Welcome to Alderman Cogan’s Church of England Voluntary Aided Primary Academy. We are very proud of our school, our children and their achievements. Our well-developed Christian ethos ensures that all children and their families are valued and helped to achieve their best. At the end of Year Six our pupils leave us, capable of staying safe and healthy, prepared for their future and able to make a difference in their local community.
Alderman Cogan’s Academy is committed to being an inclusive school – ensuring opportunities for all pupils and staff regardless of race, faith, gender or disability. We have high expectations in both academic work and behaviour and every child is encouraged to reach their full potential. Our children are eager to learn and to achieve their best, with the support of enthusiastic parents and carers.
The school has an enthusiastic and hard-working staff and a strong and dedicated Governing Body. Our aim is to enable all our children to fulfil their potential through quality teaching and a stimulating curriculum. In addition to the National Curriculum we provide many other extra-curricular opportunities for the children to ensure that they receive a broad and balanced education. We are helped in this endeavour by various community groups and organisations, with whom we enjoy effective links.
We have a strong partnership with St Aidan’s Church. The whole school is involved in church services at various times of the year and members of the congregation are regular contributors to the life of our school.
