Open Day 5th November

St Philip’s opens it’s doors for a special open day

The first day at school for a 4 year old can be full of many emotions: What will the first day bring? Will you see your friends from nursery or the park? Will your teacher be kind and friendly?

The teachers at St Philip’s recognise this, and on Wednesday 5th November will proudly open their doors to potential parents and students for a special open day.

The open day will be hosted at the school, located in London Road, Arundel and will be split into two sessions: 9.15am-11am and 1.30-3pm.  It is the perfect opportunity to meet the new Head Teacher Lucy Horne, discuss the school’s ethos and aspirations as well as have a tour of the school.

All the staff at St Philip’s, believe that every child is valued for the individual they are. All students are encouraged and supported to make the best of their abilities, to learn and grow academically, emotionally and spiritually.

Head teacher, Lucy Horne said: “We take enormous pride in witnessing that growth, in working with parents and carers to nurture their children’s potential and celebrating their excellent efforts, achievements and behaviour.

Discover more about life at our school, the achievements of our children and our involvement with the community in Arundel, West Sussex and beyond.”

There will be an overview of the school’s Music lessons, PE sessions, Playtime, Computing sessions and you will be able discover for yourself, how the school runs on a day to day basis.

Not just open to potential Reception class students, parents of children of any age are welcome to visit the school, meet the staff and discover more about what it is to enjoy education at St Philips. You can even apply now for Reception class places for September 2015!

Grandparent tea

It was wonderful to see so many grandparents at school on Friday afternoon. The children were very excited at the prospect of showing their school to their Grandparents. It was a way of us remembering that in today’s busy society, Grandparents are relied on to be part of children’s schooling and home life more than ever before. We managed to capture a few quotes…

“This is an exceptional school for the quality of care and learning” “I wish school was as much fun as this when I was young” “A great atmosphere” “The children are all so polite and helpful”.

Thanks also to our parent helpers who served tea, coffee and of course conquered the washing up pile!grandparents in yr6

Sports Award

We are delighted to have been awarded the SILVER award for Kitemark. This is a sporting award which the school applied for. Sport at St. Philip’s school continues to be an area we are very keen to devlop and promote. With the addition of new clubs, coaches and locality events, we will work towards attaining the Gold Award next time.

Easing traffic congestion on London Road

Roger Everitt from the Arundel traffic Committee has asked all parents to look at possible solutions for making London road safer for all children and easing congestion. These suggestions are by no means actions that will happen once we have consulted but if we have our say, as a community, then we will at least be heard by the powers that be.

The email to record your responses is:

There is a proposal to put a mini roundabout in London Road to initially ease access to the Castle Estate.

 Option A:

Put bollards along the edge of wide pavement on Castle Estate side of road to stop people parking on the pavement.

 Option B:

Extend the school railings at the top of the school steps so children and adults do not have to step into the road to get past people on the pavement.

Option C:

Use wider pavement in London Road on Castle Estate side to create ‘Drop Off Zone’ for children. Challenge: children will still have to cross the road.

Option D:

Narrow the pavement on the Castle Estate side of the London Road to make the road wider and create a ‘Drop Off Zone’ for children on school side of London Road.
