Welcome to St George's School

Welcome to our wonderful school. St George's School is an ambitious and friendly place to be. We are driven by a desire for every child to succeed and be well prepared for their next stage in education. We achieve this through a team of excellent teachers and adults who provide a very high quality of service, delivering success in learning whilst building strong and positive relationships.

However, we all know that modern life can be challenging at times, and being successful can be easier said than done. For this reason we ensure that we are able to respond appropriately and effectively to meet the personal needs of children. Through a positive school culture where everyone is valued, through to the provision of full time therapeutic workers on site, we believe that we offer a very special place to be.

Applications to the school are made via the Planning and Admissions Service at Essex County Council, and not via the school itself. The school is growing in popularity and we advise any family who are keen on joining to apply without undue delay.

Mr Carl Messer BA(Ed)Hons NPQH

Headteacher

Local Visits

To help children with their learning we may often go out of the school gate on a local visit. Your local visit permission slip enables us to do this. We will always inform families in advance if we are planning a local visit, normally via a text message (except for visits to the school field for PE etc). These visits will often be added to the website calendar. All such visits are fully risk assessed and planned prior to taking place.

Junior Parkrun will be held on the recreation ground at 9am on Sunday. Register for free at www.parkrun.org.uk/colchester-juniors/ . Any pupil of the school who runs regularly can order a barcode bracelet and/or barcode tag from the Parkrun website and we will reinburse the cost! (Just show us the items and receipt as proof).
