Meet our School Council
Squirrel Class – Emmie and Luke, Otter Class – Emily and Theo, Rabbit Class – Scarlett and Mason, Badger Class – Mia N and Oliver, Muntjac Class – Mia S and Kai, Hedgehog Class – Isabelle and Thomas, Mole Class – Phoebe and Noah, Owl Class – Angel and Joel
Two pupils from each class are elected every year to the school council. They gain feedback from their fellow classmates on a wide range of topics from which charity to support to what play equipment they would like added to the playground. They meet once a month to discuss any issues that have been raised and meet regularly with Mrs. Waters to put forward their proposals.
Check out what our School Council have been up!

Thank you to all parents for the support given for our new security arrangements which will benefit our children.

Meet our Healthy Crew
In July 2014 two of our students along with Mrs. Paton (a Governor), some parents and Mrs. Waters started a Healthy Schools Crew. When we came back in September we expanded the crew with an extra two children from each year. We discussed what we could do to make the crew more visible in the school – starting with a poster and changing our name to the Keep Healthy Crew. We now have our own display board that we have filled with messages. The crew try to persuade people to have a healthy snack on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Also, all the healthy members receive a badge so people can recognise them. We have had visits from a nurse who has helped us understand how to keep clean and how to deal with problems such as nits and worms. We want our school to be a healthy place to be!
Keep up with the latest Healthy Crew News !
Last Friday we went to the Chelmsford City Race Course to go to an awards presentation for Healthy Schools. We were there for a total of five hours.
We are looking for parents to join our Healthy Crew. If you would like to help our school continue to develop our Healthy Schools status and are interested in taking part in meetings with the children and staff to bring new ideas and initiatives to the school you would be very welcome.
Our keep Healthy Crew led an assembly yesterday and reminded us about two key areas.
On Tuesday our Keep Healthy Crew met with Miss Hubbard and Jackie our cook to go through our new school menu.
