of the activities by the end of the week.
In addition to this individualised support for each class, we have created a new section - our home learning hub - to provide top tips for parents, some online links and general ideas for support. You can find it in the dropdown: Our Classes and School Life. If you have found anything that has been really helpful at home, please free free to share it with us through the email so that we can share it with all of our school family.
Class teachers will be continuing their phone calls throughout this week – checking in to see how everyone is getting on. We are keen to know what support has been helpful and of any further support needed. Look out for the additional home learning book/activities being delivered later this week too.
We all know that continued learning is important for all of our children whilst they are currently unable to attend school. It is a very uncertain time for us all and as adults, we feel worried and concerned about the challenges that we are facing. Our children will undoubtedly also have some worries too - their worlds have been turned upside down. However, we have provided lots of ideas and information about how to support mental health and wellbeing as well as home learning.
We are looking forward to hearing all about your adventures learning in many different ways when they return to school; perhaps pop some pictures in their home learning book or share them with us using the dedicated mailboxes for home learning or tagging us in a tweet.
Please refer back to the top tips on our home learning hub and do not be too hard on yourselves. Together - we’ve got this!
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 and share our Vision Statement including our values, ethos and curriculum intent.
Believe & Achieve is our school motto.
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.
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 behaviour, 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.
