A Welcome from Mrs Garrick
I would like to offer you a very warm welcome to the Corringham Primary School, where we provide every child with the opportunity to fulfil their fullest potential, academically, socially, emotionally by promoting an enhancing and inspring educational experience that goes beyond the curriculum.
Our school is located in the heart of Corringham, a village in Essex, and we are proud that our school reflects and celebrates our community which we have served since 1870. We are highly ambitious, passionate and determined to achieve success in every aspect of school life. All of our staff and Governors share this vision and work together to make sure this remains a reality. At Corringham Primary School we nurture happy, balanced, confident and inquisitive children – aiming to be the best than we can be.
We provide a caring and supportive ethos which is inclusive and results in happy children from Nursery to Year 6. We strive to strike a balance between encouraging children to step out of their comfort zone, seek adventure and develop resilience, while ensuring that they feel safe, secure and supported. By the time your children leave our school our aim is to have broadened their horizons, developed their all-round potential and given them the view that education is an enriching and enjoyable experience.
Corringham is part of the wider community and we believe that educating children is a task jointly shared by home and school. Children benefit most when we work closely together with parents and there will be many opportunities for you to be in and around school. Our home school partneships are strong. We have a thriving PTA, regular parent workshops and a parent council who contribute to the life of the school.
We are also fortunate to have close links with our Trust Schools, Gable Hall and Hassenbrook, so our transistion to secondary is seamless as staff and leaders work in collaborations to also meet the aims of the Ortu Trust.
We have an excellent range of after school activities, which the children enjoy and value. Our school provides quality wrap around care from 7:15am to 6pm and provide school holiday club provision 50 weeks of the year - this helps many of our working parents.
The best way to find out what a fantastic school we are is to book a tour and see for yourself. To do this please email firstname.lastname@example.org where one of the office staff will contact you to arrange a time and date that suits you.
I thoroughly look forward to meeting you.
