Our book week takes place in the week beginning 6th October. During that week children will be engaged in a number of book related activities in and out of school. We will also have a Book Fair in school where books will be on sale for you to purchase. The Book Fair is on for one day only which is Monday 6th October.

Black History Month Event

As you know October is Black History month. This time is marked in a variety of ways across the school, which includes drama workshops for Key Stage 2 classes this Monday. Big Foot Drama Company will be in school for the day working with each Key Stage 2 class exploring how the people from Jamaica came to settle in the UK. The workshops are funded by the school.

Middle Street Star Footballer

I am very pleased to announce that Gabriel Davis-Winstanley in Year 6 has been selected for the under 11 Brighton and Hove District Schools Football Squad. A place in this team is a great achievement and is a great honour for Gabriel and Middle Street. Places are only awarded for exceptional players. Congratulations Gabriel and very well done!

Office Post Box

To avoid long queues at the office desk in the mornings we are providing a post box for you to post payments etc into. Please put payments and details in an envelope and post it in the box rather than queuing to pay at the desk. Use the post box for lunch, trip and any other payments but please ensure you enclose all the relevant details in or on the envelope to avoid confusion. You may also use the box to post other forms etc. Hopefully this will improve your mornings and ensure a quick exit for you once you have dropped off your child.

Half Term Break

We finish for the half term break at 3.05 on Friday 24th October and re-open on Tuesday 4th November. We are closed on the Monday for a training day.
