A warm welcome from the Headteacher

Choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. You will want your child to be safe and happy at school, where the learning is meaningful and enjoyable. Our children are excited about coming to school and being part of our learning community where everyone is valued, respected and cared for. We are committed to meeting the individual needs of each child and we work in close partnership with all of our families in order to ensure our children are successful and responsible members of the community. Vital to this partnership is our ‘open door’ policy that ensures parents and carers feel confident in approaching the school in the event of a query or concern.

We believe that Tollgate Community Junior School provides a journey whereby success is met with celebration; achievements are met with rewards and difficulties met with support, resulting in keen and motivated learners who have a well-developed understanding of the world and their role within it. Our curriculum is broad, balanced and enriching, making 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 also like to personally welcome you to our school in order for you to experience for yourself the unique ethos and opportunities that our children enjoy. We hope very much that you and your family will become part our learning community and will want to take advantage of all that we have to offer.

Welcome to our school.

Mr S. Dennis

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 including how we feel about ourselves, our ability to recognise how we learn best, how good we are at practising things and being able to make links with what we already know. At Tollgate we recognise that we have children with a tremendous amount of potential and our aim is to exploit this with parental help.

    Important message
    Dear Parents and Carers, Without wishing to alarm you, I thought you should know that one of our children was approached by a man at 8.00 am in Winston Crescent. The man told the child that he worked at Tollgate whereas in fact he does not and is not known to us. The child was not hurt and very sensibly came straight into school. I have contacted Sussex Police in order to make them aware. I would be grateful if you would reinforce, without scaring your child, the need to stay safe particularly when not being supervised by a known adult. Could I also remind you that we cannot take responsibility for children who arrive at school on their own before 8.30 am. Many thanks, Stephen Dennis Headteacher
