Christmas Jumper Day – Friday 11th December

This Friday 11th December is Christmas Jumper Day 2020.

Pupils can wear their favourite Christmas jumper to school for the day. If you do not have a Christmas jumper, you are welcome to decorate a t-shirt or jumper with any spare festive decorations you might have. 

An optional donation can be made online at

We look forward to seeing everyone’s jumpers on Friday!

Christmas Fayre

Due to the pandemic this year, the PTA are unable to hold our Christmas Fayre. However, we won’t let something like a pandemic stop us from spreading Christmas Cheer! Masks on, of course.

Therefore, this year, we are holding a Virtual Christmas Fayre for 24 days of fabulous fun and shopping!

The Fayre starts Wednesday 18th November ending Saturday 12th November with our Big Prize Raffle at 1pm. You can access all of this from our website

If you would like to purchase raffle tickets you can by contacting us at or via our media channels on Facebook and Twitter. You can also catch us in the playground but we will ask for bank transfer wherever possible. Tickets cost £1 and as always we have the best prizes!!

Don’t forget to check out our website for free personalised letters from Santa along with Christmas Crafts and Games!

Hope you can join us for some Christmas Fun and help us raise money for our school.

Many thanks,
Cockenzie Primary PTA

P.S. If you would like a stall at our fayre, closing date is Monday 16th November. Please send us an email at and we will send you a form for completion.”

Children in Need – a HUGE thank you !

Building Resilience

At Cockenzie we are launching a special learning programme called Building Resilience.

We are all likely to experience ups and downs in life. However there are things that can help us to deal with challenges and setbacks, and even learn and grow as a result.  Resilience is a key factor in protecting and promoting good mental health. While we can’t always predict what life throws at us, the good news is there are a range of different skills, strategies and resources that can help us to cope.

In the first unit of Building Resilience, we will be learning that:

  • Everyone goes through ups and downs in their life
  • We can learn to be more resilient
  • Resilient people cope better with difficulties

We look forward to working together on this with everyone across the school community.
