A reminder that the clocks will go back an hour on October 29 and to reset your timers etc.. It is a deterrent to would be nasties to have lights on in your property after dusk and I am sure your insurance company would be impressed.

With the return to school there are one or two motors on the school run who tend to drive with more speed than is necessary through the village so please take care. Every effort will be made to make it a safer environment in the village.

We experienced another power cut in the middle of September. Unfortunately all our electric comes via overhead lines and the odd tree does tend to come down and disconnect the power. I personally think that UK power networks do a grand job in getting our supplies back very quickly. Should you require information or assistance during a power cut you can ring 105 and you will receive the help you require.

There have been some strange vehicles in the vicinity but these have been carefully monitored.

Have a good month and take care, Alan

Eastling School

Eastling Primary School has had a wonderful start to the academic year 2017-18. We are pleased to welcome our new Reception children who are now full time. It is lovely to see their enthusiasm and keenness to embrace all the wonderful new and exciting challenges that lay ahead of them. We must also welcome our new Reception teacher Victoria Waugh who has quickly settled into school life.

The school council have already been very proactive taking responsibility for leading the change of our new class names. This process has been pupil led with every child having an opportunity to be listened to. During the summer term the school council had asked for a new more consistent approach to behaviour. We have listened to them and introduced ‘Good to be Green.’ It focuses on children demonstrating good learning behaviours. This encourages children to stretch themselves academically, support others, ask questions and develop their emotional resilience.

Over the last two weeks Years 5 and 6 have been working with Project Salus on a Social Awareness Programme. They have been focusing on Core Social Skills, Resilience and Community Membership. The children have enjoyed this opportunity and will utilise their new skills throughout the year.

The school will be celebrating Harvest in St Mary’s on Wednesday 11th October and we are supporting the church with their collection for the food bank.
