Welcome to our school website. I hope the website will provide you with as much information as possible about our school. It was wonderful to see all the children return to school. Everyone at Dersingham has returned with a positive attitude and have taken all the new arrangements in their stride. 

I am now in the process of updating the school website and ensuring all the information you need is in one centralised place. 

The following updates can be found by click 'School Reopening 2020' on our website:

  • Dersingham Primary School Risk Assessment – please note that this assessment has been quality assured by officers of the London Borough of Newham. 
  • Visitor Information Leaflet under COVID-19
  • Our Recovery Strategy Plan 
  • Our Remote Learning Plan (in the event of a lockdown or having to dissolve a bubble)
  • A flow chart of procedures in the event of a pupil/ staff presenting symptoms of COVID-19
  • Our Updated staff list for 2020-2021

Although our school staff will not always be readily on hand for face-to-face conversations at the moment, we aim to maintain the high standard of communication between home and school that you expect from us. Please use our dedicated parent email parentcomm@dersingham.newham.sch.uk or phone the Office if you have any queries and the relevant member of staff will get back to you as soon as possible.

Even though it is not quite "business as usual" in terms of arriving and leaving school at the moment, I can assure you that Teaching and Learning is very much our core purpose inside the classrooms. All our staff at Dersingham have been working very hard during the Summer term to plan and prepare an exciting curriculum for the children.  We have made sure that we are prepared for "blended learning" in case any class has to continue learning at home during any period of isolation or absence at short notice.

Thank you for your ongoing support, your partnership with the school is invaluable.

    School's Open
    Good afternoon parents, We are pleased to announce that Dersingham will be open as usual tomorrow. After running water tests today, we can confirm that the water supply to Dersingham is working and we have a constant supply of drinking water in and around the school and all toilets are working. We have not had confirmation from Thames Water about water shortages or a disruption to the service. Should this be the case tomorrow, the school may contact you to collect your child. We are asking all parents to check their mobile phones for updates from the school throughout the day and check the school website for any additional information. Do have a restful evening and we look forward to welcoming the children back tomorrow.​

    Good morning Parents and Carers *DERSINGHAM PRIMARY SCHOOL IS CLOSED * Following the advice from the council we have assessed the situation overnight and this morning. The council is advising schools not to open on *Wednesday 7th October* due to a major water disruption affecting some of the boroughs. If this situation continues into Wednesday, it will cause significant challenges to schools, including: - Lack of water for flushing toilets - Lack of water for cleaning - Lack of water for washing hands. These present health and safety risks at any time (aside from Covid-19). In the current context of Covid-19, there are additional considerations around the need for ensuring hygiene and sanitation are optimal in settings where a large number of people are mixing, such as schools. We will be messaging you again about learning arrangements for today while your child is at home. Please do not come to the school the site is CLOSED for all pupils and staff

    Dear Parents and Carers Many of you have contacted the school this evening concerned about the situation regarding no water in our homes. Thank you for contacting us. At present we are all unsure when the disruption in our water supply will be fixed. Many of you I know are without water in your homes tonight including me and many of the staff! *I can confirm that our schools water supply has also been affected*. This means that if the situation is *not* fixed by the morning we will have no option but to shut the school. I don’t like closing the school but you will understand that this decision has been made in the health and safety of staff and all pupils. With no water our hand washing routines throughout the day will not be able to happen. All our toilets will be out of use. The kitchen will not be able to provide food to pupils as well. We will message you as soon as we have any further updates about the water supply in the school. Please expect a message from the school before 8:00am to update you about the water situation at Dersingham Have a good evening
