Cosby Primary School is situated in pleasant, rural surroundings on the outskirts of the village of Cosby and currently caters for two hundred and thirty-five children, mainly from the village.
The oldest part of the building, the original junior school in the village, is more than one hundred years old and has been added to over the decades with the most recent addition fifteen years ago, which replaced the annexe at the other end of the village and brought us all together on one site.
In addition to our ten classrooms and Preschool, the school has a central library and we are fortunate to have a hall with a stage and an up to date computer suite. There are three playgrounds, two playing fields and extensive school grounds, which include an environmental area.
The staff aim to provide a secure and settled environment, building on our strengths and successes, whilst still working towards continuous improvement by implementing new initiatives and developments that will further enhance children’s learning. We work together to provide a broad and creative curriculum that is tailored to meet the needs of each individual child, placing a strong emphasis on the teaching of the basic skills of English and Maths to ensure that each child does their best and fulfils their potential in all areas. We celebrate success at every opportunity and there are many occasions when children can earn certificates and other rewards for their achievements. These are all recognised every week in our Friday celebration assemblies.
It is important that children at Cosby have a voice and take on additional responsibilities. We have an active and successful School Council as well as House Captains, Sports Captains, Outdoor Ambassadors, Play Leaders and Reading Champions. They work hard through the year to find out children’s opinions as well as organising and supporting many of our school activities.
We have a committed, hardworking governing body who take their role in supporting and challenging the school to achieve the best possible standards very seriously. They meet regularly as a full Governing Body, as well as in committees. They regularly visit the school to view its work and to meet with staff and children.
We recognise the valuable role that parents have to play and encourage parents to take advantage of the many opportunities to share in their child’s education, recognising that children achieve well when a strong partnership between home and school is in place.
We have an active Friends of Cosby School association which meets regularly to organise social and fundraising events for children and their families. The funds they raise are greatly appreciated as they further enhance our facilities.
We are proud of all that our school has to offer and visitors are always welcome!
