A warm welcome from the Headteacher

Choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make. You want your child to be safe and happy at school. You want their learning to be meaningful and enjoyable.

Our children are excited about coming to school. They feel part of our learning community. Everyone is valued, respected and cared for. We are committed to meeting the individual needs of each child. We work in close partnership with all of our families. This ensures our children are successful and responsible members of the community. Vital to this partnership is our ‘open door’ policy. Parents and carers feel they can approach the school if they have a query or concern.

At Tollgate Community Junior School we celebrate success, reward achievement and support difficulties. Our pupils are keen and motivated learners. They have a well-developed understanding of the world and their role within it. Our curriculum is broad, balanced and enriching. We make the most of first-hand learning opportunities.

We hope that this website gives you a flavour of what life is like at Tollgate. We would like to welcome you to our school to experience for yourself the unique ethos and opportunities that our children enjoy. We hope that your family will become part our learning community and take advantage of all that we have to offer.

Welcome to our school.

Mr S. Dennis
Headteacher

Together Everyone Achieves More

We are all born with an innate capacity to learn. How successful we are can depend on a variety of factors. These can include how we feel about ourselves, if we know how we learn best, how good we are at practising and making links with what we already know. At Tollgate we know that we have children with a tremendous amount of potential. With help from parents we aim to develop this potential.  

If you would like your child to join us at Tollgate, we would love to hear from you. Or you can contact the East Sussex County Council Admissions team for more information.

    Hello! You may well have already heard from your child that after half term, there will be a local cross-country event that Tollgate will be attending. To select the 18 children we will be taking, we are offering a 'trial' run next Monday (18th) morning for the children who are serious about being invited. It has been explained to them that this event is extremely challenging, and that if they are not already a confident runner, then this event is not for them. On Monday, we will be looking for children who have the stamina to run a minimum of six laps of our school field (the rough equivalent of the course at the event). If your child intends on trying out on Monday, please ensure that they wear their PE kit to school and bring a spare pair of trainers and socks with them to change into afterwards. Kind regards Mrs Wood and Shirley.

This is a reminder for parents of the importance to check that external sports clubs are affiliated with the National Governing Body before enrolling their children and that safeguarding information such as name and contact details of the Club Welfare Officer and links to safeguarding policies are displayed clearly on any website. Many thanks and take care, SLES Safeguarding Team Standards and Learning Effectiveness Service
