Pupils in lower school had a fantastic time this week when they went to see the Gruffalo at the Hawth Theatre. The trip was donated by the Happy Days Charity.
We’d like to send them our very grateful thanks for such an enjoyable trip.

This week on Friday we held a Bake Sale in aid of MacMillan. Staff manned the stalls whilst pupils were able to buy what they wanted from the lovely cakes on sale. An update will follow next week as to the amount raised by the hard work of all the pupils.

Friends have their first meeting of the academic year on Monday 6th October. The meeting will start promptly at 2pm in the primary school. Everyone is welcome to attend.

With effect from 1st September 2014, under the Children and Families Act 2014 the Statement of Special Educational Needs is being replaced by the Educational Health and Care Plan (EHCP). All the statements need to be replaced urgently, and we will therefore be holding Annual Review Meetings for all Year 6 pupils during this term. This process will take place for all other pupils within the school during the course of this academic year. As your child’s annual review appointment approaches you will receive a letter with further details explaining the new process. When you receive your letter, if you have any concerns, please contact Louise in the school office who will be able to explain the paperwork in a little more depth to you.

Good news! We can finally confirm that the building work for the extension to the school will begin at half term. We are anticipating completion of the work before the end of the academic year.

Don’t forget! Wednesday 1st October is Parent/Carer Consultation Evening. If you haven’t had your appointment time please contact your child’s teacher urgently. Consultation Evening is an important part of the process in strengthening links between home and school. The appointment with your child’s teacher is used to agree the targets your child should be working towards during the coming academic term.

Harvest Festival Week: Monday 20th to Friday 24th October, 2014.
Every year we send all our donations to the Easter Team. They are a locally based charity who help those in Crawley and the surrounding area who are in need of financial help due to unemployment or other circumstances. If you’d like to send in a food donation (not money please) the charity would prefer tinned items such as meat, fruit, vegetables or soup please.
