Cottingham CE Primary is a friendly and well-respected primary school that is always striving to move forward. Inspired by our strong moral values, children are given every opportunity to achieve their potential, and feel proud of themselves in a caring Christian environment. We recognise the importance of statutory testing and academic achievement, and our vision is to offer outstanding education and care, through quality and engaging teaching and learning. However, we are proud to offer a range of extracurricular activities, to supplement children’s learning, and support their physical, mental, and emotional growth, so learning is immersive and all experiences ‘come alive’ in a range of contexts.

Our success is powered by our fantastic school community. We are committed to work collaboratively to establish a safe, happy, and exciting learning environment, so all children leave school as inquisitive learners with happy positive memories, ready for the journey ahead.

Cottingham Primary is a proud member of the Peterborough Diocese Education Trust and has been since 2016. We are a family of 33 schools across the Peterborough Diocese, and these strong links make special contribution to our children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural development and learning. PDET is responsible for employing all staff and managing finances and other central services for the academies within the Trust.
