I am delighted to welcome you to the official website of St George’s New Town Junior School. Located in Colchester, we aspire for children to be the best they can be, achieving well to help them make their dreams a reality. Children are nurtured to be caring, confident, hard-working and resilient, enabling them to grow, mature and make a positive contribution.

I hope you find this site informative, but would encourage you to contact us if there is anything further you would like to know.

Mr Carl Messer BA(Ed)Hons NPQH

Local Visits

To help children with their learning we may often go out of the school gate on a local visit. Your local visit permission slip enables us to do this. We will always inform families in advance if we are planning a local visit, normally via a text message (except for visits to the school field for PE etc). These visits will often be added to the website calendar. All such visits are fully risk assessed and planned prior to taking place.

Junior Parkrun will be held on the recreation ground at 9am on Sunday. Register for free at www.parkrun.org.uk/colchester-juniors/ . Any pupil of the school who runs regularly can order a barcode bracelet and/or barcode tag from the Parkrun website and we will reinburse the cost! (Just show us the items and receipt as proof).

Emergency Repairs to our Building

Our school building is almost 120 years old. It is much loved, but has shown the scars of age, weather, sibsidence, and the effects of two world wars! Sadly, government funding policy means that since 2010 our school, like every other, has had maintenance budgets reduced by 80%. This has been a shortfall of approximately £250,000 for our school alone in this time. The effect of this funding reduction is visible across the country, but for our beautiful building has resulted in emergency repairs being required as a result of continued deterioration. We currently have a significant amount of scaffolding around the site, but hope to have all works completed as swiftly as possible. In the meantime, the inside of the building is open as normal, and all children are learning in fresh, vibrant and engaging classrooms.

...Recent News... 

School Meals remain £2.50 per day from September 2019.

Swimming is taught in Year 5. Please be aware that a £2.00 financial contribution will be requested for each lesson. Also, please do not allow your child to have piercings as this may impact upon them being able to join in.

Educational Visits are organised regularly for the children in the school. We will need to request a financial contribution for each visit that is a fair proportion of the total cost involved. Vists risk being cancelled if adequate contributions are not received.

Ofsted conducted an inspection of the school on November 9th and 10th  2017 as part of their normal round of inspections. Our school was judged to be good in all aspects. The full report can be read in the information section of this website.
