Starting School

Is Singleton my local school?

Our school serves a large rural area, which includes the villages of Singleton, East Dean and Charlton.  There is a  bus which transports some children to and from school each day.

Do you take children from outside your area?

Yes.  Whilst many of our  children at the school live in Singleton, East Dean and Charlton,  the remaining children travel from Lavant, Chichester, Bognor and beyond.

Can I come and look around the school?

We would love you to.  Please ring the school to make an appointment. Also look out for our Open Days, which run in the Autumn Term and will give you a chance to meet members of our Governing Body too.

Contact: 01243 811679  or email   

When can my child start school?

Children in West Sussex may start school at the beginning of the school year, in which they reach their fifth birthday.  Admission to school is co-coordinated by the West Sussex County Council Admissions Team.

My child isn’t due to start school for a few years: can I put his/her name on the waiting list?

In the September before your child is due to start school you will be sent information explaining the process.  If you do not receive this information you should contact the West Sussex County Council Admission Team.

We’ve recently moved into the area and have a school age child.  Is there space at your school?

Please contact the school office and we will be able to tell you whether there is a space in your child’s year group.
