Welcome Back

Welcome back to school after the Christmas holidays. I hope you all had a great time and received lots of wonderful presents. We have several new children joining us this term so an extra special welcome to them all and their families.

Year 4 Visit to Argus

One half of Year 4 visited the Argus newspaper offices on Thursday. They received many compliments for their excellent behaviour. Even the bus driver on the number 26 bus complimented them. Well done to Billy Mitchell who is the only child in 3 years who knew where the Argus name originates. I must ask him. The rest of the class will visit the Argus offices next Thursday.

Police Liaison Officer Visit

Leslie Owen our Police Schools Liaison officer will be leading an assembly and visiting classes on Monday 14th January. Leslie has been working in our school and other local schools for many years covering some areas of the PSHE and Citizenship curriculum.

Football Tournament

Our football team are playing in a local tournament at Brighton College on Friday 18th January.

School Association Meeting

The Middle Street School Association met on Wednesday afternoon to discuss future events and to prepare for their AGM, which takes place on 31st January at 7.00pm. The meeting will be held in the school library. Everyone is welcome so do come along and join us.

Please see the attached letter from the School Association for an opportunity to win tickets to Holiday on Ice.

Parenting Group Coffee Morning

If you are interested in attending parenting group sessions run by Triple P and would like to know more please come along to their coffee morning on Wednesday 16th January at 9.30 in the Family room. The next series of sessions will be focused on supporting your teenage children.

Lost Property

Please could you name your child’s clothing as this will go some way to helping us deal with the large amount of lost property we seem to collect on a daily basis.

Attendance Improvements

Our attendance figures have improved greatly over the last few months. Our Education Welfare Officer smiles more often these days when she visits us. She is now very eager for us to maintain the improved attendance and punctuality so please keep up the excellent time keeping (lateness affects the figures as well as absence) and attendance.

Congratulations to..

Georgia Ousley in Year 6 who has been nominated by her fellow Kudos Martial Arts students as ‘Female Student of the Year’ and ‘Most Improved Student’ of the year and has been awarded certificates in these categories. Well done Georgia!
