Welcome to our School
Polegate School is a very happy and welcoming school with a staff team that is fantastic, nurturing and inspirational. We want to provide the best learning experience possible. Whilst we are immensely proud of our school we are not complacent as we continually look for ways to improve. We hope this website captures the magic of the school.
Our vision statement is simply: ‘Learning without Limits.’
The shared aim is to provide an outstanding education for children of all abilities. Every opportunity is offered to inspire children in their learning. We want every child to exceed expectations and actively encourage close co-operation between home and school.
‘Our aim is to make learning irresistible for all children at Polegate School. We want pupils to develop a lifelong love of learning, enquiring minds and a creative approach to solving problems.’

Proposed expansion of Polegate School
As a result of new housing developments in the Polegate area, demand for school places has increased in recent years. You will be aware that Polegate School admitted 90 children in September 2016 and will do so again this September.
The school’s current published admission number of 60 provides limited scope to meet parental preference and, therefore, East Sussex County Council would like to expand the school to provide more places for local children. If the proposal goes ahead the school would grow from 420 places to 630 places, increasing the published admission number from 60 to 90 with effect from 1 September 2019. Additional accommodation would be provided to enable the school to expand.
A four week consultation on the proposal will begin on Friday 23 June and run until Friday 21 July. The consultation will go live on the East Sussex County Council website on 23 June and can be viewed by following the link below:
I would encourage you to give your views on the proposal.
