Important information for prospective parents of Sept 2021 intake to Reception

Information for parents of new intake for Sept 2022


 We are very pleased that you are considering sending your child to Mersea Island School and are keen for you to come and see our school in action.  Hopefully you will have joined one of our scheduled tours but if you were not able, I would be more than happy to give you a tour in person.  We are also sharing a virtual tour of our lovely Reception classrooms and outdoor learning area for prospective pupils’ parents of the Reception intake for Sept 2022.  

We hope this will give you a taster of our school. 

If you have had your child's place confirmed, you will receive information regarding transition arrangements. 

Should you have anything you would like to discuss, please do not hesitate to contact us via the school office.


We look forward to 'meeting' you. 


Kind Regards

Please see below comments from parents of children in current Reception classes:


'We can’t praise the team at Mersea Island enough for their support in helping us to reach a decision on whether to send our son to school this year. We had numerous meetings and calls with the school and finally decided that it would be the right time to send him based on the support the school could offer and he has loved it. I have personally worked with many state and private schools during my career and I can honestly say that the facilities, professionalism of the staff and the love and care they have demonstrated to our son, since he started in Reception, has been exceptional.'


'I was amazed at the lengths the Reception teachers had gone to, they really had gone above and beyond to create a fun, exciting and safe environment for my child to walk into on his first day. They had also thought about us parents and despite the unprecedented times we are in, the celebrations of his first day of school were not taken from us. We were able to wave him off and spend a short time watching his first interactions.  

I was reassured by their regular communications and any questions I had were answered quickly. 

The staff continue to show great professionalism and care towards the children. My son was particularly anxious before starting school but the way he has quickly settled has been a great surprise but testament to his teachers and the school. Thank you'
