    In order to ensure better communication we've undergone a bit of an upgrade. Unfortunately this means that a couple of our numbers have had to change, so please note that with immediate effect the mobile numbers for groups sessions are now:

    Rayleigh Secondary & Rochford Primary - 07470 011165 - Taylor
    Rochford Secondary & Rayleigh Primary - 07470 011145

    These numbers are contactable immediately before, during and after group sessions specifically to enable parents to contact us in relation to problems with attendance, transport or in emergencies. At other times calls should be made to the general office number 01268 741811
