Play Days On Tour 2022

Play Days On Tour 2022Our 2022 Play Days on Tour visited 10 parks and open spaces across the district to provide local children and families with lots of free activities to enjoy this summer.

We worked in partnership with local Town Councils and voluntary organisations, to provide Play Day events twice a week throughout the school summer holidays.

Children were able to enjoy lots of different activities including crazy golf, circus skills, tots football, DJ workshops, the Music Bus, Wish Works Puppets, miniature railway ride, rugby, basketball and the chance to get fit with Pop Steps and street dance. 

In total we had just under 2000 people attending our 13 Play Days On Tour events.

West Sussex County Council has submitted a reserved matters planning application to create an ‘all-through’ primary and secondary school as part of the Burgess Hill Brookleigh development (formerly known as the Northern Arc).

The school will be fully inclusive and include a Special Support Centre to support children with special educational needs and disabilities attending the new school.

The University of Brighton Academies Trust has been appointed to run the new all-through school. West Sussex County Council is creating the secondary school element and the primary school element, which will be designed and built later, is being created by Homes England.

The design of the new secondary school building aims to achieve Passivhaus certification, which sets the standard for low-carbon emissions, use of sustainable energy, and helping to reduce the impact of climate change. The building will be highly energy efficient and generate its own energy on-site using nearly 1000 solar photovoltaic panels, ensuring no use of fossil fuels in the running of the building.

The scheme has been designed to protect, conserve and enhance the rich biodiversity found on the site, and you can view the proposed design of the school at https://youtu.be/zSeonaHiXFs
