Welcome from the Headteacher

It gives me great pleasure on behalf of the staff, pupils and governors to welcome you to our wonderful school.

We are a warm and welcoming one-form entry primary school, located on the picturesque Shoreham Beach peninsula, between Brighton and Worthing.

Everyone feels safe, included and valued. Kindness, restorative practice and strong relationships underpin everything we do.

At Shoreham Beach Primary, there is a passion and love for learning. Everyone is committed to high expectations and aspirations. Our curriculum is bespoke and ambitious for all. We want every learner to be a critical thinker and greater depth at something. Everybody succeeds, everybody matters. No one gets left behind.

Having high expectations isn't a skill, it is an attitude.

We are very proud of our school.


Key priorities for this academic year

  1. Further developing subject leaders
  2. Raise the quality of teacher's mathematical subject knowledge, of children's mathematical development and of effective mathematical pedagogy
  3. Emphasis across the curriculum on oracy: learners' articulation of ideas, spoken expression and talk about learning
  4. Review of structure and constitution of governing body
  5. Further develop adult-child interactions in early years to extend children's thinking
  6. Clear and tightly moderated routes and pathways to the identification of additional needs
