Remembrance service

On Friday 10th November we held a Remembrance service at the school. Some of the children shared poems they had written and together we sang songs of remembrance. Members of staff gave readings and Reverend Nick led us in a reflection before Mrs Williams finished the service with a prayer.

Each child made a poppy, which we hung in our remembrance tree in the garden and the children carried candles to the reading area where we created a cross.

Thank you to James Deacon for providing the sound system and thank you to the PTA for providing hot chocolate and sparklers afterwards. It was great to see so many people there!

Creation Week

We started Creation Week this morning with a fantastic Assembly, taken by Mrs Williams and Miss Dickson. The whole school recreated the story of Creation. Several of our younger children played the part of God and Adam and Eve.

On Monday afternoon, the children created a whole school performance piece inspired by the Creation Story with Mrs Johnson, in Music. You can listen to their final performance. What a fantastic first day!  

Values

Welcome to our school

Welcome to Cockernhoe Endowed C of E School. I am proud to be leading such a happy and successful school.

The school was founded in 1881 to provide education “according to the principles and practices of the Church of England”, and is a Voluntary Aided school operating in partnership with the Local Education Authority.

As Cockernhoe is a village school, it caters for the children of all denominations from the age of 4 to 11. Although primarily for children of the village and surrounding hamlets, children from other areas are most welcome, providing there are places.

We value every child as an individual, aiming to provide them with the very best care and education, thus enabling them to reach their full potential.

We want every child to leave Cockernhoe happy, confident, independent and resilient, equipped with the life skills necessary for the 21st Century.

We offer a wide curriculum where academic excellence and creativity are highly valued and participation in sporting and music activities is encouraged.

Quality support staff assist a team of dedicated and enthusiastic teachers in providing children with challenging and enjoyable learning experiences. Children are well motivated, confident, polite and well behaved.

Visits to the school are welcome.

Suppose everybody cared enough, everybody shared enough, wouldn't everybody have enough? There is enough in the world for everyone's need, but not for everyone's greed.
