Local Cadet students at Plume Academy led important Remembrance Parades on Friday to pay their respects to members of the armed forces who have given their lives for our country over a significant number of years, as well as those serving Queen and country now.

Parades took place on both sites and were led by Year 11 students, Connor Hill and Simon Allman.  The students demonstrated maturity, precision and sensitivity in their parade, reflecting their commitment to both their academy as well as the various local Cadet Forces.

Both parades were joined and supported by important figures from the Malson community, including the Mayor and Deputy Mayor.  The academy has endeavoured to raise the profile of Remembrance Day to their students over the past two years and Mrs Jo Everett, Assistant Vice Principal, has worked closely with the various Cadet groups to create a befitting tribute.  Mrs Everett said, “All students are encouraged to recognise the important role our service personnel take on, as well acknowledging the huge sacrifice they make to retain our freedom and independence as well as act as peace keepers around the world.  The parade is one element of this tribute and recognition, and we have been most grateful for the support of our local Councillors, Board of Trustees, the British Legion, the Rotary Club of Maldon and local business representatives.”

Mrs Everett continued, “We are looking to continue to develop the Remembrance Parades further and are extremely proud of our students who took part in the event”.


Anti-Bullying Week, Monday 13 –Friday 17 November 2017


As the respective Heads of Campus for Mill Road and Fambridge Road respectively, we wanted you to be aware of the events taking place during National Anti-Bullying Week which starts next Monday. While responding to bullying as it is reported and occurs will always be part of our ongoing work, this week offers an excellent opportunity to highlight key and relevant issues around this key theme with every year group working in cohesion.

 The week also helps to ensure that all our young people are considering the potential consequences of bullying, both on themselves as well as to others. The theme for this year is ‘All Different, All Equal’ and throughout the course of the week, a range of topics will be covered including: ‘Raising Awareness of Anti-Bullying Week’, ‘Different and Equal’ and ‘Questions and Answers’. These topics will be covered through tutor time, in year group assemblies as well as in some Personal Development lessons.

 The Anti-Bullying Alliance have produced a short video on this year’s theme which we felt would be good to share with yourselves as a discussion point with your child. Simply follow the link below to view:


As one would expect, the work done over the course of this week may also generate subsequent concerns or questions, and we would positively encourage you to continue to contact your respective year teams if an issue does arise, and if you wish to discuss anything further.

Thank you in advance, as always, for your support.

Yours sincerely,

Mr S Lane (Head of Mill Road Campus)

Mrs J Everett (Head of Fambridge Road Campus)
