Welcome to

Cockton Hill Junior School

  1. Pupils




As a large junior school, we have 2 classes per year group each with a full time Class Teacher. The Teaching Assistant team works across school supporting teaching and learning in core subjects within classes as well as delivering intervention and additional support. Across school, classes are named as their year group number and the initial C (Cockton) or H (Hill). C and H classes will usually remain the same on their journey across each year group.


The School Day

The school day is divided into two main working sessions.

8:40 am to 12:00 pm

A 15 minute break is taken at the Head Teacher’s discretion. We use the OPAL approach to break and lunch times.

1:00pm to 3:15 pm


Arrival at School

All children enter school via the small gate at the top of the front yard which is open from 8:40am each morning. Children enter the school building via their year group door on the front yard and go straight to their own classroom. This gives children time to prepare for the day and to be ready to start learning.

School ends for all children at 3:15 pm. Children are collected from the front yard which is unlocked just prior to home time. We encourage all parents, carers and family members to wait on the front yard to collect their children to avoid congestion on McIntyre Terrace. Class Teachers will accompany their class onto the playground for children to be collected.

If you require further information on any of the items shown in this section, please contact the school and we will do our best to help.
