w/c Monday 7 September 2015 – Week 1


Students’ success at school is only possible with the full support and encouragement of parents, and as such we aim to work in close partnership with all parents and carers.

Care, Guidance and Support were all judged in 2012 by OfSTED to be Good in all areas at Cockermouth School and we are committed to maintaining the highest standards of Pastoral Care.  This starts with the transition from primary school where we ensure that a carefully planned induction takes place.

Student planners, the website and the newsletter are important channels of communication between home and school.  All students also have access to MOODLE, our virtual learning environment.

Parents receive regular Progress Reports, and Parents’ Evenings and Preferences Days provide opportunities to meet staff to discuss their child’s progress.

A wealth of extra curricular activities are available to students – please click on the Community tab on the left, and then Extended Schools to see a list of these.


Our most recent OfSTED inspection was May 2012 – the report is attached.  Please also read the attached letter to parents from Mr Walker, a sample of quotes from the Report and a letter to students from the Lead Inspector. Please contact Reception if you would like a hard copy of these documents.
