Slinfold CE Primary School and Pre-School

Caring for each other, learning from each other, achieving with each other…guided by God


As the recently appointed Headteacher at Slinfold CE Primary School it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our website. I hope that you find all of the information that you are looking for but if you require any help then please do contact us and we will be happy to assist you and answer any questions you may have.


Our school is a calm and nurturing place, where children enjoy learning and feel part of our special community. The school has been an integral part of the village since 1849 and we enjoy strong links with St Peter's, our neighbouring church.


At Slinfold, we passionately believe in providing our children with a memorable and exciting 7 years of primary education. We have high expectations for the behaviour, personal development and academic attainment of our children and we place great emphasis on the importance of working in partnership with our parents.


Our curriculum is exciting and engaging, with enrichment opportunities introduced to bring the learning to life. Forest School is a key part of our curriculum and every child within the school gets to experience this provision each year.


We have 5 mixed-age classes, covering the 7 years of primary education, and also have a successful Pre-School which many of our children have attended. Many families who join us are looking for a small nurturing environment for their children which is different to what larger schools are able to provide. We currently have spaces available in most year groups and would love to welcome you and your children into our kind and nurturing community.


Our Christian values are lived and breathed on a daily basis and they provide a framework for how we interact with different members of our community. These 4 core values are 'Responsibility', 'Respect', ‘Compassion’ and 'Courage'.


To find out more about our delightful village school, please watch our video, look around our website and then contact us and we will happily answer any questions you may have. I am always happy to show interested parents around our school so that you can fall in love with it in the same way that I have! I look forward to welcoming you to Slinfold so that you can see for yourselves what makes our setting such a special place to learn and to work.



Best wishes,


Chris Jowett
