COVID -19 (Coronavirus) School Updates

Please see most up to date information below. Any new information will be shared here.

Having entered a National Lockdown, the school is  closed for most pupils. Please click here to find out more.

You must self-isolate if:
– You have any symptoms of Coronavirus (a high temperature, a new continuous cough or loss or change to your sense of smell or taste)

– Someone in your school bubble has a positive test (we will inform you confidentially)

I am delighted to welcome you to Tolleshunt D’Arcy’s school website and to introduce you to our school.

We are a friendly church school set in the heart of the community of Tolleshunt D’Arcy with views over the beautiful Essex countryside and Blackwater Estuary. The grounds are vast and offer good facilities both indoors and outdoors including ICT suite, library, adventure playground and forest area. We have close links with St. Nicholas Church and visit regularly as part of our Collective Worship programme.

The strong Governing Body supports the school to achieve its aims and vision. Tolleshunt D’Arcy St. Nicholas C of E Primary Academy works in partnership with other local school including Kelvedon St. Mary’s Academy. This provides the school with greater opportunities to further enhance learning for pupils and staff.

The Parents Association are very active in organising a variety of fun events. They raise large amounts of money to support the school and their efforts are very much appreciated by all.

If you have any questions or would like to visit us, please contact the school office and we would be pleased to help you.

Mrs Louise Eastbrook
