Newsletter – 18th October 2019

A really busy week here at school with parent meetings, sports events and even a visit from The Music Man Project ( to finish off this morning. Watching the musicians perform was genuinely inspiring for all and a fantastic experience for our children. There is a video on our Facebook page if you would like to see for yourself!


It was great to welcome everyone in for parent meetings and a reminder that we have open afternoon from 2:45-3:15 next Tuesday where you can come in and have a chat with your child in class about what they have been studying. Please make sure that you head off by 3:15 please as teachers will have meetings to go to and clubs to run!


Sports news


Our Tag Rugby team competed in the annual tournament at Southend RFC on Wednesday. They represented us brilliantly coming 2nd in their group in the morning to move on to the “super 10s” but couldn’t quite make it through to the semi finals after coming 3rd in the next group. They played some superb passing rugby on their way to an overall placing of 5th out of the 15 schools competing, which is a great result – well played team!

Our Year 5&6 girls are taking part in a football tournament today at The Len Forge Centre and have so far won all their games – good luck for the rest of the competition!





Dinner menu is week 2 next week
