The Safer, Greener, Healthier team at Essex County Council want to encourage as many children as possible – as well as their parents/carers – to walk, cycle or scoot to school. Not only will this help with congestion and air quality by reducing emissions, but it will also help improve our children’s mental and physical health.
Following recent engagement work, we’re pleased to say that some of the measures that could be implemented this year include:
- upgrading the existing bollards at the junction of Trinity Road/Hill Road,
- increased provision of enforcement officers,
- installation of 20s plenty signage,
- park & stride from Meadows Retail carpark with Wayfinding signs,
- thermoplastic road signs (Children Crossing Warning) and
- temporary street art.
All measures are subject to on-going consultation and engagement with interested parties. For more information, please follow them on Twitter: @SGH_Essex
Please ensure you have read the information sent out from Mrs Burrells, which has been attached with this Newsletter. She has information for you all about how to apply for parking permits to the Meadows Retail Park, to enable you to park there for free during the busy
drop off and pick up times. Information about how to apply for one is in her letter.
Thank you to all the children that have sent in their entries. We have been looking at them all and will be making a decision shortly. Winners will be announced next week!
This year we will be taking part in Jeans for Genes week by wearing our jeans to school on Friday 23rd September. Jeans for Genes is an annual fundraising event for the genetic condition community. Many are either born or live with a diagnosed genetic condition and this fundraising event provides some money and awareness to the research that needs to go into ensuring more people can either live with or eventually live without genetic conditions throughout their life. We welcome a £1 donation in return for your child being able to wear their jeans to school on Friday 23rd September.
This is a non-uniform day for the children with denim or double denim!
Children are not expected to wear their school uniform but they are welcome to if they wish.
School Clubs places have been allocated and you would have received confirmation from school if your child has a place.
We have increased the number of clubs again this year and have varied the types of clubs and the ages that they are for – this was something you asked for in your parent survey responses in the summer term. We are still looking at buying in specialist clubs which will incur a cost if you apply, and we will let you know when these become available.
Thank you for your patience and informing us about some glitches to the club places this term, this was an error with the automated system that sends out the emails. The office team have sorted this now.
