Welcome to our school

Dear Parents and Carers,

Welcome to Cooks Spinney Primary Academy and Nursery.

Cooks Spinney Primary School and Nursery (Academy) was formed on 1st December 2013 for children aged 3 to 11. We are part of the Burnt Mill Academy Trust which is a small co-operative trust of 7 schools - Cooks Spinney, Freshwaters Primary Academy, Roydon Primary, Little Parndon Primary, Magna Carta Primary, Forest Hall School and Burnt Mill Secondary Academy.

Cooks Spinney Primary Academy and Nursery is a safe, happy and caring school where everyone is accepted and treated with respect. We have an effective leadership team with an Assistant Head of School in each of our key stages which enables us to drive standards in each of the key areas. Our children are encouraged to develop enquiring minds that will give them an important introduction to a lifetime of learning. We value home school partnerships and share the responsibility with you for educating your child, academically, socially and morally.  We believe that it is essential for all children to acquire the basic social, literacy and numeracy skills to become confident and effective learners. We also share your expectation that your child will achieve their very best in every aspect of their learning during their time at Cooks Spinney Primary Academy and Nursery.

Cooks Spinney Primary Academy and Nursery is a place where children believe in their future and that hard work and determination will help us to achieve our goals. Our main corridor is a collection of Aspirational Apples from each of our children. Every child has thought about what they would like to do when they grow up and has then considered what they need to do to achieve that. We are very proud of our ambitions and are happy to share them with you.

We have a thriving wildlife area and our own pond which is already home to many creatures and gives us plenty of learning opportunities. We like to get outdoors as much as possible and try to teach activities from across the curriculum in one of our outdoor areas.  As part of our Enriched Curriculum, we use Wow Days to inspire pupils at the beginning of new topics which include educational trips and experts coming into school to share information with us.

Swimming is an important part of our school curriculum. Once in KS2, all children are given the opportunity to attend Swimming Lessons as part of their school day. We use the swimming facilities at Burnt Mill Academy. 

We communicate to Parents and Carers through our weekly newsletter, website and Twitter page. Follow us on Twitter @CooksSpinney.

We look forward to working with you.

Mr S Pope

Executive Head Teacher
