Welcome and Prospectus

Welcome to Cotgrave Church of England Primary School.


Welcome to Cotgrave Church of England Primary School’s website. Our aim is to give visitors to this site a real sense of our school. New parents/carers are always welcome to visit us: to see our excellent facilities and get a real sense of our warm family learning environment.


We work hard to ensure that all of our children are cherished and accepted in a school family that encourages and celebrates diversity. We work in partnership with parents and the wider community to offer many opportunities for the development of the whole child, developing personally and academically, encouraging a lifestyle based on Christian values and teaching.


We offer a blend of the traditional and the contemporary: a safe, secure and well-resourced environment which fosters respect for self, other children and adults, animals and the environment. In a creative and joyous learning atmosphere children are able to experience enjoyment of school and celebrate the attainment of their full and highest capability.


Our school works hard to preserve its cultural roots, teaching children to know their own heritage, but at the same time learning to understand and respect the different backgrounds of others. As a church school we seek to achieve our aims within the context of the Christian faith, keeping true to the school’s Christian foundation and purpose. However, we warmly welcome children of families from all backgrounds whose parents/carers will support the education of their children in a school with clear values, high staffing ratios, a family-centred approach, modern facilities and high standards.

Start children off on the way they should go, and

even when they are old they will not turn from it.

(Proverbs 22:6)
