Last Day of Term- Wednesday 22nd July 2015

Non Pupil Days – Thursday 3rd September 2015 and Friday 4th September 2015

First day back of Autumn Term- Monday 7th September 2015

Dear Parents & Carers,

I would just like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very happy and relaxing summer break; it's been a great pleasure working with you and your children over the past year. The school year will begin again on the 3rd and 4th September for staff training and the learners will be back with us on Monday 7th.

A huge thank you for your support for the school fete held on Saturday. After all the expenses, we have made almost £900 which I think is an amazing sum for our school. It was a really fun day and it was great to see so many families join us.

Best wishes for the summer,

Julian Cochrane


Everyone really enjoyed the end of year assembly on Friday when we recognised those learners who have made an exceptional effort this term. We were entertained by the Primary Phase's ‘’Agadoo’’ and the Middle Phase’s 'Summer Loving'.

The refreshments were provided by our College café. It was a lovely occasion and it was great to have so many families come and join us for the afternoon.

The College Phase organised a lovely buffet lunch for parents and students on 20th July 2015. Luke also hosted a quiz, which was a huge success and parents enjoyed this very much.

Students then performed an extract from Grease. We would like to thank parents for all their support for the College Phase this year.

On 21st July students and staff in the College Phase went bowling which was paid for by Luke’s parents. Luke is leaving Southview and will be joining Chelmsford College from September. We would like to wish him well, he will be greatly missed by everyone in school.



We would like to thank all staff and parents involved in organising and running the Fete, especially the efforts of John and Julie Bennett.

We would also like to thank all who donated prizes and equipment for the day, including Clacton Carnival Committee and Witham Tesco’s.


Over the weekend, following the Fete, the school log cabin was vandalised and broken into. Some of the windows were damaged but fortunately nothing was stolen from the cabin.


We have forwarded the CCTV of the incident to the Police and hope they will work to prevent this from happening again.
