Children’s Parade

Thank you to everyone who came along and joined us for the Children’s Parade on Saturday. We had a really good turnout and everyone being dressed in black and white ensured we stood out in the crowd. It was wonderful to see the effort everyone went to in creating great and imaginative costumes. The very large crosses, circles and flags looked fabulous too!

Girls Football Tournament

Our Year 5/Year 6 girl’s football team played yesterday in a tournament held at Waterhall. They played extremely well and were awarded certificates in assembly today.

Dinner Money Debts

Mrs Walker is wondering if the troubles suffered by Northern Rock are going to happen to us! We have a huge dinner money debt as so many parents are not keeping up to date with payments. Please check at the office what you owe and please keep up to date with payments.

Too Much Jewellery

Please could I remind you that children should not be wearing jewellery in school unless there is a special reason for it. It is a health and safety requirement and the rule is there to ensure your child is not at risk of injury.

Sports Day

Our Sports Day this year is on Thursday 26th June in the morning. It will, as usual take place at Withdean Stadium. More details to follow soon.

The next School Association coffee morning will take place on Wednesday 4th June at 9.00 am in the Family Room.
