Beauty and the Beast Jr

I was impressed with every single person who worked as part of the team to bring the show together; from the technical team who were in charge of the sound, music and lighting, the stage crew who moved the props effortlessly between the scenes and the actors who learned all of their lines, and the songs, to make the whole experience magical. Of course, none of this is achieved by magic! Shows of this quality which give the children the opportunity to take part in such a rich, immersive experience of musical theatre would not happen without our incredibly talented team of Teachers and Learning Support Assistants who have worked tirelessly to showcase all that our children can achieve. Anyone who has seen our end of year show will agree that we have some exceptionally talented pupils who can step up to the challenge and really wow an audience! Mrs French

I think you would agree sports day was a great success! There was such a good turn out from parents, showing their support for all the children, we were blessed with the sun shining all day and the children all thoroughly enjoyed taking part! A big thank you to all that attended and then all that stayed for a lovely picnic outside. From a teacher’s perspective it was lovely to see so many smiling faces and it had a real sense of community spirit! The results: In 4th place were Yew with 1560 points, in 3rd place were Elm with 1670 points, in second place were Birch with 1740 points and in first place were Ash with 1930 points. Well done Ash!

Year One trip to Walton on the Naze

posted 6 Jul 2018, 07:02 by Website Admin   [ updated 6 Jul 2018, 07:06 ]

Year One had a super trip to Walton on the Naze on Tuesday 3rd July.  First of all we walked down to the Hythe Station where we boarded the train to Walton.  We then walked down to the beach and had play on the sand before lunch.  After lunch we had four different activities including compass work, making bracelets and making sandcastles.  The highlight of the day however was paddling in the sea and jumping over the waves!  Thank you very much to all the parents that came along on the day to help, we could not have done this trip without you.  Well done to all of Year One who behaved beautifully all day and were a credit to Kendall.

The control and management of the parking will comprise of periodic checks via their CCTV Security System. The new parking rules will come into force on Monday 9th July and will mean that any parking on the access road (that runs from the corner of Port Lane and Recreation Road to the school gates, Scarletts and ECL) will incur a fixed penalty charge. We have now sent home parking permits with all the children but should you need more please contact the office.

 We have negotiated revised car park passes for the Old Heath Recreation Ground car park. This entitles you to park for free during pick up and drop off times for Breakfast Club, After School Clubs, PTA discos as well as the normal times.  The full article regarding this can be found in our Newsletter dated 29th June 2018. 6th July addition - We have now sent home parking permits with all the children but should you need more please contact the office.
