Quad Kids

We took 8 children from year 5 and 6 to take part in an athletics event at Shenfield High School. They all did so well individually and as a team. We placed 8th out of 13 schools. Great effort and sportsmanship was shown by all children.

Sponsored Read

Thanks to all the families that took part in our sponsored read. Kelly from Usborne books brought in the books we had chosen with the £550 raised. There are now new books in each class.

First Aid

Each class had a first aid workshop on Monday where every child learnt what to do in an emergency. The older children were taught CPR too. This was a really great day and very well organised by a company. We will soon be organising a free parents first aid session to be held in school. Details will follow.

Forest School

Forest School dates have been sent to you all. We must have all permission slips back ASAP. Please let the school office know if you can be a parent helper on any of those dates as we need other adults to support the sessions. Many thanks.

Academy News

Everything is on track for conversion to academy status on 1st May.  I will confirm this in writing once it is complete.


Please follow us on Twitter and keep up to date with events in school. Photos and news are posted regularly. Find us at @MountnessingSch

After School Club

Step Start Nursery are hoping to run an after school cub from September that will run 3-6pm. A letter has been sent about this to gauge interest from parents. Please return the form by next Friday. Many thanks.
