Click on the Tiger, for Sussex Virtual School Games

It is fabulous that so many of you are fully engaged with your learning on Google Classroom. Don't worry if you are still finding it a little tricky to use at the moment, it will get easier, and remember you can always contact Ms. Carter or Mr. Phillips if you have any questions.


A Year 5 child has made this fabulous game based on a desert island; look out for that sinking sand!




Do keep sending your photographs in; we love to see what you have been doing and to celebrate and share all your amazing learning.


Look below to watch a wonderful performance from one of our Year 5 pupils. They have written and performed their very own 'Lockdown Song'. We absolutely love it and hope that you all do -we especially like the guest appearance from the cat at the beginning!

     Thank you     

Amazing 'Lockdown Song' written and performed by one of our very talented pupils.

A very special message to you all from the staff at Peter Gladwin.

Baking Gallery

Baking has proved to be a very popular pastime whilst you have been at home. Look at all these delicious treats that have been made. 

Family Gallery

Only being allowed to spend time with people in your own home has meant that we have started to spend much more time together. It is wonderful to see you participating in activities together; it looks like a lot of fun is being had.

An exciting journey starts here....

Creativity, nurture and excellence are at the heart of everything we do at Peter Gladwin.  Children are encouraged through growth mindset, 'to be the best they can be'.  The children are praised for their efforts and never giving up.  We support the children in challenging themselves and taking risks through their academic learning and extra-curricular activities.  We are all life-long learners, and have a love of learning.  Our small, one form entry community school never stands still.
