"This school continues to be good. There are very high expectations of pupils’ personal responsibility for their own conduct. Pupils meet these expectations, both in the classroom and in their social time."

Singleton CE Primary School is set in a unique beautiful location, freefromnoise, pollution and the danger of main roads and within the newly created South Downs National Park. The number of children on roll is usually less than 60 and this means that staff have a very personal knowledge of every child and there is a real family atmosphere.

The school is a "Voluntary Controlled" School, which means that the Church of England maintains an active interest in the school whilst giving overall control to the Local Authority. Singleton C.E. Primary School has a high reputation for its caring, inclusive family ethos based on Christian values.  
The governors are all actively involved in the school's life. We are also continually grateful for the staunch help given to us by the parents and the wider community.

If you are looking for a small school that has a care and concern for children as individuals together with a strong family ethos, please do not hesitate to get in touch and arrange a visit. We look forward to seeing you.
We hope you will find the information contained in this website both helpful and interesting, giving you a clear insight into school life.
You are welcome to make an appointment to visit us at any time.


If you require any information or have any queries please contact Mrs A. Holt, School Secretary.  







Singleton C.E. Primary School is proud to announce that it has been awarded an outstanding grade by Church of England SIAMS inspectors for the positive impact its Christian ethos has on pupils, following an inspection in January.  

All Church of England schools are inspected every three to five years to evaluate the effectiveness of their Christian approach, and this result represents a further improvement from the previous inspection outcome.  The Diocese of Chichester inspector examined how well the school met the needs of each child, how whole-school worship made an impact on the school community and how effective the school's leadership and management was in enriching its church school status.  In all three areas the school was judged to be outstanding.

She was particularly impressed by the vision of the leadership team, the eagerness of the children to demonstrate Christian values and the caring attitude of staff, saying, “The school’s unequivocal Christian ethos, founded on the love of God and an understanding of the life of Jesus, is underpinned by explicit Christian values weaved seamlessly into the daily life of the school.”  The strength of the whole staff team was celebrated in the report, describing “a collaborative culture that inspires and motivates the teaching team to ensure the school’s Christian character impacts decisively on the development of every child.”

“It is wonderful to receive such a fantastic acknowledgement of the work we have put into creating a school where Christian values are celebrated”, commented Singleton C of E Primary’s head teacher Christopher Todd.  “I would particularly like to thank my wonderful team of staff who are such brilliant role models for our pupils, enabling each and every one of them to become successful human beings.”
