Headteacher's Welcome

A very warm welcome to Mersea Island School's website.

I hope that you find our website useful and that it gives you an insight into our school, our caring ethos, our high expectations and the wide range of experiences and opportunities we offer.  

Our caring community ethos is integral to everything we do.  We expect the highest standards of behaviour and every member of the school community to try their best. Effort is recognised and celebrated and mistakes are seen as positive learning opportunities. Visitors to our school invariably comment on how polite and helpful our pupils are and on the purposeful learning culture across the school.  

We are very lucky to have such a wonderful setting and actively explore opportunities for learning beyond the classroom. We have strong partnerships with the wider community and nurture our pupils to become responsible citizens, independent and resilient learners, with high expectations of themselves and who aspire to be the best they can be.  We strive to ensure that our children leave us well prepared for the next stage of their education, as well-rounded and caring individuals, who feel proud of their achievements and who take with them some very special lifelong memories to cherish. 

Our dedicated staff team work tirelessly to ensure we offer both high quality academic provision and personalised pastoral care.  We are committed to ensuring every member of the school community feels safe and valued. We work closely in partnership with school governors, parents, families and the local community to ensure that we continue to deliver the very best educational experience for our pupils. 

We are all very proud of our school and would strongly encourage you to visit, preferably during the school day, so you can truly capture what the school is like in action! I am always happy to show you around in person and answer any questions you may have. 

I look forward to meeting you.

Working in Partnership - Parent Council Meeting

Next Parent Council meeting will be on Friday July 5th at 9.00am.  This is an opportunity for any parent to come along, share their views with the Senior Leaders and listen to the plans and priorities for the school.  If you have any views, questions or queries or would just like to listen to those of others, please come and join us for a cup of tea or coffee.  It is very informal and a great forum for you to share your views so that we can achieve the very best possible, for all pupils within Mersea Island School.  If you are unable to make this time due to work commitments etc and would like to be part of the conversations about the school, please contact the school office so that an evening session can be arranged.

I am sure you have all noticed the crabs in their new homes!

Bowling Success

On Thursday 25th April, twelve pupils represented our school in a bowling Panathlon Challenge. Apart from being amazing ambassadors for our school, they came back laiden with medals, certificates and most importantly with a beaming smile.  They all thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience, it was lovely to see such happy, confident pupils celebrating their successes on their return to school.  Very well done to everyone who took part and to the parents and staff who supported the pupils. 

Art Club

Our art club continues to be a big success. If your child is interested in joining, please contact the school office for details.
