Birthday Treats

We love birthdays, but we are a Healthy School, so if you would like to celebrate your child’s birthday with their class, we encourage you to buy a class book, a game, or send fruit.

We don’t hand out sweets in school, and we kindly ask parents/carers not to distribute sweets on school site at the end of the day.

Smart Watches

Smart watches are mobile devices with many extras on them, including the ability to take photos. We do not allow smart watches of any sort in school. A child wearing a smart watch will be asked to remove it. Adults will store the device securely and it will be returned at the end of the school day.

Sporting Achievements Wall

If your child has achieved a sporting achievement outside of school, we’ll display this on our Sporting Achievements Wall in the School foyer.

We’re proud to display the huge range of sports our pupils take part in, whether it’s a swimming badge, a karate belt, horse-riding, sailing, skiing, dancing or gymnastics certificate, you name it we’d love to hear about it!

Parents just need to email the school office with a photo attachment and a short description of the sporting achievement to be displayed on the wall.

Parking – drop off and pick up times

If you must travel to school by car, please observe the parking restrictions around the school and do not obstruct the pavement or block neighbours’ driveways. If you cannot find a safe place to park nearby, please do not resort dangerous or inconsiderate manouvers: it’s better for everyone to stay safe and be a little late.

You can get a free pass from the council for the local multi-storey car park and help reduce the number of cars outside the school at drop-off and pick-up times.

The school is in regular contact with the parking enforcement team. If you have concerns about parking or you need to report parking obstructions, you may do so directly on the Chelmsford City Council website:
