The Children’s Trust

There will be a public meeting at Hove Town Hall on Monday 7th February from 12 – 2p.m. to discuss the new Children’s Trust Partnership. The partnership is made up of all service providers and organisations in the city working with children under 19 and their families, including Social Care and Health and Education. This is your opportunity to take part in the consultation and to find out about how service provision will change in the near future in Brighton and Hove. To book a place, call 01273 293545.

More Medals for Harlem

Harlem Eubank in Year 6 has taken part in his toughest competition yet, an international match, and has come away with the gold medal in the boys under 12 years, 40k karate competition. This is excellent news Harlem, and you should also be very proud of your bronze team medal. Fantastic!

Football Tournament

On Thursday, Mrs Busby took a team of footballers from Year 6 to a huge 6 a side tournament at Waterhall. They played really well as a team, and came away feeling very proud of themselves, if a little cold!

St Patrick’s trust

I have received a letter of thanks from St Patrick’s, saying that the men and women living at St Patrick’s were genuinely touched by the Christmas cards that the children from this school had made for them, as well as thanking us for the money raised at the Big Bake.

Monsoon Trust

I have received another letter of thanks, this time, from the trustees of the Monsoon Trust thanking everyone for the very generous donations to help support the Mother and Child Clinic at Ranthambhore in India.

School Cleaner Wanted

We have a vacancy for a part time cleaner, with immediate effect. The job is for two afternoons per week, two hours each day, from 3.30 to 5.30 p.m. Mondays and Fridays. If you are interested, please speak to Mrs Brill in the school office.


I have been informed by parents that several children have threadworm. Please remind all children about scrupulous hygiene, washing hands after going to the toilet etc. If your child does have threadworm, this can easily be treated with medication available from your pharmacist.


Whilst most children come to school dressed appropriately for a busy and active day, some of today’s fashions are not particualrly suitable for school wear. As you know, we do not have a uniform, and it is good to see the children express their individuality through what they wear. However, children’s dress needs to be in keeping with being in a primary school at all times. Please do not allow your child to wear any chains, jewellery, wristbands etc., and please ensure that clothes cover shoulders, tummies and bottoms, that they are not over fussy and are appropriate for school wear.

Thank you.

What’s Happening Next Week?

On Tuesday, children in Years 2 and 4 are off to the cinema to see Racing Stripes.

On Thursday, Year 3 children are going on the train to London to visit the Britain at War Experience to support their history topic on World War Two.

On Friday, the school photographer is in to take individual photographs.
