Last weekend was the school fair, which was incredibly successful with a total of £3,431.81 raised so far. Thank you very much for your support, to everyone who came, everyone who donated and everyone that helped out on the day. We couldn’t do it without you.

This week has been creative week, and the theme has been “Into the Forest”. The children have been taken on magical journeys through interactive story-telling, themed dance and drama, forest schools, and creative art. All week we have been busy making wonderful giant plants and magical trees for the back drop to our celebratory assembly on Friday. Please scroll down to see a range of photos taken throughout the week.

Next Tuesday your child will bring home a letter with details of their new class and class teacher for next year. If you have any concerns you will have the opportunity to discuss them with their current class teacher at parent consultation evening on Wednesday.

On the 4th July there will be an inclusive arts festival in Handcross, between 12 and 4pm. This will include creative arts workshops, a ‘Do Stuff Bus’, a chill out area, and stands including a cake stall. Everyone is welcome. For more details on this event please email christian.ryan@circlesnetwork.org.uk.

On Tuesday 10th November, West Sussex County Council is running a free anti-bullying workshop for the parents and carers of disabled and special educational needs children.
