FOODBANK

The School Council have voted to support the work of Foodbank. This is where donations of canned or sealed food given to the school go to homeless people in the local area or to those in need. If you could help bring in donations for this, please put them in the Foodbank collection box in the School Office area. Thank you.

SAVE EAST SUSSEX MUSIC SERVICE

East Sussex County Council are consulting on ways to cut the instrumental service.

East Sussex Music provides music tuition for over 7000 children in 92% of East Sussex schools. More than 3000 children have tuition from the instrumental service. Their inspirational teachers enable children from low income backgrounds, from rural areas, in challenging circumstances or with special educational needs or disability to learn. Their progress and achievement in learning an instrument and participating with others also helps them develop life skills to enable them grow their aspirations in all walks of life. Thousands of lives have been inspired and transformed by this service. Don’t let our children pay for lazy decisions taken by ESCC Officers who could retain the service, without having to subsidise this, but who chose not to.

See what you can do below.

SCHOOL DEVELOPMENT PRIORITIES

This year we will be focusing on 5 main School Development Priorities:
1) All pupils will be challenged and move on to more difficult work as appropriate, especially in Maths
2) Review and improve spelling strategies
3) Deepen writing experiences in RE
4) Broaden the curriculum with effective outdoor learning experiences
5) Pupils rarely miss a day at school
We have also worked with a range of stakeholders on our Home-School Agreement. You can read this by clicking on the document below.

ORANGES

Due to severe allergies we ask that children do not bring oranges or anything similar e.g. satsumas, mandarins, to school - even peeled ones now. Thanks for your support with this.
