Welcome to the school website for Woodingdean Primary School. Our website, along with the school office, is the first stop for anything you may need. I hope you find it of great interest and that it provides you with lots of information and introduces you to the ways in which we work. We are constantly updating and refreshing pages so please check back.

We pride ourselves on being an open, creative and inclusive school. We all work hard, play hard and think our school is a fantastic place to be. If you have any questions, want to find out more or would like a tour please get in touch with Miss Mason at admin@woodingdean.brighton-hove.sch.uk - we would love to meet you and show you around.
