This year will see the return of the very popular inflatable Planetarium and the East Sussex Reptile and Amphibian Society. New this year, there will be an exhibition about the upcoming Webb Telescope, the replacement of the venerable Hubble Telescope and a demonstration of Vantablack - one the darkest artificial materials. No booking is required.

The festival takes place in Lewes Town Hall on Saturday 28th April from 12 – 3pm.

CARS AND CROSSING

Please use the crossing outside school at drop off and pick up times whenever possible to ensure the safety of our children and parents/carers. Also be sure to treat other parents/carers with respect. Thank you.

PRAYER SPACE EVENT

Last term we had our annual Prayer Space event. The children paired up to take part in a range of activities linked to the Lord’s Prayer. The activities ranged from creative garden work to writing prayers and watching ‘fizzy forgiveness’ in action! Thanks to all Ministers, Governors and parents/ carers who supported our event, we had lots of positive feedback from all who took part.

PTA EASTER FAIR

A huge thank you to everyone who came along and supported the Easter Fair yesterday and to all the children who sent in fantastic creations for the craft competition! The total raised currently stands at £680.97 which is amazing! Thank you to the PTA and all the helpers for all their hard work and to parents/carers for all the mufti day donations. The funds raised will be going towards the sum needed to replace the swimming pool.

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.

PARENT/CARER FORUM

Thanks to everyone who came along to our first meeting of the year to find out about the ‘We are Warriors!’ theme and our School Development Plan priorities for the year ahead. Find out more on our Parent & Carer Forum page.
