Funtington Primary School


Welcome to our school 

A very warm welcome to the Funtington Primary School website.  

We are a small and friendly learning community set in beautiful grounds at the foot of the South Downs National Park. Our caring ethos puts the children at the centre of all we do to ensure we support them to develop academically, socially and emotionally. We have a committed team of staff and governors who are passionate about nurturing each individual through a culture of caring, safety and high expectations so that every child can achieve their best. We place high value on children’s personal development and are constantly seeking to broaden their experiences and teach them skills to keep safe, happy and healthy. Our fantastic parent body actively supports the work of the school through volunteer work and fundraising as well as organizing fantastic events that bring the whole community together.  

Our aim is to build strong relationships with all our children and families to secure a happy learning community that is always ‘Moving Forward, Loving Learning’ 

To learn more about our vision and values, please follow the links. 

We are always happy to meet prospective parents and children, so if you would like to come and see us in action, please contact the school office. 

I look forward to welcoming you to our school.
