Welcome to St. Mary's Cockerton Primary School

Welcome to the St. Mary’s Cockerton Primary School website. This website is to share the learning of the children under our care. St. Mary’s Cockerton is a place of learning where we aim to inspire and challenge our pupils academically; enrich their faith through worship and celebration; and produce well rounded children that parents and teachers are proud of.

St. Mary’s Cockerton School became a part of the Dove Academy Trust in October 2016, along with High Coniscliffe School. Together, we share one Headteacher and ethos.

We are located on the west side of Darlington in the Cockerton Village area. We are a single form entry school and accommodate around 200 children in school. As a faith 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.

We love our school and are very proud of the work and achievements of the children in our care. We work hard academically and achieve and develop out of the classroom.

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

We are a Marvellous Me school! Our school uses Marvellous Me to communicate with parents, carers and grown ups at home all about the Marvellous things which your children do in class: whether it's good work, excellent behaviour, superb learning behaviours or any other positive thing! We think that our children are marvellous and we'd like to you know that! Marvellous Me is an app which you can download on your smartphone or tablet and you'll get a notification every time a grown up in school spots your child being Marvellous! If your child does not have an invite code, just speak to the School Office and we'll get you signed up!
