Welcome to our School

          Williamson, HeadteacherWelcome to Billingshurst Primary School! We are at the heart of the village community of Billingshurst. Every activity in the school is intended to ensure your child is happy at this school, loves learning, makes great progress and becomes the best that they can be.
Every single child has a great talent and we want to help them, with you, find that talent. We provide a range of activities in sports, music and the arts to develop and encourage a range of talents. We place a high emphasis on basic skills but also in learning to be creative, resilient, independent and adaptable.

Year 2 - Visit to Arundel Wetlands Centre

As part of our science topic about animal habitats and food chains, we have organised for Year 2 to visit Arundel Wetlands Centre on Tuesday 20th March. This will develop their understanding of what animals need to survive and their habitats. The children will
also take part in a ‘What lives in a Wetland workshop.”

We plan to leave at 9.15am and return to school by 3.15pm, traffic dependent.

For our visit the children will need:-

A drink (no fizzy drinks or drinks in glass bottles please)
To wear their school jumper, trousers, a coat and suitable footwear.
A packed lunch will be provided for the children including a sandwich, fruit and a bottle
of water. If you would like to supplement this then please send your child in with food in
a disposable plastic bag.

The day of the Spring Fair will also be a Mufti day - the children can come dressed in their own clothes, with spring theme or in bright spring colours, in exchange for a donation of £1.
