Achieve Believe Enjoy
Welcome to Coquet Park First School
Dear Parents, Carers and visitors to our school,
Coquet Park First School is a happy, one form entry coastal school that welcomes children from 3 to 9 years old.
We aim to promote a safe and secure environment in which children learn to be members of a caring community. We believe that children are able to achieve their full potential in a happy and supportive environment, whilst enjoying their time in school.
I am privileged to work with enthusiastic, caring and hard working pupils supported by a dedicated, talented staff and a skilled Governing Body. As a whole school community, we work closely in partnership with parents and other family members to make every day a valuable and memorable learning experience for all pupils. Through this, we aim to encourage every child to become confident, caring individuals with a love of learning and lifelong skills to flourish in future years.
Myself and the senior leadership team work closely together to ensure that high standards in teaching, learning and communication are constantly maintained. We strive to address any issues swiftly and effectively whilst working on future key initiatives that move us forward.
We warmly welcome visits from new parents. Please contact the School Office to arrange an appointment. Please do not hesitate to contact the school if you have any queries.

Stained Glass Window Unveiling
It is with great pleasure that we can unveil our new stained glass window which is located between the Y3 and Y4 classrooms.
We proudly welcomed Councillor Pat Oliver to unveil our fabulous stained glass window which was generously made and donated by The GlassHouse.
Inspired by ideas from the children, it is to recognise the efforts of all key workers and the school community during the pandemic.
Thank you GlassHouse for our beautiful window.

Bolivia Day 2022
The whole school turned out in red, yellow and green in support of Noelia, a child we sponsor through the World Vision programme. The children learned about the country of Bolivia and its people including the food they eat, as they enjoyed some Bolivian food at lunchtime. Thank you to our kitchen staff for the wonderful spread they laid on and to everyone for their donations, we raised a tremendous £171 for Noelia.

We took part in Anti-bullying week and wore Odd Socks to show that we are all unique and different and that that should be celebrated. We thought about the message that was 'One Kind Word' and pledged to use kind words with each other. We designed our own Odd Socks with our pledges and made them into bunting to display in school. We all took part in some workshops that either focused on Respect or It's good to be me.
Harvest was celebrated with lots of singing, craft making and contemplation, and how lovely it was to be singing again! Each year group learned about this seasonal festival and shared their thoughts on what they were thankful for. They made a harvest craft which are adorning our Harvest display board and shared their harvest songs with each other in a virtual harvest assembly.
We have also been collecting food items in support of the BAY Food Bank and the Allotment Club raised a total of £41.26 from the sale of their produce which will go towards sponsoring Noelia, through the World Vision programme.

Eco Green Flag Presentation
We were pleased to welcome Sandra Graham, Cabinet Member for the Environment at North Tyneside Council.
Coquet Park First School are proud to announce we have been awarded the Eco Green Flag for the fifth time!
This is in recognition of the continuing projects and work carried out throughout school, in every class, to actively support the environment.
Each class have Green Ambassadors who work together with Mrs Cairns to develop the projects across school. We are very proud of all the children, their hard work and determination to positively support the eco values represented by the Green Flag Award.
Thank you to Mrs Cairns who leads the work across school and submits a very detailed application for the award every two years.
Sandra Graham proudly raised the Green Flag and shared her appreciation, explaining this was the only school in North Tyneside to sustain and achieve this five times.
After the awards ceremony, we celebrated together with a whole school Eco picnic on the field. The staff and children thoroughly enjoyed it. The fine weather made the day a great success!
