The admissions policy of Rusper Primary School is common to all community primary schools in West Sussex. This policy is outlined in a booklet entitled Information for Parents – Starting School, which is published by the Local Authority and made available to all parents of children eligible to start school.

All requests for places, including those for children with disabilities, should be directed to:

West Sussex Admissions Team

Telephone: 03330 142903


Further details relating to admissions can be found on the West Sussex County Council website and the link below gives details of the admissions criteria.

Priority for admission is given to children living within the designated area, but consideration will also be given to children outside the designated area if there is sufficient accommodation within the school. The current admission number is 15.


Open mornings for prospective new parents for admission in September 2021

Due to the COVID pandemic we will be unable to have open mornings during the Autumn Term.  However, we'd love you to take a 'Rusper Primary Virtual Tour' and a video will be uploaded to our website very soon.  We will also offer 3 live Q&A sessions via zoom.  Details of which will be confirmed and published on our website soon.
