North Cockerington Church of England Primary School promotes the social, emotional and intellectual development of each child in a happy, caring and stimulating environment, rooted in Christian values. At the heart of our school is the belief that all children are loved by God, are individually unique and that the school has a mission to help each pupil to fulfil their potential in all aspects of their personhood. We encourage the love of neighbour, the challenge and gift of service, and the experience of trust and forgiveness.
We trust that , in partnership with parents, we will have laid the foundation for our children to be happy, confident and independent. It is our hope that all our pupils become flourishing members of society, capable of applying and adapting themselves to the demands of living and working in an ever-changing world.
