Middle Street Eco School

We have been awarded the Eco School Bronze award for all our hard work in ensuring a sustainable lifestyle. Ms Perry has worked with our Eco Warriors to promote the importance of for example: recycling and saving energy. Well done to Oscar, Stanley, Aaron, Adhum, Josephine, Daisy and Katie from Year 6, last years Eco Warriors and to our current Eco Warriors in Year 5: Summer, Jack, Wolfie, Tanisha, Leah and Dion. Thank you, for helping us gain our Bronze Award.

Sponsored Penalty Shootout

We continue to maintain our links with Brighton and Hove Albion football club and together we are planning to raise money for the club and the school by holding a Sponsored Penalty Shootout on Thursday 9th February. All the children and staff will be having a go at ‘hitting the back of the net’! Sponsor forms will be coming home today and an explanatory letter.

Year 3 in the Blitz

Year 3 enjoyed their visit to ‘The Britain at War Experience’ museum in London on Thursday. They were able to dress up in clothes from the era, view lots of artefacts and experience the Blitz (well almost). The children also walked by the river Thames and were able to see the HMS Belfast. Ms Busby said, despite the cold they all had an excellent experience.

Yummy Pizza

Year 1 enjoyed their Pizzas at Piccolos on Wednesday. The children got lots of ideas for setting up their role play area as a Café.

Police Checks and Helping in School

As you know it is our school policy for all Parents/Carers who wish to help in school to complete a CRB (police check) form. This is a simple form filling process but it can take a while before the results are received. The clearance form is sent to the home address. When it arrives, the form must be brought into school to be photocopied and we then file it in our CRB file. If we do not have sight of the form we will not allow the Parent/Carer to help in school. If you think you may want to help in school or on a school trip but have not completed a CRB check please do so now. Forms can be collected from the office.

Foreign Language After School Club

We are hoping to offer an after school foreign language club. We will run a club for infants and a separate club for juniors. We need to know which language the children are most interested in learning. We hope to offer one of the following: French, Spanish or Mandarin. Please let the office know your child’s preference.

Science at Falmer School

A group of Year 6 children enjoyed a thrilling Science day at Falmer School exploring an interesting array of materials. They also each made a ‘Bucky Ball!
Festival Parade We will be taking part in the Children’s Festival Parade after all. More information to follow soon.


There are still lots of children who are regularly late into school in the mornings (and lots who are not). This is something that concerns our Education Welfare Officer but also concerns the class teachers. Coming in late to class can be distressing to the child and disruptive to the lesson or assembly that’s taking place. The doors open at 8.45 and the start of the school day is 9.0.clock. Children should be in class just before 9 ready for register.

Questionnaires Please

Mrs Noble says please could your return the SEAL questionnaires as soon as possible. Thank you.

Sickness Bugs

A lot of children are catching the sickness bug at the moment, Unfortunately some children are returning to school before they have fully recovered and are passing the bug on to others. You must allow 24 hours since the last bout of vomiting or diarrhoea before the child returns to school.

Lost Property

Lost property will be out today in the main playground. Please have a rummage through. It will be put out again next Friday. What’s left will be bagged up and taken to a charity shop.

Half Term

School closes at 3.05pm next Friday (10th February) and reopens again on Monday 20th February.
