About Us

A welcome message from our Acting Headteacher

I am delighted to welcome you to Howbridge Church of England Junior School website.  Whether you are a current or prospective parent I hope that you find our website helpful and informative.  Howbridge is a large junior school in the heart of Witham where children feel happy and safe.  We are a part of the Diocese of Chelmsford Vine Schools Trust Academy and our Christian Values form the basis of the distinctive education we provide.

Our ethos is to support and challenge children to aspire to be successful in all areas of their life, whether that is through achievement or through developing their confidence by learning new skills.  We believe that with high expectations and hard work children can be encouraged to achieve their goals.

Please explore our website further and do not hesitate to contact us if you would like to arrange a visit to the school.  We look forward to meeting you.

Mrs Nikki Batt, Acting Headtecher


A welcome message from our Chair of Governors:

On behalf of the Local Governing Body, I would like to welcome you to our website which I am sure you will find informative.

The Local Governing Body at Howbridge Church of England Junior School (Academy) is made up of governors who are parents, teachers and members of the local community. The role of the Local Governing Body is to ensure the smooth running of the school, that resources are used efficiently and to provide a supportive challenge to Mrs Batt and her team. We are determined to do this to make certain that each child receives the quality of education that he or she deserves. The governors all give their time as volunteers and take their role seriously; having special responsibilities and are actively committed to the school.

I know that Mrs Batt and her staff are dedicated, enthusiastic and approachable. They are committed to providing the children with the best possible education in a safe and caring environment, as they strive to seek even greater improvements.

The school is very much committed to maintaining its Christian ethos and values. If you have any feedback, comments or concerns that you would like to discuss, I can always be contacted through the school.

Mr Will Abbott, Chair of Governors
