Welcome to Cotwall End Primary School

Message from Mrs C Williams, Headteacher

Welcome to Cotwall End Primary School.  I am privileged to be part of this amazing school. Life is very active here and we have a lot to be proud of!

 

As soon as you walk through the door you know you are in no ordinary school. Instantly, the warmth, vibrancy and energy of the school is different. As you walk round the classrooms witnessing the energy and enthusiasm of the teachers and the children enjoying their learning, you can see first-hand why extraordinary things happen here. 

We adopt a personalised approach to teaching. Every child is valued as an individual and nurtured to achieve their true potential through inspirational teaching and outstanding pastoral care in a safe, calm environment. Crucially, success is measured in terms of personal improvement, development and achieving their own tailored goals, not solely against the results of their peers.  We strive to fulfil not just their academic potential but their personal, social, moral and creative development through an exciting, stimulating environment.

Cotwall End is well placed to provide an environment where leaders nurture, support, coach and empower all staff to be outstanding. We have developed highly skilled and reflective teachers, teaching assistants and other support staff, who are dedicated and committed to ensuring pupils receive the highest quality and standards of educational experience.

I hope, like me, you feel strongly that we will achieve our educational aims for our children in partnership. I know that children learn best in an ethos of praise, encouragement and challenge.

Thank you for visiting our website. Here you will find the essential information you need and discover what makes Cotwall End a great place to learn. Should you wish to visit the school, or find out more, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Thank you

Mrs Claire Williams

Headteacher

What have we been up to in school this week?

Cotwall End Primary School has a well deserved reputation of being a caring school.  We will do our best to make sure that any child's time here is as happy and successful as possible.  We value parents' support and trust that with their assistance we can create a rich learning environment which will enable our pupils to flourish and grow from strength to strength.

The school was established as an Infant and Junior School in 1962. In 1981, it was decided to amalgamate the two schools and Cotwall End Primary School now caters for children from 3 to 11 years.

An emphasis is placed on the National Curriculum Core Subjects of English, Mathematics, Science and ICT in order to provide our children with the building blocks for life, but we also work hard to provide a strong emphasis on other subjects, especially sports and the arts, to address the needs and interests of the whole child.

The Governors, Headteacher and staff are dedicated to providing the children at this school with a high quality of education delivered in a happy, caring environment.  We believe this will also help to develop the children's own individual personalities.

We run our own Breakfast club from 7.30am every day as well as a very successful After School Club on the school site until 6.00pm each evening during term time only.

If you would like a school tour please contact the school office on 01384 818730 to arrange an appointment.

As Partners in Progress with children, parents and the community, we want our school to be a place where:

  • High standards are achieved

  • Success is recognised and celebrated

  • We strive for excellence in all areas

  • Everyone enjoys learning

  • Staff and children care for and respect each other

  • Everyone is valued, listened to and feels a sense of belonging

In order to achieve our vision for Cotwall End Primary School, we will aim to:

  • Meet the learning needs of all children by providing an appropriate, varied and exciting curriculum

  • Help children become responsible for their own learning

  • Be emotionally intelligent in our approach to people

  • Provide for children's social and emotional needs

  • Create a superb initial impression and welcoming atmosphere

  • Play an active part in our local community

 

 Please give your views on our school via Parent View on the Ofsted site.

​Cotwall End Primary School will recognise its legal duty under s.175/157 Education Act 2002 to work with other agencies in safeguarding children and protecting them from “significant harm” as laid out in our Child Protection Policy.

Please see Mrs Claire Williams Headteacher, Mrs Sue Sullivan, Deputy Headteacher or Mrs Gemma Wilkes, Assistant Headteacher if you have any concerns.
