The school will be visited by a team of inspectors on Tuesday 22nd January 2019.  A letter has gone out to all parents and carers by email and paper copy today to provide information about the visit along with a letter and a leaflet from Ofsted.  

If you are a registered parent or carer of a pupil at the school you can tell Ofsted your views about our school by completing Ofsted's online survey, Parent View, at:

Parent View asks for your opinion on 12 aspects of your child's school, including the progress made by your child, the quality of teaching, how the school deals with bullying and poor behaviour. It also provides a free-text box for you to make additional comments, if you wish. The inspectors will use the online survey responses when inspecting your child's school. Written comments can also be sent to the school in a sealed envelope, marked confidential and addressed to the inspection team.

Please complete the online survey by noon on 22 January 2019

Thank you to the Brighton Lions for their generosity in providing the whole of Key Stage One and Reception with a free trip to Worthing theatre to see Aladdin! 97 places were provided by the club as well as the coaches and ice cream in the interval. Our children absolutely loved it and had a magical time meeting the Panto monkey.

As always, the reports back from all involved were that the children were the best ambassadors a school could have, with  politeness and their rapt attention to proceedings shining through.
