Hangleton News!

The last two weeks have been busy, with lots of planning about the future happening. We have started to meet with our colleagues at other Eko schools and looking for opportunities to share our expertise.

World Book Day was a great success and it was a delight to see so many children dressed as book characters or in their pyjamas ready to snuggle up with a book.

We wish our Muslim families a happy Ramadan! We have been impressed by the children who are fasting and their commitment and resolve. 

World Book Day

Celebrating World Book Day this year was a fantastic opportunity to enjoy time reading together and exploring and talking about our favourite book characters. We had a wonderful day with cosy book time in our classes. Reminder: reading together with your child, (whatever their age,) will support and improve their reading skills. Miss Fryer

Let’s Play: Girls Football Festival

Last Friday, International Women's Day, a group of Year 4 and 5 girls took part in a football festival on the 3G pitch at Blatchington Mill school. Over 450,000 other girls across the country were celebrating International Women's Day in the same way, so they were making history! All of the girls had a great time enthusiastically practising football skills, playing fun games and enjoying the sunshine! We are very proud them. Mr Noble

Science Week

We have been busy celebrating this year’s British Science Week 2024 in school. The theme for this year has been Time. Throughout the week, children have been taking part in various experiments, recording their findings and observing changes over time. The children have observed the changes to apples over a week, the effect of shadow throughout the day and even looked at how particle sizes can change. British Science week was set up 30 years ago to highlight the importance of the subject and develop children’s understanding and curiosity to the world around them. Mr Cole

Hove and Portslade Netball Tournament

We were very lucky to host the Hove and Portslade Netball Tournament at Hangleton this Thursday. Our Hangleton A and B teams did the school proud and worked incredibly hard. Hangleton A finished second in their section, and Hangleton B finished second in their section, so both teams made the semi-finals! Unfortunately, Hangleton A lost 2-0 to St. Mary's, and Hangleton B lost 3-0 to Peter Gladwin. St. Mary's beat Peter Gladwin 4-2 in the final.

Key Question of the Month for Online Safety

March - How can we choose what to believe online?

Please use this question to open discussion at home with your children about online safety.

Borrowed Clothes

If your child borrows spare clothes from school please wash and return them as soon as possible so we have a constant supply at school to use.

Thank you


Please can we remind you to be considerate and to obey the traffic regulations when parking around the school. We have had a number of complaints about inconsiderate and dangerous parking including parking on double yellow lines, across dropped kerbs and diagonally on pavements. This makes the area unsafe for children and other pedestrians and inconveniences our neighbours. Thank you for your cooperation.


Dance Competition, Media working, Show Performances etc

The school is always happy to support children who take part in all types of Media work, Show Performance, Dance Competition etc. Any performance will require a licence, it’s dependant on certain factors which licence is necessary.

If the child is absent from school for the performance, they will require a child performance licence. A child will need a licence if they’re under school leaving age and taking part in:

• Modelling, TV, films, theatre, concerts or other public performances that the audience pays to see, or that take place on licenced premises

• If your child is absent from school or if they receive payment for their participation

• School age lasts until the last Friday in June of the school year

• Licences are issued by Brighton & Hove City Council and are free of charge.

• If your child isn’t absent and wont be paid, and it’s for a big event like a dance festival, a BOPA (body of persons application) is required.

To obtain a licence, the school will need details of the performance including date, where the event will be, Company/Agent who is requesting the licence and the days your child will be off school. We will then provide the necessary paperwork for you to obtain the Licence from the Council. Please note that this must be at least 7 working days before your child requires the licence. All Licences are issued by the Child Entertainment Licence Office at Brighton and Hove City Council. A copy of the Guide to Performance Licences and Supervision for Children is available at the school office.
