Update – School Funding Campaign
Firstly, thank you for the huge support that you gave to Headteachers who campaigned for improved school funding at Westminster on Friday 28 September. Over 2000 head teachers attended in London with many more supporting their actions too.
It is clear from the emails that colleagues and I received, that parents overwhelmingly support the need for much improved investment in our schools. As soon as we receive a reply from the chancellor, we will let you know. I am sure everyone will watch with interest to see how he responds to our requests during the Autumn
Mass Headteacher Action – 28 September 2018
I am making contact to let you know that on Friday 28 September, I will be joining hundreds of other Headteachers from across the country in support of a mass event intended to gain much improved funding for all schools.

The whole school gathered today as pupils re-enacted the wedding of HRH Prince Harry and Ms Meghan Markle, complete with a royal guest list of the Queen, Prince Phillip and the Duke and Duchess of Cam-bridge. The bride and groom were supported by bridesmaids, ushers, flower girls and page boys and made vows and exchanged friendship rings in a ceremony led by a pupil taking on the part of the vicar.

On Thursday 12th July, the whole school came together to create a wonderful festival experience celebrating Palatine school. Classes and children took responsibility for creating different aspects of the festival. They made food, drink, games, rap songs and created dances to celebrate and share with their families.
The children took great pride in making and serving food to their community and they loved the sensory ball pit and trampoline area. There was also a camping area where they could explore different materials in the ‘chill out’ tents.
Pablo Dos Ramos created a wonderfully festive vibe by playing the steel drums and the children enjoyed having their faces painted or having a transfer applied.
Amazing activity in the hydro pool today! Here is one of our Seahorses working through her movement programme which have been written by our physiotherapist.
Dragonfly and Flamingo class have been learning about Castles, knights and Dragons. They went on a trip to Lewes Castle. Everyone climbed the steps and the spiral staircase to turrets.
We saw a very long way and all across Lewes.
We all got to dress up in Knight’s armour and chainmail which was great fun!
Mothering Sunday saw the second West Worthing 5k & 10k run for the Thrive Federation. The run was a fantastic success with over 500 competitors and the rain held off to allow lots of supporters to come and cheer the runners on making a great atmosphere for everyone.
The schools would like to give a huge thank you to Tesco at West Durrington for supplying the water for all the runners. We would particularly like to thank Myra Jasper, Tesco’s Community Champion, for organising the water, contacting local councillors, Lionel Harman and Steve Wills, to come and volunteer by marshalling and
