What the school offers its staff

Coddington is a Church of England primary and nursery school located close to the market town of Newark.

At Coddington CofE Primary we put children at the heart of everything we do. We provide the children with a creative curriculum that is both exciting and inspiring. Learning is brought to life by carefully planned opportunities that enthuse, engage and motivate our children to want to find out more.

There are currently 395 children on roll, divided into twelve classes. Additionally our Early Years provision provides a bespoke learning space for the youngest children to flourish. There is a PAN of 60. The majority of children continue their education at secondary schools in Newark. The school was judged ‘Good’ by Ofsted in January 2019 and the report highlights that “pupils are extremely proud of their school, and their attitudes towards learning are positive. They are polite and courteous and work well with one another.”

The school’s most recent Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS) recognised provision as good. Our nursery provision provides a warm and nurturing space, with significant investment to provide high quality first steps at the beginning of each child’s education. This is a highly valued and developing part of the school.

Our whole approach at Coddington CofE Primary is driven by 7 Christian rainbow values. • Respect • Happiness • Friendship • Honesty • Co-operation • Responsibility • Love
