Notley Green Primary School is a two-form entry school catering for children from 4-11. The school is part of the CHANGE Schools Partnership Multi-Academy Trust which currently encompasses our school, Cann Hall Primary School in Clacton, Shalford Primary School and John Ray Junior School. Together we work to fulfil our work of ‘aiming high – changing lives.’

We know that effective education is the key to securing promising futures for our children in what continues to be a fast changing world, where jobs and careers are increasingly global rather than just local or national. Many of these jobs are yet to be created or imagined. Knowledge and skills do not stand still and no nation on the planet can afford to be complacent in a worldwide competitive environment.

As a school we know this means we have to keep moving forward – keeping children equipped with the latest skills and knowledge they need to succeed and a love of learning, so that we can prepare them really well with all they need before they move onto secondary education.

Our children are happy, behave well and love their learning and develop effective knowledge, skills and attributes that enable them to be confident, responsible and compassionate whilst developing a respect for humankind and the world in which we live. We want every child to have the core skills of literacy and mathematics mastered and learn through a rich and creative curriculum that encompasses science, technologies, humanities and the arts. In addition, we have a rich extra-curricular programme and facilities for ‘wrap around care’. In short, we want children to find their passion for learning at Notley Green by creating a learning community that has every child skipping through our gates each day!

Education is most effective where there is a clear partnership between home and school. We therefore encourage all parents to be an active part of their child’s learning as well as feeling welcome within the whole school community.
