Welcome to the Plumpton Primary School!  

I am delighted to welcome you to Plumpton Primary School, where we provide continuity of education for children aged between four and eleven.

Plumpton Primary School is a village school and we maintain close links with the local community.  We have an active Parent Teacher and Friends Association (PPTFA) that is successful in linking the school with the local community and raising funds.

We believe that the happiness, well-being and success of each individual child is paramount. Through our broad and balanced curriculum each child is able to maximise their different talents and skills. Furthermore we are proud to be able to offer an extensive range of activities in out of school hours for children.  We aim to give children a sense of confidence in their own abilities, and to encourage them to be independent and responsible.

Our strong team of well-qualified experienced teachers and support staff works closely together for the benefit of all the children. Partnership with parents is important to us.  A weekly newsletter, together with opportunities for discussions with teachers, are just two ways in which we ensure that partnership remains strong and focused on each and every child.

Parents of prospective children to the school are warmly invited to attend a formal meeting in January but I would urge you to contact the school at any time if you would like to come in and get a flavour of the experiences available.

Thank you for your interest in Plumpton Primary School.  Please enjoy the areas of the website available and let us have feedback.  For your convenience our prospectus is available here.

newschool2.jpg (2844031 bytes)Plumpton Primary School currently has 150 children on roll (September 2006) from the ages of five to eleven.  There are seven single-age classes: Reception, Year 1, Year 2, Year 3, Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6 (see Staff Page for details).

The school community is currently developing long term plans for the development of the school grounds.  This will allow an extension of opportunities for children to learn within a broad and balanced curriculum, maximising the entire environment available.

The school continues to be an active member of the community.  Governors and staff are keen to further develop the school to support the aspirations of the children within it.


For detailed guidance on school admissions please click HERE to visit the East Sussex County Council School Admissions team website.  The 2006-2007 admissions documents are available HERE.

Reception:  Plumpton Primary School admits children to the Reception Class in the year in which they are five; they become full-time at the beginning of the term in which they become five.

Parents of children who will be entering our Reception class are welcome to our Open Afternoon in January, when the school can be seen at work. Parents who would like more detailed discussions are invited to make an appointment with the Headteacher. The School Admissions' preference form needs to be filled in and returned to Plumpton Primary School by the start of February.Front of School

Older Children:  Places are available in some year groups and parents of older children are also welcome to attend the Open Afternoon in January to see the school at work or to make an appointment to see the Headteacher.

The school currently welcomes pupils from a wide area.

Where a transfer is being requested from a current primary school parents should discuss their intentions with the existing Headteacher first.
