Admissions Consultation 2019-20

Please be advised that ESCC is consulting on its proposed admission arrangements for 2019-20.  The arrangements are, broadly speaking, the same as previously but there are proposals to make the following alterations to community areas:
1)    To merge the community area for Hankham Primary School and Stone Cross Primary School
2)    To enlarge the area for Iford and Kingston CE Primary School to include the area previously served by Rodmell CE Primary School
3)    To include the villages of Streat and Ditchling in the community area for Chailey School (secondary) to create a shared area with Priory School.

The link to the consultation can be found here.

* Please note the addendum regarding Robertsbridge Community College

Issues With Parent Pay

pplogo

Monday 6th November 10:54am: The Parent Pay website experienced some problems this morning, and parents have reported having difficulties topping up their children’s dinner money. We have contacted Parent Pay, and they have given us the following statement “We had a few issues this morning with the platform being a little slow which did have an impact on parents being able to top up. The issue was resolved by 8.50am. We can only apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused.” The Kitchen staff have been informed, and will sub lunch for those students who have been affected. If you tried to top up this morning but were unsuccessful please try again now, and email fiona.harris@priory.e-sussex.sch.uk if you continue to experience problems.

Office 365 For Education

o365We have had a number of enquiries from parents and carers regarding Office 365 for Education, which is free to UK schools and offers significant benefits including cloud storage, collaborative working and licences for desktop Office applications. Please note that whilst implementation of O365 forms part of our School Development Plan for this academic year, signup for students is not yet available as Priory's network management team is still working on its integration with our existing online systems. We hope to gradually roll out O365 to staff and students over the next few months. When it is fully available to students we will of course provide full signup details on this website.

Show My Homework Issues - Update

smhw

Show My Homework, the external website which hosts our online homework calendar, has had a series of major outages over the last few days. These affect all schools who use their service and are unfortunately out of our control. We share the frustration of students and parents at this situation, especially as we are currently running family information evenings which specifically mention Show My Homework!

After discussions with the company their issues appear to be fixed but we are continuing to monitor the situation closely. Their own status page can be accessed here; we also endeavour to keep our own Service Status display up to date.

Latest : The company have apologised for the outages - please see their letter to parents.
