Welcome to the home of William Read Primary School.

William Read is a school for children aged 4-11 on Canvey Island, Essex.

Our vision is to build foundations for every child to fulfil their potential in life.

William Read reopens to pupils on Thursday 4th September.  The school was affected by flood damage at the beginning of the Summer Holiday and work has been carried out to ensure that the school is safe for the children to return.  Parents and Carers will receive an update in the newsletter on Friday 5th September.

As a school we are using big writing to enable all our children to reach their full potential in literacy.  To find out more or to download the talk homework, click on the notebook on the left. Each week our headteacher, Mrs Gosnold, writes a short letter to keep parents informed – you can read these by clicking on the envelope on the right.
