This year’s Harvest Festival will take place on the morning of Wednesday 9th October at St John’s Church, Wolverhampton Road, Essington. There will again be three separate services held during the morning as detailed below:
9.30am - Year 1 & Year 2
10.30am - Reception & Year 4
11.30am - Year 3 & Year 5
Each year it becomes increasingly difficult to accommodate all our pupils and those parents who wish to attend. Often parents and children can find themselves very overcrowded and this can of course have a negative impact on what should be an enjoyable experience. To alleviate some of the pressure on the available space in the church for our 74 Year 6 children we will hold a separate service here at the Academy on a separate date, for children only.
We would also like to ask for your support with the Essington Food Bank run by Essington Parish Council by asking that pupils bring in 1 item of non perishable food such as tinned or packet foods, crackers, pasta, rice or cereals to their class before 9th October. These items will then be passed onto the Food Bank who can support the local community in need.
If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact the Academy office.
The Parents Association are currently organising a sponsored school event for this half-term. The sponsored event will take place on Wednesday 10th April 2019 and will involve pupils completing a fitness course around the school grounds, incorporating the outdoor fitness equipment which the PTA have worked hard to fund (weather permitting). The theme for the event was chosen to complement our current work in school on promoting physical and mental wellbeing.
