Electricity Power Cut on Wednesday 20th February

On Wed 20th February most of Fittleworth had no electricity due to a new transformer being installed in School Lane. The outage was much more widespread than expected and although all residents were meant to have been informed in advance by SSE, not all had been. The outage also lasted longer than expected, when it was dark. If you were not expecting to lose your electricity for the day (which turned out to be from about 10.00a.m. to about  7.00p.m.) you are advised to phone 105 for their Customer Service dept.

Congratulations to all the staff and children at Fittleworth School on your ‘GOOD’ Ofsted rating!

Not only is our village school a happy, hard working community, as well as receiving a ‘Good’ OFSTED report recently, the school received a letter from the Secretary of State & the Minister of State from the Departments of Education & School Standards congratulating Mrs Burnett, her staff and the pupils for their very high standard of achievement whereby 100% of pupils reached or exceeded their expected standards in reading at the end of Key Stage 2. This means for achievement in reading, Fittleworth School is in the top 1% of Primary Schools in England.

Congratulations too to Mrs Burnett on her appointment as permanent Head of the school.

Well done all of you!
