Congratulations
to Laindon Park

Laindon Park Primary School and Nursery is happy to announce that the recently released national figures show the SAT results for the school were 22% above the national average.

Mrs Portoles, Headteacher at the school, said

‘Whilst we thought that last year’s results were outstanding, putting the school 17% above the national data, this year our pupils have not only maintained those exceptional results but exceeded them.  Our results this year for combined Writing, Reading and Maths are 87% compared to a national of 65%. These superb results reflect the children’s hard work, fantastic attitudes and resilience, outstanding teaching and of course, the unfaltering support of parents throughout the children’s time at the school’.

Fire Break Students meet the Mayor
and High Sheriff.

Seven of our students met with the Canvey Town Mayor and Essex County Fire and Rescue Services lead organiser Mark Crouch in celebration of successfully completing their fire break, motivational course. Students spent a week living the life of a fireman on a course that was fully funded by Canvey Island Town Council. During this time they had the honour of meeting the High Sheriff of Essex.

Castle View Sceptre 11th March 2019

As part of the national knife prevention project, known as operation SCEPTRE, both secondary schools on Canvey Island are working with the community policing team in educating students against knife crime. The community policing team visited both Castle View School and Cornelius Vermuyden School with a knife arch and engaged with students, advising them on how to stay safe. The schools are keen to show the community that both schools are working together to tackle any local issues.

PC Esther Howitt (Children and Young Persons Officer) said ‘It has been great working in partnership with the schools on the Island to raise awareness of knife crime, engaging with the students, to make our community aware of the part we all play within the community’.
