Parents' Forum Minutes
Parent Voice Group
Priory is a leading school in East Sussex with Arts, Language and Science College status. We are a consistently oversubscribed 11-16 mixed comprehensive school, situated in the County Town of Lewes, with approximately 1160 students on roll. The school aims to reflect the uniqueness of Lewes, historically and socially. Given our strong association with the author of natural justice, Tom Paine, it is our vision to build upon the concepts of freedom, democracy and justice. You can see our awards here, and read our full Vision and Mission Statement here.

E-Safety Awareness Meeting
All schools are facing considerable pressures on their budgets; the government claims that funding for schools has remained the same, but they do not mention that all schools face rising costs due to inflation and other extra charges recently introduced by the government. According to the National Audit Office, this will equate to £3 billion less between 2019 and 2020.
You may be aware of the campaign that Headteachers in other counties, such as West Sussex have launched, in order to protest at the lack of school funding and the effect on our children and young people. Headteachers and governors in East Sussex have decided to do something similar and we would like to ask you to join in. You should have received a letter from the school asking you to support this campaign and write to your MP. You can find out more by following on Twitter and Facebook.
Year 10 Parents’ Evening 30th March
Priory pupils competed in a Latin competition at Roedean School on Tuesday 7th March. Over 120 pupils from 8 schools took part. Our pupils were competing against Roedean, Hurstpierpoint college, LOGS, Gildredge House, Lancing College, Ardingly College, and Brighton College. Natalie Goldman, Susie Withers, and Hannah Limbrick blew the other schools out of the water with their dramatic rendition of 'Rufilla' winning the intermediate Latin category. A very dramatic performance of 'fabula mirablis' from Lucy Zara, Dandy Freeman, and Becky Clark went down a treat and they got a commendable achievement for this. James De St Croix and Tom Japes did an excellent rendition of 'Aristo' then went a bit off script descending into a beat box and rap at the end of their Latin, but entertained the entire auditorium to a great extent!
ESCC Recruitment of Foster Carers Campaign
East Sussex County Council are recruiting foster carers. It is important that children remain in their local area and are able to maintain their school, their friends and things that are familiar to them. Could you offer respite, short term or permanent placements or short breaks for children with disabilities? Could you provide supported lodgings for older children of 16+?
