Year 1 Assembly

We all enjoyed Year 1‘s fabulous ‘Oh I do like to Be beside the Seaside’ assembly this morning. Well done and thank you Year 1! Excellent performances by all!

Gaveston Hall Residential

Year 4 are off on their residential trip at Gaveston Hall after the half term holidays. They leave for their trip on Wednesday 8Tth June for lots of fun and adventures.

Book Week

Book week begins on Monday 13th June. Throughout the week there will be lots of book related activities, workshops and storytelling. There will also be a book fair with books on sale. The book fair helps raise funds for the school as we receive commission on the sale of books.

Sports Day Info

Sports day is almost upon us and further information will arrive home soon. I would like to remind everyone about a few safety rules we have on the day which supports staff in keeping children safe and ensures the smooth running of the morning. Parents, carers and relatives sit in the seating block nearest the finish line. We ask that everyone remains in their seat and remain there until the event ends. Do not go on to the track, sit with your child or take your child away from their seat. If we need your assistance we will ask you. This year we hope to have 2 sports day stewards who will guide you to your seats and who can answer any questions etc you may have during the morning. We love having our sports day at Withdean as it makes it really special for us all but it can be a health and safety challenge if parents, carers etc do not follow our simple rules. Scooters and Bikes

Please could you ensure you take your scooters and bikes home at the end of today? Do not leave any here over the holiday. We are still having problems with a small group of young teenage boys coming on to school property. The police are aware and have been in contact with us about the problem. The police have said it would be helpful if parents of children whose scooters have been stolen could contact them on 08456070999 quoting crime reference number: 0829250511.
