We will hold a Harvest Service on the 12th October in school (time to be confirmed). We are asking for donations for our local food bank. Please can we ask for any non-perishable and in-date food items for families in need in our local area.
All donations can be handed in at the gate or the office. All items gratefully received, even if you can only spare one tin, it all helps!
A huge thank you to Mick Lott and his team for the great progress that has been made with our pond restoration project based on the beautiful plans drawn up by Amy Wardman.
Over the summer holiday they have worked tirelessly to clear and fence the site as well as removing excess vegetation from the overgrown pond. A landscaped mound has also been created and we are hoping to sow this with a wildflower mix. Once completed, this area will act as a fantastic wildlife habitat as well as providing a valuable education resource for all our pupils.
We are very grateful to have received a grant from Sussex Lund, a charitable fund of Lisbet Rausing and Peter Baldwin and the High Weald AONB Partnership to help finance this project.
We have had quite a few cases of headlice in school recently. It is important to regularly check your child's hair and treat as promptly at possible to prevent transfer to other students. It is recommended you treat the entire house and use a 'nit comb' which helps to remove all traces of the eggs. Unleft eggs will usually lead to another infestation. Usually more than one treatment may be necessary and after treatment continual monitoring is advised.
Please can we remind you that long hair should always be tied back. This helps to prevent the spread also.
For advice on how to treat lice please consult the NHS website via this link;
We recently published a survey to parents to register their interest should we be able to provide after school care until 5pm. In order to provide this we are looking for someone who is willing to take up the position. It will be a paid job, working every day from 3.30pm until 5pm.
If you are interested or know anyone who may be please contact Miss Hopkins or email the office.
