A Melrose Learning Trust School

Welcome to the St. Mary’s Cockerton Primary School website.

Our school is a place where all are welcomed and invited to build a community where God’s love is shared to enable positive engagement, action and education; allowing children, staff and pupils to be inspired to raise their eyes, open their minds and explore the world God created. Participating in God’s mission of love to both the local community and the wider world, we live fully as global neighbours. This work has been externally recognised and led us to be awarded the Bronze Global Neighbours Award by Christian Aid.

We are located on the west side of Darlington in the Cockerton Village area. We are a single form entry school and accommodate around 210 children in school. We have a wide catchment and we take children from all around the surrounding area and we feed into all the local secondary schools.

If you would like to visit us or would like more information about the school, please get in touch with the school office.

A very unexpected visitor joined us for House Team Assembly this morning - meet Nigel, the cute little newt that Mrs Mason found in the playground as the children were arriving!
After saying hello to everyone, Mrs Mason put Nigel near our pond so hopefully he gets back to his habitat safely.

As Lent begins, Father Damon helped us think about Lent as a time to reflect on who we are. 
We learned that we are made of calcium, carbon and oxygen - the same as the dust that formed Adam and Eve in the Book of Genesis. 
We received the sign of the cross, made from ashes and dust, as a symbol of Gods forgiveness.
Hopefully these crosses on hands or foreheads were still visible as the children left school!
