About Our School

We are a small, rural primary school in the village of Slindon, near Arundel in West Sussex. Just off the A27 or A29, we are easily accessible and our children come from beyond our catchment area, as far as Angmering to the East and Bognor Regis and Chichester to the West. 
 
We have approximately 80 children on roll, from the ages of 4-11, in three mixed-age classes.
 

Catkin Class has children in Reception (EYFS), Year 1 and Year 2. In September 2021, we welcomed a full PAN (Pupil Admission Number) of 12 children into Reception. This year our Reception children are registered separately and have their own dedicated teacher. The Reception Children, or 'Squirrels', have an additional space but are very much still part of Catkin Class and continue to utilise all of the Catkin Class area.

Acorn Class (Years 3 and 4) and Chestnut Class (Years 5 and 6) both have 23 children, which makes for smaller classes and ensures that throughout the school, ratios are better than many schools. 

You can find out more about each class by clicking on the 'Class Pages' tab on our website.

 

We have an additional space in our school 'The Glade', which we utilise for small group work and meetings and we use Coronation Hall for PE in the winter and for weekly Collective Worship.

 
We have strong links to our community, including St Mary's Church, The Forge, Coronation Hall, Gaston Farm and we enjoy working our primary friends at Slindon College. Our school belongs to the Rother Valley School Locality and we have strong links working with the other sixteen schools within our Rother Valley family.
 
You should be able to find all that you need from our website, but do call our school office if you'd like a paper copy of any of our resources or if you have any questions.
