    Proud to be at the Battle of Britain service, in Grays. It was great to see young people taking a lead in giving thanks to "the Few." Good to speak with the head of @BCA_Thurrock, Mark Jones who had a career in the RAF before teaching and plays a leading role with our Air Cadets. https://t.co/od56U9xho6

    New Class Names I am aware that the new class names, using the Year group followed by the teacher’s initials may have caused some confusion. Below is a map showing the layout of the school along with the new class names. We are also in the process of changing the external signs. https://t.co/Atp492Z79X

    Well done to our Year 1 and 2 cross country runners. Our Year 1 boys and girls both won their races. Our year 2 girls came second and our Year 2 boys came 8th. Unfortunately we had a few of our year 2’s away which affected our overall result but the children still did fab! https://t.co/SDTyHkuu4o
