Important Dates

Parents and carers are reminded that the school will be closed on the following dates:
Monday 2nd May, bank holiday.
Thursday 5th May, as the school is being used as a polling station.
Monday 30th May to Monday 6th June – half term holiday and Staff training day. Children return on Tuesday 7th June.
Last day of the school year is Friday 22nd July.

Festival Parade

The parade will be on Saturday 7th May. Any children attending the parade must be accompanied by an adult. Due to the scale of this event in public spaces including roads and the seafront, staff are not able to take responsibility for any children during the parade, or make arrangements with parents or carers for collection of children.
Our school will be meeting at point 39 in Pelham Square.
Children in the samba band should assemble by 9 a.m., other families should arrive at the meeting point by 10 a.m. We are scheduled to move off by 10.30 a.m., however, past experience tells us that this should be regarded as flexible! It is a huge event, and the organisers do a magnificent job, but we do have to expect possible delays.
As you know, our theme is Jungle Book. Children are making jungle animal masks in school. Children and adults are asked to dress either in colours that complement the bear, monkey or tiger masks, or, if you prefer, a sari or traditional Indian costume would be wonderful.
It should be a great day, and we are looking forward to another excellent turn out from Middle Street.
The props for the parade are coming along; there has been a fantastic amount of work put into them by a small group of parents. I am pleased that recently more parents have been able to join in, if you are able to spare any time next week, do come to the hall from 9.30 a.m. Thank you.

Lost Property

Can anyone help us to locate a hooded Quicksilver black top, perhaps it has gone home by mistake?


Aran McDonald in Year 2 for gaining his red belt in karate. That is fantastic news!
Well done to Rafe Pol and Molly Skelton in Year 6. They have both been selected to become Young Critics for this year’s Brighton Festival. This is truly amazing, as the competition is very fierce, and to have two successful children from one school is tremendous. Well done to both of you, and we hope that you enjoy reviewing the shows and performances. We will look out for your reviews in the press.

Suitable Clothing

Sorry to nag, but could I remind parents that children need sturdy sandals with proper straps and low or no heels for school. We have had some accidents recently that could have been averted if these guidelines had been followed.
Also, could I remind parents that children should have their shoulders and midriffs covered whilst at school.
It might be a good idea to locate those sun hats, as we are being promised some sunny weather soon!
