Welcome to our school

We are a small, rural primary school set in the heart of a thriving community, with magnificent views from the school grounds over the South Downs, just two miles away. 

At Plumpton Primary School we believe that every child is entitled to enjoy their childhood. They should be valued for their individuality, culture and heritage. We provide an environment which is caring, stimulating and challenging.

We hope our website gives you a taste of our school. Visits to Plumpton Primary School are always welcome, please contact Chris Hotham, Executive Head Teacher, to arrange one.


In January we set up a camera in a bird box outside Oak Class. Here is the footage from our birdbox so far. If you look closely you will notice that the box has been visited by two different kinds of birds. Can you name them? 

Hopefully we'll have eggs and chicks in the coming months! Fingers crossed!

We are very grateful to William Murphy from Yr.5 for providing the camera. He raised the money by doing a sponsored cycle to Paris!
