Ninfield C of E Primary School

Diocese of Chichester Academy Trust

Headteacher's Welcome


I am delighted to welcome you to Ninfield CE Primary School.


We are a thriving village school community with happy children, committed staff and supportive families. As members of DCAT (Diocese of Chichester Academy Trust), we benefit from being part of a successful family of local schools. We have close connections with the local church and village community and are proud of our unique school identity.


"The magic of Ninfield School is that you get the community and feel of a village school, with the forward thinking ideas and structure of a large town school, thanks to the new head." (Parent)


We are deeply committed to ensuring that our children are living out our school's vision of 'Growing, Loving, Learning Together' each day so that they can reach their fullest potential. We hold high standards for our children's academic progress, providing the key skills and knowledge needed as the foundation of future learning and success. We have a history of strong educational outcomes - our 2023 end of Key Stage Two statutory assessment results were well-above national average.


"If you want your child to be remembered by name, nurtured and encouraged to thrive both from an academic and well-being sense, then Ninfield is the school for you". (Parent)


We nurture each child's skills and talents as we recognise that every child is special and has their own contribution to make, both in our school and beyond.  Balance is central to our school philosophy; we ensure our children experience an education that is broad and varied, competing in a range of local sporting events, developing self-expression through varied performance opportunities, developing understanding of the natural world as part of Forest School in the nearby Church Woods and experiencing the joy of gardening and growing through regular sessions at the adjoining school allotment.



As a Church of England Primary School, we are committed to embedding Christian values in the ethos of our school, through the relationships we foster and the opportunities we provide for our children to recognise their own unique, God-given talents.

If you have any queries about our school, please do not hesitate to get in touch via the school office.
