Somers Heath Primary School joined the Trust in June 2017 with an Ofsted rating of Good. The Trust will provide support to move Somers Heath Primary to the next level by supporting improvements to the quality of leadership, teaching and children’s outcomes. The school’s performance meets all national bench marks and performs well compared to other Thurrock schools.
Somers Heath School was built in 1956. Somers Heath County Primary School was formed in April 1984 by the amalgamation of the former Infant and Junior Schools.
Classrooms are spacious and each has its own cloakroom area, boys and girls toilets, washbasins and sinks. There are two playgrounds and the school fields, which include a soccer pitch, a concrete cricket strip and a “wildlife area”, which surround the two-storey school building. The Assembly/Dining Hall is well equipped as is the school library.
Over recent years Somers Heath has undertaken major refurbishment including new Nursery and Reception classes, additional classes in all year groups creating a 2 form entry, a new administration block, large staff room, conference room, changing rooms and breakout rooms for small group work.
