This Friday we have our reading and breakfast morning from 7:30am in the cafe. 📚


Options evening and parents evening this Thursday evening for year 9 pupils.


Part 3: We really miss the Summer 😫 ☀️


Part 2: We wish you all a safe and restful weekend and look forward to seeing you all once again on Monday


Part 1: A huge thank you to those of you who have shown your support over the last few days. It has been a huge challenge, especially when you really want to keep the school open and we really appreciate everyone who understands it’s not just a quick and easy decision to make.


Retweetd From Essex Weather Centre

Disappointing to see local media once again creating unnecessary panic by using computer generated forecasts which show heavy snow all evening and overnight. This has forced shopping centres, schools, businesses and local shops to make decisions when NO disruptive snow expected.


9:30am start but if students want to come in earlier they can do


Both the warm and mock exam are cancelled today for those of you involved. 9:30 start


Just to confirm everybody is to leave the site at 1pm so there will be no year 11 intervention after school


Yes they do


Yes everybody is to leave at 1pm so no Year 11 intervention


Good morning all. We are open for all students with a reduced day to ensure more time to leave and exit safely. The School Day will start at 9:30am and finish at 1:00pm. If pupils wish to arrive earlier we will accommodate them as always. Please see the attached email sent out.

  • It includes guidance on the joint planning and commissioning of services to ensure close co-operation between education, health and social care
  • It includes guidance on publishing a Local Offer of support for children and young people with SEN or disabilities
  •  For children and young people with more complex needs a co-ordinated assessment process and the new 0-25 Education, Health and Care plan (EHC plan) replace statements and Learning Difficulty Assessments (LDAs)
