Are you in the process of looking for the right primary school for your reception-aged child?

We are open for tours, please contact the office. For further information, see our admissions page.

Our After School Club runs everyday from 3.15pm until 6pm.

The club is supervised by members of staff from our school. The children receive healthy snacks and drinks and are involved in a range of exciting activities.

Pupils throughout the school have consistently good attitudes to learning and they work hard. They respect their teachers highly and say that learning is exciting.

Staff have responded positively to the much higher expectations and were quick to tell the inspector about their pride in working at Cogenhoe and about the successes they are achieving together.

Pupils wear their uniform with pride and are very supportive of each other.

Book your child's place for Forest School Easter Camp on 28th March via School Money!

Project Conquer

Can you conquer Cogenhoe?

In the 2019-2020 academic year, teachers, parents, Governors and pupils at Cogenhoe Primary all worked together to design and develop 100 non-academic skills, attributes and activities that all pupils will achieve by the time they leave in Year 6. Each year group will have 15 steps to achieve and these will be interwoven and celebrated alongside our whole school curriculum.

We understand that our pupils sometimes lack confidence, resilience  and the understanding of certain skills which really will help to prepare them for the wider world. Our steps in ecah year group will help and give children the opportunity to work independently and in partnership with their parents and teachers to become well-rounded, informed and confident citizens, ready to contribute positively to the world around them.

Some of the steps are purely and simply just for fun! They are things that we are all guilty of taking for granted at times and we must still place importance on them and acknowledge them in this world and in our lives.

All of our pupils will be able to clearly demonstrate each step at least three times before a skill can be completed. All pupils will be presented with a special book which they will use to record all of their notes, pictures, photos, drawings and comments in.
