Information for new parents about hot lunches
Our school caters for children aged 4 to 11 years. We also have a pre-school on site which takes children from two and a half. The majority of children come from our immediate catchment area of Slinfold village although we have taken children from other outlying districts as well.
In the autumn of the year before your child starts school, the Children’s Services Department at West Sussex County Council will prompt you to apply for the school of your choice online. Paper applications are also available for those who do not have access to a computer.
