Primary School

A welcoming village school in the of the Rottingdean community

Admissions

Joining us in September 2021

 

Choosing a school for your child is such an important decision, and we are delighted that you are considering us as one of your options. Usually in the Autumn term, we would be promoting our popular school tours, so that you can come and see St Margaret’s in action for yourselves!

 

As you will be aware though, schools have to operate in different ways at present, in line with the current Government guidance. We did not want to stop this giving any interested parents an opportunity to see our fantastic school, so we are proposing to hold small group tours of the school after school on Wednesdays across October and November. 

 

Whilst this will not show you our wonderful children and their learning in action, it should give you a ‘feel’ for our school community and the values that we encompass in all we do. If you would like to sign up for one of these tours please select the date you want, and complete the form giving us a few details. You will receive an email to confirm your place.

 

 

We currently have spaces across some year groups in the school, so if you are looking for a place for your child, please do not hesitate to contact the office to book a tour with the Headteacher.

 

All are welcome into our school community.
