Our Academy

Welcome to Cockburn Haigh Road Academy

Together Towards Achievement'

Close to Leeds and Wakefield, Cockburn Haigh Road Academy is situated in the friendly community of Rothwell.

Currently an infant school, we have two Key Stages; the Foundation Stage [ages 3-5yrs] and Key Stage 1 [ages 5-7yrs]. At present, children move on to Rothwell Victoria Junior School at the end of Year Two.

Our Early Years staff ensure the children learn and achieve through a stimulating and play based curriculum. The provision of a wealth of learning experiences and opportunities, both inside and out create a foundation for future learning.

Our pupils are well behaved and welcoming and their achievements across the curriculum are a credit to the pupils and staff.

Our hard working, dedicated and skilled team include teachers, a higher level teaching assistant (HLTA), teaching assistants, lunchtime assistants,  a senior administrator, an assistant administrator and ground premises manager, all led and supported by Jacqueline Padgett, the Headteacher.

The school day begins at 8.50am and finishes at 3.10pm- this totals 31 hours and 50 mins per week. Each and every day is packed full of new and exciting learning opportunities for all our pupils with facilities and resources that help create a stimulating environment.

We welcome and encourage parental involvement in the children’s education and we believe it is essential for ‘home’ and ‘school’ to work together to enable your children to make the most of their time at Cockburn Haigh Road Academy.

To fund specific projects and experiences, we hold regular fundraising events - look out on newsletters, text messages, email and out Facebook page for details.

If you would like any further information, including about the curriculum, or would like to visit our school, please contact Mrs Glover or Miss Walmsley who are our friendly office team.
