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.


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.

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!
