Children’s Parade

We are all looking forward to the Children’s Parade on Saturday. Our number is 35 and we will meet in Pelham Street at 10.00am. The Samba band will meet at 9.30.

Brighton Morris Men

We had great fun on Tuesday morning when the Brighton Morris Men danced for us in the playground. They also performed for us in assembly and taught a very large group of children, ages ranging from 3 years to 11 years a special dance.

School Nurse Drop In

The school nurse will be available again on Wednesday 6th June if you wish to chat over any health issues with her informally.

Polling Day Closure

While the children enjoyed the sunshine during the polling day school closure school staff were hard at work at school updating school policies, discussing the learning environment and working in their classrooms. We did miss the children though.

Massage in School Meeting

Year 3 and Year 4 parents and carers have been invited to attend a meeting with Mrs Noble on Wednesday 9th May. The meeting will outline how we have introduced the massage in school programme with Reception class, the benefits of the programme and introducing the programme to children in Year 3 and Year 4. The programme will be rolled out across the school over the coming months.


Sue Fears our Education Welfare Officer and Lauren Wheeler our Education Welfare Assistant are working hard to improve attendance and punctuality in the school. If you do have any difficulties getting to school on time or your child’s attendance record is poor and you would like some advice or support please alert Mrs Walker in the office and she will arrange a meeting with either Sue or Lauren.

Violin Demonstration

Year 2 will have the opportunity to listen and observe the violin teacher and a group of our children who are learning the violin perform for them. They will then have the opportunity to consider if they too wish to learn to play the violin when they move into Year 3. A meeting for parents and carers of interested children will take place in the next few weeks.

Brighton Festival Fringe

On Saturday 5th May following the Children’s Parade a free Brighton Festival Fringe event has been organised for the afternoon. There will be music, theatre, comedy and much more. The event takes place at Jubilee Square (the Library).
