Children should arrive at school between 8.30 am and 8.45 am and be dropped off in the playground where a member of staff will be on duty.  Any child arriving after 8.45 am should enter the school via the school office.



In cases of severe weather the school may be temporarily closed.  A decision will be made early in the morning and if we close the school a text message will be sent.


Parents can also see the full list of school closures on the Essex County Council website. The page can be accessed using the below link:


Alternatively please visit the Essex County Council's homepage at www.essex.gov.uk, and search for Emergency School Closures or click in to the Education and Schools area, click Schools, click Dates and click Emergency Closures.  The Emergency Closures page will update as and when notifications are received, therefore it is recommended to continue to check or refresh the page.


Child Protection/Safeguarding

The school ensures that all the school community is aware of safeguarding children.  All stakeholders should be aware that the school has a duty to take reasonable action to ensure the welfare and safety of all its pupils.  In cases where school staff have cause to be concerned that a child may be subject to ill treatment, neglect or other forms of abuse, the procedure followed has been laid down by Southend, Essex and Thurrock Safeguarding Children’s Board.  The Headteacher (Mrs Keitch) takes lead responsibility for dealing with child protection issues.  It is a statutory requirement that all staff undergo safeguarding training every three years.



As part of St. George’s Primary School's ongoing safeguarding and child protection duties we are fully behind the government's Prevent Strategy.

From 1 July 2015 all schools are subject to a duty under section 26 of the Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015, in the exercise of their functions, to have “due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism”. This duty is known as the Prevent Duty for Schools.

At St George’s, we build pupils’ resilience to radicalisation by promoting fundamental British values alongside our own Christian values enabling our pupils to challenge extremist views. You can find more information about what we do to promote British values on the Curriculum page of our website.
