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.

Reception visit the London Aquarium
The children in Reception are currently learning all about water. On Tuesday 9th June, the children were lucky enough to visit the Sea Life, London Aquarium. All classes had a fantastic time and particularly loved the sharks, stingrays and seahorses. On return to school the children enjoyed writing and drawing about their favourite animals from their visit.
Year 1 visit ZSL London Zoo
Year 1 had a brilliant day at London Zoo. They had lunch as soon as they arrived and then began to explore! The children’s particular highlights were the butterfly paradise and watching the penguin show. Some animals such as the lemurs were incredibly tame and unfazed by close proximity to children while others such as the tiger, sloth and pygmy hippo just slept their way through the day! The children wrote about the trip the following day. Tim in Crystal Class wrote “I saw a humungous gorilla that was climbing and I liked the spooky bats – there were twenty seven!”
A fond farewell to Val
She has helped generations of children across the road safely and now, after 42 years of outdoor school patrol in all weathers, Val is storing away her lollipop stick . Pupils and staff at Rockmount are now saying a fond farewell to Val who has decided to retire. We would like to thank Val for all her hard work and devoted service and wish her the very best.
