Christmas Performances

Reception & Yr 1 Nativity, 2pm Tuesday 10th December and 6pm Wednesday 11th December.

  • The tickets are free and TWO are allocated per family (tinies that can sit on laps don’t count).
  • Seats in our big hall are limited by fire regulations to 110 per performance so book promptly - the evening tickets will go quickly.
  • Booking opens at 3.30pm today on the Parent’s Evening booking system here. The link will also be on the front page of the school website (if you have any problem booking ask in the office).
  • Be sure to book your two tickets by 4pm on Friday 6th December, when on line bookings will close.
  • Any remaining seats will be released via the office on Monday 9th at midday (not before) - first come, first served - phone or drop in.
  • We won’t be issuing paper tickets - there will be a list on the door.


Yrs 2 & 3 Christmas Celebration, 6pm Tuesday 17th December & Yrs 4, 5 & 6 Christmas Celebration, 18th December will both be held in Totterdown Baptist Church. It seats around 300 so we are not issuing tickets or limiting places per family. You can just turn up.


Christmas Dinner will be on Thursday 19th December. If you’d like your child to have the lunch you need to order it on Gateway, by Monday 2nd December, whether or not your child would normally have a dinner and whatever year they are in. This is Chartwells’ ordering deadline and we won’t be able to take any late bookings. See the letters below for details.


Future Stars will be running a Holiday Club here again on December 23rd and January 2nd and 3rd.

More details soon.


Election Day - You’ll be relieved to hear that Hillcrest is not being used as a Polling Station this time.


ACE Stakeholder Engagement - Research has shown that stressful experiences during childhood have a significant impact on a person’s life chances, both in terms of physical and mental health, as well as social outcomes. In short, paying attention to people’s Adverse Childhood Experiences is about asking “what has happened?” rather than “what is wrong?”  


Bristol is developing a holistic ACE approach across the city, with a focus on recognition, prevention and early intervention and the cultural change that may be needed to support that. Mrs Sewell, who is part of the working party, would welcome input from parent stakeholders, who will be asked to consider and feed back on Brighton & Hove’s current offer and other relevant information. If you would like to be involved you can download more details and meeting dates here.
