School Is Open

Morning. We are lucky to have kept power this morning so school is open.  


We are incredibly proud to have received two sports awards this term. The first was 'Braintree District Sports School of the Year'. We were very proud to receive this award for the second time. We also received a Highly Commended in the Essex 'Education Champion of the Year' Award. This means we got down to the final 3 schools in the whole of the county. What an amazing achievement!! Huge well done to Mrs Smith Mrs Young & Mr Power!!


Tuesday's Christmas Performance will now take place on Thursday afternoon at 2pm. 


We have assessed the site conditions this morning and made the decision to close the school site. The snow has now frozen on playgrounds, paths and roads around the school. This means the Health & Safety risks are too high, not only for staff, parents and children getting into the school site but also to ensure we could safely evacuate the building in an emergency. 

Early Collection

If you would like to collect your children early due to the heavy snowfall please collect from 2:15pm. All remaining children will be released at normal time - 3:10/3:15pm. Please note after school club is cancelled today.
