Welcome to Pevensey and Westham.

Pevensey and Westham School is a Church of England Controlled School, with approximately 400 children on roll between the ages of five and eleven.

The school has recently undergone a massive refurbishment, which has basically rebuilt the school from the bottom up. We now have a lovely, bright, modern building for our children with much more space than the old school.
The children are split up into four houses, the Vikings, Saxons, Romans and Normans. Good behaviour, work or effort is often rewarded with a house point, and at the end of each term the house with the most points is declared that term's champion.

Some children become monitors in the school, usually older junior children. This means they are given extra responsibilities, such as helping at lunch tables, taking younger children back to class after play and delivering registers to classes. This extra responsibility helps children to feel that they have an important part to play in helping the school to run smoothly.
The children are split into classes according to their age group, and each class has a classroom of its own. The classroom walls are usually covered in displays of pupils' work and other learning resources, which inspire children and encourages them to produce the best work they are capable of.

Pevensey and Westham School is a newly rebuilt school located in the beautiful village of Westham.

 The school is located in the village of Westham just 5 miles north of the busy holiday town of Eastbourne.  The school is fortunate to be surrounded by a wealth of historical, geographical and environmental resources all of which contribute greatly to the programme of work studied by the children. 

Historically, the children have Pevensey Castle, the first Norman church of St. Mary's and Michelam Priory, all within either a short walk or motor journey away and the geographical situation is richly varied where large parts of the County are easily accessible and include designated areas of outstanding national beauty such as the South Downs and High Weald, Beachy Head and the Seven Sister's Country Park. 




The School's immediate environment includes land and aquatic habitats which provide a tremendous natural resource for the study of birds, animals, insects and fish.  We even have endangered species living in our wildlife area.



The Aims of the School
As we are a Church of England Controlled School, the Governors have agreed the following statement, embodying our overall aims. It forms part of our Instrument of Government.

Recognising its historic foundation, the school will preserve and develop its Religious character in accordance with the principles of the Church of England and in partnership with the Church at a parish and diocesan level.

The school aims to serve its community by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice. It encourages an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith and promotes Christian values through the experience it offers to it all its pupils.

In line with the Chidren's Service's policy regarding the curriculum, we have agreed that the primary intention of the school is to give all children as wide an education as possible and to ensure that each child's abilities are fully extended.


Best Wishes
