High Coniscliffe C.E. Primary School is a small school for children aged 4 - 11 years, situated in the village of High Coniscliffe, near Darlington in the north-east of England.

 

The school is a Church of England Controlled School and is both conscious and proud of its Anglican foundation.

The school opened in 1963 and at first catered for about 40 children. It has grown and changed since then, and now over 100 children attend the school. 


At High Coniscliffe CE Primary School we promote a Christian ethos through the commandments Jesus taught: to love God and to love one another. We strive to promote Christian values of friendship, thankfulness, justice, hope and endurance.

We celebrate that there is something wonderful and unique in every person and encourage in children a sense of awe and wonder about the world.

We encourage high aspirations and self worth by motivating, nurturing and valuing every individual, striving to prepare them for life’s opportunities and challenges. This is why ‘I can if I try’ is our school motto.

We may be a small school but we are a great big family taking an active role in our local community and the wider world.


Our House Team bears

Our House Team bears

All the children belong to a House Team and try their best to help their team be successful throughout the year. This can be through being awarded special honours in our weekly celebration of achievement, House Team Assembly, collecting team points through their work and attitude, presenting Wow Work and talking about it, participation, teamwork, sportmanship and doing well in Sports' Day, Manners Awards from the lunchtime staff and special mentions from Mrs Aitken. The ultimate aim is for their House Team to win the Lumley Trophy at the end of the year or the Sports Day Trophy (or, as sometimes happens, both!)
