North Crescent Primary School

‘Guiding explorers of the future’

We have spaces in our 'Outstanding' EYFS (Ofsted 24) for September 2024. New Pre-school for 2 year olds and Nursery for 3 and 4 year olds opening mid September 2024.


At North Crescent Primary School safeguarding is our number one priority and keeping children, their families and our staff safe is at the forefront of everything that we do. Safeguarding children is defined in Working Together to Safeguard Children and Keeping Children Safe in Education.


Safeguarding is everyone's responsibility in school and everyone receives regular training. In addition, we have 6 fully trained safeguarding leads, 4 of whom form the school Safeguarding Team. The work of our safeguarding team is assessed through both internal and external audits, including local and trust governance. 


We follow the Southend, Essex and Thurrock (SET) Safeguarding and Child Protection Procedures
