In advance, tickets are £3.00 per person or £10.00 per family of 4 (Please note that on the gates, tickets will be £3.50 each or £12 per family of 4). There is no charge for children aged 2 and under.

Two of the big fund raisers on the night are the raffle and the tombola. We will be holding a non school uniform day on Thursday 7th November 2019 when in return for not wearing uniform we ask for a donation to the chocolate or bottle tombola.


Dear Parents,

 As we approach the end of 2018 FACES would like to update you on some of our achievements of the last year, tell you about our plans for the new year and thank those that have supported us with our fundraising efforts.


We were delighted this year to be able offer each class teacher money to spend on items of their choice to benefit the children in their classes. As you know, budgets are tight and it is lovely that we are able to support the teachers in this way. Some of the items purchased included Octonauts and Lego toys for Reception Class, Digital Story-telling headphones for Year One, A variety of Beanbags, Books, DVD’s and Games for others classes and Plants for the outside area. We donated £200 to our Forest School teachers which they used to buy a long list of items to help support the children with their Forest Schools learning.


We have been able to fund the end of year pantomime trip so that all pupils can attend without any charge to parents. The school is off to The Hawth Theatre in Crawley next Wednesday and we are sure that they will have a fantastic time and it will be a great experience for the children.


We have also been able to help donate towards workshops in school to compliment the children’s learning.


Looking forward to next year, we have planned a school disco for Thursday 17th January and have also donated money for a “New Growth Mindset” workshop for Years Five and Six.  


After the success of last year’s Fashion Show with Travelling Trends, the Ladies Night event it is something we would very much like to repeat in the spring.

If you feel you are able to help with that event please contact the school office, speak to your class rep, message us on Facebook or find Shelley Toovey on the playground.

We are looking to put together a small team of parents to organise the event. If we do not get any volunteers then the event will not take place.


We would like to say special thanks again to all those that supported our Fireworks Extravaganza. Despite the weather the evening was a fantastic success and raised nearly £2800 for the school.

Our sponsors for the evening were Cubitt and West Estate Agents, Hero PA, Birchwood Kia Group, Dark Star Brewery, Co-Op Stores, Premier GT and Downsview Chartered Surveyors.

Thank you to Ashington Scout group leaders who did a fantastic job on the barbecue and we are happy to have donated £178 to them for the benefit of the Ashington Scouts, Cubs and Beavers.


We also would like to thank the following local business for donating very generous raffle prizes – Squires Garden Centre, Bell Leisure, Toovey’s Auctioneers, Washbrooks Farm, Impulse Leisure, British airways i360, AMF Bowling, Flying Fortress, Arundel Wetlands Centre, Slinfold Golf and Country Club, Arun Ventinary Group, Splashpoint, Fishers Farm, Godstone Farm, Amberley Museum, Monkey Bizness, Weald and Downland Museum, Paradise Park, Wenban Smith Timber Merchants, Charles Muddle & Co, Temper Temper Chocolate workshops, Royal British Legion, Ashington Autos, RSPB Pulborough Brooks, Nina Garrard – Neals Yard Rep, Monza Garage, Big Plant Nursery, Swains Farm Shop and Steyning Bookshop.
