Photos Needed for Southend LA Services for Schools Brochure 2020/2021
10 Oct
This year we would like to invite schools to send in photos they feel capture education in Southend as we would love to feature your pupils in the “Southend LA Services for Schools 2020/21 Brochure”. In order for us to use an image, we would need to have full parental consent (for the LA to use it in printed matter and appear on the web). We cannot guarantee a photo will be used in this edition of the brochure, but they may be considered for other projects. We would love to showcase all the different activities and the diversity of our schools, which is what makes Southend such a special place - so please send us a wide variety! Please send your photos to by Friday 1st November 2019.
