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).
