Starting School – September 2017

Was your child born between 1 September 2012 and 31 August 2013? If so then he or she is eligible to start school in September 2017.

The application process for children due to start school in September 2017 will begin on Monday 3 October 2016. West Sussex County Council no longer sends individual letters to parents but is advertising the application arrangements as widely as possible and it is in this connection that I now write to you.

The key points are:

  • Applications can be made between 3 October 2016 and 15 January 2017
  • Special rules apply for house movers until 23 March 2017
  • The Information for Parents booklet is available on our website
  • Further information is available by ringing 03330 142 903

Applications made after the closing date cannot be considered until all on time applications have been processed. This may mean it is not possible to offer a child a place at a local school. We would therefore be grateful if you could help actively encourage all parents to apply by the closing date.

Apply online! It’s simple, convenient and timesaving, plus you get an instant email acknowledgement that your application has been received.

If you would like further advice or information contact:

03330 142 903

Free internet access to apply online is available at all:

  1. West Sussex libraries;
  2. Children and Family Centres.

    Deadline: Sunday 15 January 2017

Raising Funds for Holy Trinity Church. Poynings

There is a simple way to raise funds for our local church at no cost to you! 

Shop online via www.easyfundraising.org.uk and retailers (from John Lewis to Thomson Holidays) give a donation to your charity of choice, and Holy Trinity Church Poynings is listed on the website as a cause to support.

It’s easy:

Go to http://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/ , click on ‘support a good cause’, enter ‘Holy Trinity Church, Poynings’ and click on ‘support this cause’.

Then register with your details and after that shopping online via http://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/ will automatically channel donations to the Church. 

Shopping itself is easy – just go to this website and find your retailer and carry on as usual with purchases.  The donations cost you nothing.

You can also use easysearch instead of Google for searches and this gives the Church 1p for every two searches.  Simply go to www.easysearch.org.uk  and put in ‘Holy Trinity Church, Poynings’ where it asks what cause you support, and then every time you do a search via this website funds trickle in.

Bookmark www.easyfundraising.org.uk and www.easysearch.org.uk now!

Thank you for your support!

Caroline and the PCC.
