Principal's Welcome

On behalf of the parents, staff and students I would like to welcome you to South Downs R-7 and Disability Unit Primary School. Through the hard work and commitment of staff, we aim to provide an educational and social environment that nurtures and challenges each child and encourages them to reach their full potential.

We achieve this through embedding our school values throughout the curriculum.

South Downs PS 3 Values are, Be Kind, Be Safe and Be A Learner.

South Downs has a reputation for excellence in Literacy and particularly providing individual and small group programmes.

This success is built on a school community who value education and creative endeavour.

We look forward to working with you to provide the best possible education for your child in our care.

Governing Council's Welcome

South Downs is very proud of the enormous amount of volunteer work done by the family community.  The students really love seeing their families involved in any aspect of the daily school life.  This can take on many forms, from a formal commitment like Governing Council to helping in the classrooms, library and after school activities.  Please feel free to join us at Governing Council meeting to observe, or participate in, discussions.  We meet three times a term and everyone is welcome.  If you have any questions please feel free to come and have a chat.
