HOLIDAY CONSULTATION

East Sussex County Council is consulting on a draft proposal for school term dates for the academic year 2019-2020.  The Council would like to hear the views of schools, parents/carers and other interested parties before the dates are finalised and published.  The consultation will be open until Sunday 18 March 2018 and comments should be submitted by that date.

The consultation is available on the Council’s Consultation Hub.

PARKING

We ask that you please park considerately outside of the school. We especially ask this on the path opposite the school as some cars are parked on the path, leading families to having to walk in the road.

CHANGE FOR LIFE MAGAZINE

Family First is part of the ‘Change for Life’ initiative aimed at helping families to become more healthy and active. They also have promotions, competitions and offers for days out and sports activities. You can like their facebook page for more information and also view their online magazine which has lots of practical and helpful articles for families.

WE NEED YOUR VIEWS

We would love to know your views of the school, so please find below the Parent/Carer Questionnaire 2018. Please return your copy (one per family) to the School Office by Friday 9th February. If you would prefer a paper copy, please ask at the office.

Google reviews

When most people search the Internet for our school they ‘Google’ it. At present three people have reviewed us via Google and we would like to increase the amount of reviewers and also hope to improve our score. If you are able, please go online to Google to rate the school.

If you have any issues or concerns about the school please raise them with your class teacher, talk with Mr Cline or Mrs Rew or book an appointment, via the Office.

HASTINGS THRIVES AT TESCO

Shopping in Tesco in January and February 2018? You can use your token to support Hastings Thrives - the charity which helps children and schools in Hastings. Funding will enable the wonderful Sky Parade to go ahead again in 2018 with the theme Flying Together. Last year over 800 children from 12 local schools took part. You can vote in the big Tesco Extra and in the Tesco Express on: Havelock Road, Fernside Road, Little Ridge, Ore and in Battle at the Esso petrol station.

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.

OFSTED INSPECTION

We are pleased to inform you that at our recent OFSTED inspection, the school continues to be GOOD and safeguarding is effective. Thanks to all pupils, staff, Governors and parents/ carers for your support and hard work in achieving this excellent grading for our school. You can read the report on our Ofsted page.
