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.

Rockmount raise over £2,000 for the NSPCC!
The NSPCC came in to Rockmount last month to tell the children about the vital work they do to help thousands of children who need help due to abuse which they sadly receive. We were asked if we could help raise money for the NSPCC to continue their valued work. This involved a sponsored event which took place during PE lessons. Every class participated and all did different events from Danceathons to running to skipping. We were amazed at how generous everyone has been and proudly announce that we raised a staggering £2,245.64 with money still coming in. We would like to thank all children for participating and for the parents and carers who sponsored them. Well done everyone!
Outdoor Classroom Day
Over the last year, our playground has been transformed into a rich learning environment. We have a pond full of interesting wild life, which has been identified and recorded by our Year 4 children. An amphitheatre with Greek style rocks, is the perfect place for poetry recitation, talks and drama. With a range of different habitats for minibeasts, film makers have many back drops to choose from. All of this was taken full advantage during 'Outdoor Classroom Day'. Science, Maths, Literacy, History and PE were just some of the lessons held out in the fresh air, within the wild life of our school grounds.
