Headteachers Weekly Update – 24th February 2017

The children have made an enthusiastic start to term 4 and lots of great learning has taken place this week. Storm Doris provided plenty of excitement on what was a very windy playground yesterday. Having the sun out today for the Friday disco felt like summer in comparison!

Next week we are really pleased to be hosting the first of our Triple P parenting seminars in the training room. It will take place on Wednesday at 9:00 and is open to anyone with children at the school or nursery. The seminar is lead by trained staff from East Sussex County Council and will provide useful parenting tips and hints and an opportunity to share great ideas to take home and try with your family. Two other sessions will be run that will look at ways of developing resilience in children and helping them develop their confidence. You can attend any of the sessions completely free of charge and don’t need to book. Just turn up on the day. You can find out more at www.facebook.com/ParentingEastSussex

We hope to see you in school next week for parent’s evenings that are being held on Tuesday and Thursday straight after school until 6:00pm. Thank you if you’ve signed up for an appointment already. If not don’t worry there’s still time and signing up sheets are available at the beginning and end of the school day. You should also have received a parent questionnaire this week. Please take a moment to let us know what we are doing well and any areas for improvement. If a copy of the questionnaire hasn’t made it home please collect one from the school office.

Thank you to all the children and parents who have completed Paragon homework for this term. Some of the projects the children have done are absolutely amazing and will really help them with their learning in school. Pictured are children from Year Three showing off their work that is going up on display in school. Don’t forget, every child who completes their Paragon homework will be in with a chance of winning a day out at Bedgebury!


Enjoy the weekend,

James Freeston
