Information about the School

Sir Martin Frobisher Academy is a primary academy in Jaywick, Essex, with a current roll of 188 children. Many of our families live on the Brooklands Estate in Jaywick Sands, the most deprived area in Britain, and we are pleased once again to be able to offer transport to families most in need to ensure these children can attend school regularly.

Sir Martin Frobisher converted to academy status in Sept 2016 and now has a stable senior team who are dedicated to moving the school forward while ensuring the individual needs of the children are met. The Academy has a high number of PPG, FSM and SEND children and our staff are dedicated and understanding of this and of the unique community that Sir Martin Frobisher Academy is at the heart of. New strategies have been implemented, both just before and during COVID, and we are excited to begin to monitor the impact these will have on children’s learning. We also run an Early Bird club before school and Breakfast Club from classrooms.

The children at Sir Martin Frobisher Academy are lively, enthusiastic, endearing and a joy to work with. The sense of community is strong and we are hoping to move back to a Local Governing Body in September 2022 following a period of intervention.

All appointments are subject to safer recruitment requirements to ensure the safeguarding of children and young people. All positions will involve appropriate checks and clearances.
