Past News ....

We will be taking part in Christmas Jumper Day for Save The Children on Friday 15 December.  Children may come to school wearing their own festive clothes, for a donation of £1.00.


We are holding Decoration Morning on Friday 1 December to make decorations for the school and for children to take home at the end of the term.  This is a real family occasion and we love to see Mums/Dads and Grandparents helping the children with their Christmas themed activities.


It is a requirement of West Sussex County Council that they carry out annual surveys of the school meal service and the data they collect is used to further improve the service.  Chartwells is the catering partner chosen to provide tasty and nutritious meals in our school and to coincide with National School Meals Week, WSCC would really love to know what you think of the school meals.  Last year thousands of parents completed the survey and it provided them with really valuable feedback.  It helped WSCC understand what you like and what you think needs improving and they have been able to use the information to make changes and build plans around their food for the future.

Complete their survey for a chance to win some fantastic prizes!

The ‘We’re All Ears’ parent survey is now running from Monday 13th November – Sunday 26th November 2017.


The Autumn Fair will be taking place on Saturday 11 November between 12 noon and 3pm.  The Fair will be Harry Potter themed and a magical afternoon is foretold!


Please bring your carved pumpkins into school on Tuesday 31 October.  We will be awarding a prize for the best carved pumpkin (either bought or grown).  We will also award an adult prize too!  The pumpkins will then line the path to school for the Halloween Disco.

Thank you for all your support with this year's Mayfair. Many of you helped leading up to the event and on the day itself, and without you we couldn't have gone ahead. I am delighted to tell you we raised £1,589.27 which will be put towards literacy resources for the children.

As well as this, £402 has been raised through the gardening campaign with Bloom & Wild. Again, thank you to those who participated.
