Safety in the Car Park

Please can we all consider how to help to keep our children and families safe around cars, particularly at the end of the school day.

  • Slow down on School Lane and in the car park
  • Reverse parking in to spaces will mean less cars reversing after families have collected their children
  • Not parking in a way that blocks up school lane
  • Being considerate of people living in Stoney Meadow and Oakdene Gardens

Several families have approached me recently with concerns – please help and pass these messages on to other family members who collect after school.

Class 1 and 2 ‘A King is Born’

We very much enjoyed the performances of ‘A King is Born’ by Class 1 and Class 2 last week. Thank you to them all for their work in music, preparing class dances and rehearsing the play. The children worked together so well and many parents / grandparents have commented how much enjoyment they showed in their performance – we have had some lovely ‘thank you’ cards. Thank you to Mrs Palin and Mrs Harrison and all the TA’s for their work supporting the children.

Year 5 and 6 Girls Football

Well done to the Girls Football Squad that attended the Chichester Football Tournament last week at the University on Thursday 28th of November.  It was a close competition and they narrowly missed out by one place to reach the West West Sussex Finals. A fantastic effort by the girls and their behavior was exceptional, even with some controversial referee decisions.

Year 5 and 6 Boys Football

Congratulations to the Boys North Mundham Football Team who competed in the Chichester and Bognor Schools competition on Monday 2nd December. They were undefeated in their quest for qualifying for the Sussex County Finals in Lancing, which will be held on Thursday 12th December 2019. Even with sickness for two key members of the team, the depth of the squad prevailed and they were eventually crowned winners of the competition.

Year 3 and 4 Football

A great result for the Year 3 and 4 girls and boys who competed at the Regis on Monday 9th December 2019. After coming second in the pool stages and winning the Semi Finals they were just beaten narrowly 1-0 in the final.
