21st Century SkillsTeaching and learning through talk

South Malling is a Voice 21 Oracy school and we place the spoken word at the heart of our curriculum. In every subject and in every year, our focus on developing children's language skills enables our pupils to articulate their ideas, ask curious questions and engage actively with their learning. Over the course of their journey with us, your child will grow into an independent, resilient and reflective learner who is able to take ownership of their own education and develop the skills needed to succeed in the 21st century. As a school family, our motto of "reach for the stars" reminds us all to work hard to be the best we can be.

A Chance to Thrive Exploring Education Together

Whether dipping for minibeasts in our pond, coding games in our computer suite, or performing music and drama on stage, your child will have a wealth of opportunities to develop their passions and explore new areas of interest. Our amazing reception garden and spacious field with play-trail, orchard and raised beds - alongside our location at the foot of the South Downs in Lewes - allow children to explore nature and learn to care for the world around them. They will participate in a wide range of sport and exercise, learning to keep themselves physically and mentally healthy; while they will also build relationships based on respect, compassion and equality. As our most recent Ofsted report highlighted, relationships are a real strength of our school.
