Henry the VIII AND Year 4

We enjoyed a wonderful assembly by Year 4 today. Everyone played their part brilliantly. Many children have commented to me today to say how much they enjoyed the performance.

Middle Street Football Team

Middle Street football team came first in a mini, friendly tournament against St Mary Magdalen Primary School. Well done to our excellent and enthusiastic footballers!

Christmas Concert

We have a wonderful Middle Street choir who will be singing at the Brighton Schools Christmas Concert on December 5th.
Tickets for the Christmas Concert are on sale at the Brighton Centre box office.

Christmas Performances

Our Christmas performances will be taking place this year on the following dates: Afternoon performance: Thursday 8th December
Morning Performance: Friday 9th December. More information to follow soon.

Travel Plan

You may remember filling in a travel survey questionnaire some time ago. We have had the results back which clearly indicates that a lot of you walk or cycle to school (well done!). The results also show how disgusted we all are at the state of Middle and Boyces Street and the need for cleaner pavements. This information has been passed on to the council. The school will now be able to put together a bid for funding. We hope to use the funding to build a shelter to keep you dry when waiting at the end of the day, to provide cycle proficiency training, road safety training and possibly a bike shelter for those who cycle. Obviously none of this will happen immediately but I will keep you updated on progress.

Year 6 Buddies

We have some very good Buddies this year. Our Buddies are recruited from Year 6 and are then trained to support children on the playground at play and lunchtimes. Our team of Buddies have decided to design their own special playtime certificates to hand out to children. Well done Buddies for doing such an excellent job and for using your initiative.


Mrs Denyer and Ms Whiting would like to remind parents and carers of children in Years 1 and 2 to bring children into school via the outside doors to the classrooms and not to enter through the shared work areas. Many children are working in these areas at the beginning of the day and are disturbed when parents come through that way. Thankyou.


Please remember to send your child to school with warm clothing. They need a coat (thick cardigans and jumpers are not warm enough) for playtimes. Many children are not bringing coats to school at the moment and are consequently getting very cold. Hats, scarfs and gloves are also a good idea.


Just to make you aware we have a few children who have recently gone down with Mumps.

Congratulations to …..

Mia Ebdon in Year 4. She has achieved the standard grade 9 Kyu in the art of Genbukan NimpoTaijutsu. Mia has also achieved her 100 m swimming badge. Very well done Mia.
Inez Ebdon has achieved the standard grade 9 Kyu in the art of Genbukan NimpoTaijutsu. Inez has achieved her 20 m swimming badge. Very well done to Inez, too.

Charity Christmas Concert
