Value of the Month


Our value for the month of October is trust. It seems pertinent to  think about our year 6 children who are visiting Tollesbury this month. Parents are trusting the school to keep their children safe and to look after them whilst they are away (in loco parentis – literally taking the place of a parent). This responsibility is at the heart of teaching and teachers.
