" Encourage Effort: Celebrate Success "


About Us   >   Welcome


Head teacher’s Welcome

Cogan Primary School is situated at the heart of the community it serves. It first opened its doors in 1884. We are situated on the outskirts of Penarth, in what is affectionately known as the 'old part' of town. 

The children at our school feel safe and secure and are enthusiastic about coming to school. Effort is encouraged across the curriculum and praise given to celebrate success. We are a ‘Values’ school and the children demonstrate excellent behaviour and respect for those around them. We have a strong partnership with our parents and all those involved in our school. Cogan Primary School is a vibrant, caring and fun place to be. Our highly motivated and experienced staff support the children well in their learning and well-being is extremely high. We offer a very high standard of education and positive learning experiences for all our pupils.

If you have any queries or questions, then please don't hesitate to contact us.  This website is an introduction to life at Cogan Primary.  It shows how our children learn and suggests ways in which you the parents can help.
