Newsletter – 13th December 2019

It’s very nearly the end of term but we still have time for a bit more festive fun before we break up. Our Christmas Carol Concert is on Monday evening at St Saviour’s Church, Christmas dinner on Wednesday (please return slips!) which is also our Christmas jumper day, and we have our festive fun run on the final afternoon to burn off a few calories and finish with a giggle!

Our choir and orchestra members spread some Christmas cheers on Saturday when they performed beautifully at Leigh Fire Station. Our sitting volleyball team have also been out representing school this week at the annual SPSSA tournament where they finished runners up and will go on to represent Southend in the Essex finals – well done all!


Thank you to everyone who kindly had a Sorrell board to advertise our Christmas Fayre. This week we received their cheque and we are thrilled to announce that Sorrell have donated an incredibly generous £5000! Thank you Sorrell for sponsoring our Christmas Fayre!

We still have a few Adventure Wonderland Santa Experience tickets available, so if you would like to have a fun filled festive day out at Adventure Island please purchase your discounted ticket for just £25 (compared to £50 on the day). You do not have to book in advance! Discounted tickets available via our website

Our final Christmas fundraiser, the Festive Fun Run, will take place on Thursday 19th December during school hours at Chalkwell Park. Every child is invited to run and will be given festive boppers or if preferred they can wear a festive hat of their choice! A small Christmas treat will be given to every child that takes part.

We have just managed to secure discounted tickets for the opening show of the 2020 Christmas Panto of Peter Pan at Cliffs Pavilion on Saturday 12th December at 2.30pm and Sunday 13th December at 2.30pm. Tickets for both performances will be £33.50 per person (instead of £38 per person at the box office).

Saturday 12th December 2020 – seats are in the Stalls, rows D-H

Sunday 13th December 2020 – seats are in the Stalls, rows G-J

Please email to secure your tickets at a discounted price through us ASAP. Please note we will not need payment until next Spring.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your wonderful support and to wish you all a very Merry Christmas & a happy New Year!

Attendance matters

This week there were 31 times when a child arrived late to school which is much better than last week – thank you! Our overall attendance so far this term is 97%.
