A PRIMARY school in Corringham has received a premium rating from a school guide.

ORTU Corringham Primary School has received the premium four-star rating from the UK’s leading school guide website, Schoolguide.com.

To gain this certification, Corringham Primary School assisted pupils and their families on a wide scale.

This included making food parcels for delivery and collection, regular phone calls to each child’s home from their teachers and, for those hit the hardest by the pandemic, personal drive-by visits and access to the right support were given.

Sophina Asong, CEO of Ortu Federation, said: “School staff know they are getting important things right when parents see the value of the work that they put into supporting pupils, families and the communities in which they live. Well done everyone.”
