Headteachers Welcome

Welcome to our school. We hope that our website offers you a glimpse of life at Slindon Church of England Primary School, but to really appreciate how unique and special we are, you really ought to pay us a visit! Information about school tours for prospective families to start with us in September 2022 is under the 'Starting School' section under the 'Parents' tab on this website.


Our school is an exciting place to learn and work. We are set within the South Downs National Park, in the beautiful National Trust village of Slindon, near Arundel in West Sussex. We take every advantage of the beautiful grounds that we have, including the forest that we have direct access to. Learning Outside the Classroom is at the heart of our curriculum. In 2019 (before the Coronavirus Pandemic) we spent 2,900 participant days learning outside, comparable to a small secondary school. So we do more than 'Forest School'. Being outside is what we do and how we learn.

 

And we learn well. Our calm and happy school facilitates the behaviour for learning that ensures our success. Our Christian Values, being a Rights Respecting School and our therapeutic approach to behaviour each contribute to a climate where each of our children feel safe and are able to thrive. Our results speak for themselves in the progress and attainment that we make. 

 

We believe wholeheartedly in the strength of our engaging and meaningful curriculum. We believe that education needs to change and we've been implementing that change over the last four years. Call us on 01243 814330 or email office@slindonprimary.co.uk to arrange a visit. 


We look forward to meeting you.
