Adverse Weather Conditions

Our intention is to remain open whatever the weather.   The school would only close if site conditions were dangerous, there is insufficient staff to ensure the health and safety of the students or if conditions are anticipated to become too hazardous.

Please make every effort to ensure that your child attends school and that they wear appropriate clothing and shoes for inclement weather; they may have to do some walking through snow to get to school and /or return home.  If snow causes delay in arrival to school, we will hold registers open a little later so that pupils are not recorded as late.  If the journey takes more time than usual, please do not worry – it is important that you and your child get here safely.

In the event of extreme weather conditions, notification of closure will be made available on our website, sent to parents via our text message service and broadcast through Radio Essex, HEART FM.  It will also be announced on our Facebook and Twitter pages.

Please always work on the principle that the school is open unless there is information to the contrary.

 A Welcome from Mrs Lorna Hamilton

Welcome to ORTU Corringham Primary School.  I joined the school as Head Teacher in March 2014 and I am delighted to be part of this school. Our school is located in the heart of Corringham and we are proud that our school reflects and celebrates our community which we have served since 1870.

We are a GOOD school and my vision is to give every child coming into our school an education they enjoy which prepares them for academic and personal success now and in the future. We are highly ambitious, passionate and determined to achieve success in every aspect of school life. All of our staff and Governors share this vision and work together to make sure this remains a reality.  In November 2016 Ofsted inspected the school; we achieved ‘GOOD’ in every area and for Personal Development and Welfare of the children we achieved ‘OUTSTANDING’.

Our children are our greatest asset and they achieve because of their attitude and commitment to learning.  Our children are supported by our highly committed and passionate team.

We celebrate all our children’s achievements from both in school and outside school activities.  We have an excellent range of after school activities, which the children enjoy and value.  Our school provides quality wrap around care from 7:15am to 6:15pm and provide school holiday club provision for school hours - this helps many of our working parents.

As a school we are very privileged to have such supportive parents.  Our parents are involved in all aspects of school life including supporting learning at home and volunteering in school.  Our PTA is wonderful they work really hard to ensure extra resources are available for our children and to help the school continue on its journey to be outstanding.

In September 2018 my role has expanded and I am now working across the Federation as well as at Corringham Primary therefore to ensure the school continues to improve Mrs Kelly Hamilton was appointed as Acting Head.  I know Corringham Primary is in safe hands.
