Schools and Education

Feering Primary School

Feering has its own primary school which is located in Coggeshall Road. The school was founded in 1846 to provide education according to the principles and practices of the Church of England. The school moved from its original premises to its present site in 1987, and has been extended to include two extra classrooms and an ICT Suite, larger classrooms in two of the original bases, and a library area and SENroom. The school is now controlled by its Governing Body under the policies of Local Management of Schools (LMS). R.E. is taught throughout the school following the Essex agreed syllabus, which is broadly Christian. Reminder: parents have the right to withdraw their children from R.E. and Acts of Worship.

The School's vision is to enable and inspire each child to think and feel positively about themselves and others, and to grow with an enthusiastic understanding of life and learning. Find out more about the school from its web site
