Safeguarding

Our Year 2 children are continuing with their transition programme of visits to the Junior school in preparation for their move in September.  During week commencing 18th June each Year 2 class will spend an afternoon at the Junior School and have their lunch in the Junior School as well.
During this week the children will be learning about different countries and cultures and this will culminate in an international week assembly where classes will share their work with the rest of the school.  On 19th June we have a whole school dance workshop - Fifa World Cup Dance.  Rachel Squier will be leading the workshops with the children and they will be looking at dance from a variety of countries.
On 22nd June our Year 2 classes are on their school trip to the Sea Life Centre in Southend.  Our early years classes have a special assembly at 9.15 on 22nd June, to which parents are welcome to attend.

Our Designated Child Protection Officer is Mrs Hannah Appleton.  Our Deputy Designated Child Protection Officer is Ms Anna Conley.  We have appointed a new Governor for Child Protection, Mr Jonathan McDonald.
