Things may have seemed to have gone quiet these past couple of months but we have been busy behind the scenes preparing for the opening of two Reception classes. We are very much looking forward to welcoming some 60 children for their first day of school in September 2015.
We are delighted to announce that we have appointed our two reception teachers. Rebecca Stewart and Lillie Hadfield bring a wealth of enthusiasm and experience with them and will make learning a fun and positive experience for the children. More about them soon!
For the first year (2015-2016), the primary phase will be accommodated within the main school building. It will be in a separate area and specially adapted for young children.
In the meantime the plans for the new development have had a few revisions and are now back with the planning department at East Sussex County Council. A public consultation will be running until 9 June 2015. During this period the plans are available for all to view on the East Sussex County Council planning portal and there is an opportunity to comment on them.
The main changes are to the access and the system for dropping off and collecting which have been redesigned to help alleviate traffic on the neighbouring roads.
You can see the plans detailed in the document called “Design and Access Statement” on the ESCC planning portal by following this link.
The Planning department welcomes feedback of any kind, so if you have a moment to look at the plans and make a comment, in support or otherwise, it would be very much appreciated.

Parents of children who have been offered a reception place to start in September 2015 will be contacted shortly with details of welcome events and play dates.
We are very excited about developing The Cavendish School into a top quality all through school.
Prospective parents will be updated on the plans as they develop by Sally Franceschi – Designate Head of Primary.
