Visit from Miss Jackson

If your child was inspired to learn the cello, Miss Jackson will be running some free trial lessons at the start of the summer term for those interested. To sign up please email her directly before 31st March; brione.jackson@westsussexmusic.com.

If your child is interested in playing a different instrument you can contact West Sussex music service for more information.





On Monday 6th January, 12 children from years 5 and 6 went to the O2 arena in London to sing in the Young Voices concert. The children sang with 7,752 other children from around the country to create one huge choir. Well done to all the children involved for learning a lot of music and for singing it so brilliantly! 




The Governors of Northlands Wood Community Primary School and the Trustees of Sussex Learning Trust continue to have very fruitful discussions concerning converting to academy status and joining our collaborative partnership. It is anticipated that the conversion could take place in the Summer term 2017 and both schools will keep parents fully informed of progress.

The Orchards shopping centre christmas card competition success

The children recently completed Christmas card designs for the PTA to produce cards and other products for parents to buy. These same designs were entered into a competition at the Orchards Shopping Centre.  I am delighted to let you know that Maise Keningale was the winner of the KS1 competition and Summer Stewart was the runner up in the KS2 competition.  The girls were awarded their prize (shopping vouchers) by the Mayor and the manager of Marks and Spencer, who sponsored the event.
