Welcome to Cressing Primary School

I am so proud to be the Headteacher of this fantastic school and warmly welcome you to our website. 

We work in partnership with parents/carers and the wider community to ensure the success of our children. We believe that children deserve the best possible chances in life and that they learn best when there are strong links between home and school.

We are a friendly, caring school with high expectations for all our pupils. Our children are encouraged to explore, discover and question through a range of exciting learning opportunities both within and outside the classroom. The staff endeavour to provide a calm and stimulating environment where good behaviour and mutual respect are modelled by everyone and where everyone is valued.

We are a one form entry school organised into 7 class groups. As a one form entry school, we are in the fortunate position of being able to get to know all of our children well as they journey through the school and we strive to ensure that their individual needs are well catered for.

I hope that this website will give you as much information as possible about our school, the staff and the many activities that our children enjoy through our curriculum and our extra-curricular activities that you need.  It will grow over time as we add more information, but can never replace the first-hand experience of coming to visit us.
