Well done School Council 2017/18
To celebrate their hard work and achievements, the School Council enjoyed an ice lolly and received a ‘thank you’ word cloud from Mrs Reeve. Great work Councillors – you’ll be a hard act to follow.
Miriam, Chairperson, helped Mrs Reeve on their visit to Billing Garden Centre, to choose a ‘Celebration Tree’. The School Council had the idea to purchase a tree to celebrate the success of our outgoing Year 6 children, so that they leave their mark at Cogenhoe. Due to the extremely hot and dry conditions, it is not suitable to plant a tree currently; however we are hoping to plant the tree in September/October. We hope you’ll agree, Miriam made an excellent choice – it’s an Acer Brilliantissimum!
Wellingborough Council welcomes Cogenhoe School Council
The School Council had the privilege of meeting the Mayor and Mayoress of the Borough of Wellingborough and other Council officials. They were welcomed into the Chambers, and learnt about the Mace and other official duties. Having learnt about the Wellingborough coat of arms and motto, we now as a council need to investigate our own.
Crazy Hair Day
Cogenhoe has gone crazy! The School Council organised Crazy Hair Day to help raise money for the charity CLIC Sargent. They were then responsible for counting the money to see how much was finally raised. The total currently stands at £150. Many thanks to Mrs McCarlie for helping the School Council.
Look out around Cogenhoe for our Road Safety posters!
A beautiful morning in Cogenhoe today, so our Road Safety Heroes delivered and displayed Road Safety posters around the village. They are dotted all around the village in different locations. Our Road Safety Heroes represented the school brilliantly.
Welcome to our new Road Safety Heroes.
Many thanks to Keith Millard of the Northamptonshire Highways – Road Safety Heroes team, who came to present our new Heroes with their team packs. During the assembly, Keith and Mrs Reeve discussed future plans for the team and how the children and their families can stay safe.
Congratulations to our new team:
Congratulations to our Road Safety poster competition winners, who we also announced today. With the permission of Cogenhoe Parish Council, the Road Safety Heroes will be displaying the winning posters around Cogenhoe.
School Council Update
Our School Council have been very busy since they were elected in October.

Health & Well-Being
To start off Health and Well-being Week Tessa Parkinson came in to meet the School Councillors as part of her ‘Challenge Tessa’ programme, where she is going to as many schools in Northampton as she can during Mental Health Week to raise awareness. We had to stamp her jumpsuit with our school stamp! We have also held a coffee morning for the community to be able to come together for a cuppa and a chat!
Road Safety Heroes
We have launched our Road Safety Heroes Campaign and are eagerly awaiting to see who they will be!
A Big Thank you!
Cogenhoe Primary School MacMillan Coffee Morning
On Friday 21st October, Cogenhoe Primary School hosted a coffee morning to raise money for MacMillan. Parents, teachers and School Councillors all stepped in to help raise money. All the delicious cakes that were sold were donated by the parents, carers and children of the school. Thanks to them everyone had a wide and extensive range of delicious goodies to choose from such as; banana cakes, fairy cakes, chocolate cakes and many others. Furthermore, to create the school hall into such a welcoming and enjoyable place bunting, banners, balloons, inflatables and table cloths were all used. The coffee morning turned out to be a great success thanks to everyone at Cogenhoe Primary School £236 was raised!
