Starting School – September 2018

Thank you for choosing South Bersted Primary School for your child, we look forward to welcoming you in September. You will soon receive a pack which will include some forms which must completed and returned to us. Also included in the pack is a welcome letter which gives detailed information regarding welcome sessions and final arrangements for starting in September.

There will be a ‘New Parents Afternoon’ on Wednesday 27th June, from 2.00 – 3.00pm, during which you will have an opportunity to ask any further questions you may have. In the meantime, please find below the West Sussex County Council Information for Parents – Starting School September 2018 leaflet.

We look forward to welcoming you and your child to our school.

‘At the heart of the school’s highly positive and nurturing ethos is a commitment that all pupils have an equal opportunity to achieve success’

‘The school’s work to promote pupils’ personal development and welfare is outstanding’

‘Relationships between teachers and pupils are excellent and, as a result, pupils work hard, are willing to take risks and want to do well’


It is my pleasure to welcome you to the South Bersted website. I hope it goes some way towards informing you about the school.

Our primary aim is to create a vibrant, stimulating, happy place where all pupils become highly motivated confident learners. We want our children to enjoy making new discoveries, to become secure enough to take risks in their learning, and we will ensure that their potential in all areas of school life is continually developed. At our school, we aim to accomplish this for all children within a caring, Christian ethos.

We set high standards both for the children and ourselves and work hard so that these can be achieved. We believe that South Bersted is a great place to be, so please take the opportunity to come and see for yourself, as we are sure you will share our enthusiasm.

We look forward to meeting you.

Mr Chris Kronda
