PTA

On Monday 21st May as part of our Royal Wedding Celebrations, the PTA will be
holding a bake-off competition.
Judging of the bake-off will take place after lunch and parents are invited to view the entries from 2pm.

At approximately 2.25pm the whole school will be performing some songs, after which the children can be collected from their class and take part in the community event including cake sale, cream tea, garden games, craft and other activities. Your child can also wear or bring in a red, white or blue item on Monday (flags, hair band etc).

The KS1 disco will take place on Thursday 24th May from 5.30 - 6.30pm at a cost of £2 per child (payable on the door). Please return the consent slip if you would like your child to attend, and ensure your child is signed in and out by an adult on the night.

The Summer Fair will take place on Saturday 16th June. Raffle tickets will shortly be going home in bookbags – there are lots of fabulous prizes available! We would also be very grateful for helpers for setting up and running stalls on the day. Please let the Office or a PTA member know if you are able to help in any way.

Thank you to all those that supported the Bag2School event. A total of £100 was raised for the PTA from this activity. The PTA Quiz night also raised just under £250. Thank you to all those who attended!

MENU CHANGE

On Thursday 17th and Monday 21st May there are changes to the normal menu as part of the Royal Wedding celebrations. See the document below for details.

LESS CO2

As part of our LESS Co2 learning, each class has been given a smart meter, which children may take home to investigate their energy use at home. Please speak to your child’s teacher for further details.

1066 DISCOUNT CARDS

1066 Discount Cards are now available from the PTA at a cost of £10, and are valid until December 2019! These cards offer great discounts on days out, shops, cafes, restaurants and takeaways with lots of local businesses around East Sussex. Please see the letter attached for further details of how to order.

TUCK SHOP

From 8th May ‘Little Jude’s' milk lollies will be available at break times priced at 50p. The following items are also available for tuck: bagels (40p), watermelon (30p), ¼ apple (10p), sultanas (20p).

SWIMMING CONTRIBUTIONS

Thank you again to all those who have paid their swimming contribution and also made donations to the PTA pool fund. If you are not sure whether you have paid, we have a list at the Office and can check for you!

TAKING CHILDREN EARLY

Please remember that school finishes at 3.15pm and children should not be collected before this time unless prior arrangements have been made with the office e.g. for medical appointments. Taking children early without previous notice can be disrupting both for the class and for staff and also may cause children to miss letters, homework etc. at the end of the day. Thank you for your support.

GUESTLING YOUTUBE CHANNEL

CHANGE FOR LIFE MAGAZINE

Family First is part of the ‘Change for Life’ initiative aimed at helping families to become more healthy and active. They also have promotions, competitions and offers for days out and sports activities. You can like their facebook page for more information and also view their online magazine which has lots of practical and helpful articles for families.

SCHOOL DEVELOPMENT PRIORITIES

This year we will be focusing on 5 main School Development Priorities:
1) All pupils will be challenged and move on to more difficult work as appropriate, especially in Maths
2) Review and improve spelling strategies
3) Deepen writing experiences in RE
4) Broaden the curriculum with effective outdoor learning experiences
5) Pupils rarely miss a day at school
We have also worked with a range of stakeholders on our Home-School Agreement. You can read this by clicking on the document below.

ORANGES

Due to severe allergies we ask that children do not bring oranges or anything similar e.g. satsumas, mandarins, to school - even peeled ones now. Thanks for your support with this.

PARENT/CARER FORUM

Thanks to everyone who came along to our first meeting of the year to find out about the ‘We are Warriors!’ theme and our School Development Plan priorities for the year ahead. Find out more on our Parent & Carer Forum page.

OFSTED INSPECTION

We are pleased to inform you that at our recent OFSTED inspection, the school continues to be GOOD and safeguarding is effective. Thanks to all pupils, staff, Governors and parents/ carers for your support and hard work in achieving this excellent grading for our school. You can read the report on our Ofsted page.
