Rockmount is a happy, friendly school situated very close to the vibrant Crystal Palace triangle.
From the first day a child attends, our priority is to provide a safe, caring and stimulating environment for them to learn and grow.
With high expectations of all our children, we are committed to fulfilling our motto, "All Can Achieve". This is the central premise of all that happens in our school.
We also encourage close links between home and school so that parents and carers can be actively involved in their child’s education. We often ask for parents' views because we believe they are important in helping to shape the future development of the school.
This website provides a wealth of information about how Rockmount is organised. Of course our school is much more than this. I would encourage you to come and visit us and to see Rockmount for yourself. Details about how to get in touch are on our contact page.
Year 3 had a very exciting visit to Crystal Palace Park last week as part of their Adventure Learning curriculum. They collected kindling to build a camp fire and toasted marshmallows and hot cross buns.
We are very pleased to announce that Rockmount has been awarded the Gold Healthy Schools London Award! Healthy Schools London were very impressed with our hard work to improve our school lunch experience.
As a gold Travel school, we have over 60 children cycling and around 25 on scooters every Wednesday. On the last Wednesday of the year we had Wheelie Wednesday Bling your bike. The children decorated their bikes and scooters with tinsel and lights to brighten up the dark winter days.
With flashing lights and reindeer antlers on the handlebars, Rockmount choir cycled through Upper Norwood to Downsview Methodist Pensioners Luncheon Club, where they sang carols.
We were very excited when Jason Puncheon the Crystal Palace footballer, a former pupil of Rockmount, visited recently with the U21 development director, Mark Bright and Pam McRoberts the Palace Ladies' international star. See what happened when Match of the Day came for the afternoon.
Year 2 have had an amazing term learning about India. They had an explosive Indian Experience Day, where they prepared and cooked a range of delicious, healthy dishes including potato curry, pea pilau rice and coconut squares. They also had the opportunity to try Indian dancing and drumming and ended the day with a great show for parents.
