Welcome to our school.

Welcome to the new website for Cottesbrooke Infant School.

I hope you will enjoy finding out about us.

Our school was rebuilt in 1998 and is a beautiful modern building.

We pride ourselves on being an inclusive school where everyone is made to feel welcome and valued.

Our Mission Statement

Our aim is to provide a Caring, Inspiring and Successful school.

We will strive for perfection, build on strengths and aim to bring out the best in everyone.

We want our school to be a happy, friendly place which values what each person brings. Our school will be multicultural and inclusive.



Admission to school

Admission to a Reception class is managed by the Local Education Authority. You will be sent a book detailing the procedure for getting a school place for your child and you will need to return it to the LEA by December 2006 for a school place for September 2007. If you do not receive your booklet soon then contact the Admissions and Appeals office on 303 2536.

If you would like to come and see our school please ring or call in and we will be happy to show you around.

We can admit 90 children into Reception each year and we have a 39 place Nursery, which means we can offer up to 78 part-time places. We are usually able to offer some full-time places depending on children meeting certain criteria.

Nursery admissions are dealt with by us so if you have not yet registered with us please come and see us soon. Parents will be informed in April if they have been successful in obtaining a place for September. All offers will be for a part-time place.


If you would like your child to attend Cottesbrooke Nursery Class we offer part-time places, either morning of afternoon.  Children are eligible to attend Nursery in the September following their third birthday.  Places are allocated in April preceeding the September intake.  You may come and look around the school at any time, just telephone to make arrangements.

You may print off the application form by clicking on the link below or come in to school for a form bringing your child's birth certificate with you.

Home School Agreement


At Cottesbrooke Infant School we believe that children will make the best progress if we the teachers and you the parents can work closely together in an atmosphere of trust and respect for one another.

You as parents are the first 'educators' of your child and indeed children will have learned more in the first years of their lives than they ever will again. You will have taken them from being helpless new born babies to walking, talking, thinking, reasoning and reasonable people. All this they have learned from you.

Now that your child has started full-time education, you are passing some of the responsibility for their learning to us. We use our specialist skills and knowledge to teach not only all areas of the National Curriculum but help your child to develop and grow in all the areas of social and moral learning. Together we hopefully prepare them to become good citizens, happy and successful people.

If your child is to make the most of their time at school then there must be responsibilities on both sides. We will make commitments to you and your child and in return we ask that you accept certain responsibilities as caring parents and enter into a pact with us on that basis.This way we hope that you will have a clear understanding of what to expect from us and what we in return expect from you.

We therefore ask you to sign two copies of this pact, one of which you keep and one of which forms part of your child's record of achievement at this school.
