Welcome to High Hurstwood CE Primary School.

High Hurstwood Church of England Primary School is a small and thriving rural school with just over 100 pupils, set in the village community of High Hurstwood.  Many parents from Crowborough, Uckfield and the surrounding villages send their children to us because of our high expectations and standards, combined with our welcoming family atmosphere, reflecting Christian values, where all members of the school community know one another by name.

    Back to School!
    Dear Parents We are very much looking forward to welcoming all the children back in school very soon! If you haven't already done so, please do complete the well-being survey that we sent out in July. This will give us valuable information to enable us to best support your child's transition back to full-time education. We are very much hoping to have this information from you prior to the parent-teacher transition meetings. So please do complete the survey by the end of the day tomorrow/Wednesday. Parent-teacher transition meetings: Please note that in order to minimise the risk of possible contact/contagion we are asking that one parent only attends these meetings and that you do not bring in your child's home learning books. Much as we would like to see their completed work we need to be cautious as we start to re-open the school to all children. Your child can attend with you but if possible without other siblings. Your child will have the opportunity to look around the classroom while you are talking to their teacher. If the weather is favourable we may decide to hold these meetings outdoors on the front terrace and lower playground. However, we would ask that all parents are wearing a face mask for these appointments, so please do remember to bring one with you. As mentioned previously, we do need to ensure we minimise any risk of contagion. The last thing we want is for staff to be unwell and have to be absent from school when your children return to the classrooms next week. Best wishes Jane Cook

    A Message for the Friends of High Hurstwood
    Sponsored Sporting Challenge & Home Bake Sale - 18th - 19th July, 2020 As we are unable to hold our annual 'Old Skool Sports Day' event, The Friends of High Hurstwood would like to invite you to join in a weekend of fund raising through a Sponsored Sporting Challenge or a Home Bake Sale. You can decide on what your challenge will be but having spoken with a few children a few plans that we know of are a 5k run, a 20k cycle, a certain number of keepie-uppies, catches from a rebound net, a number of skips with a rope and trampoline bounces. If sport is not your thing, perhaps you could hold a home bake sale and either bake to order or visit family and friends (from a safe distance) offering some delicious treats. We will be forwarding a link to a combined Just Giving page, so once you have decided on your challenge, you can pass on the link to ask if family and friends could kindly sponsor you. All the funds will be collected together and will go towards much needed resources at school which are required now, even more than ever. This is a completely voluntary challenge so please do not feel that you have to do something but the more who join in, the more funds we can raise. You could design your own posters to advertise what you will be doing or send an email to your family and friends. As soon as we have received the link we shall pass it on and you will be able to forward it so that people know where they can go to donate. You could always do the challenge live via the internet or bake cakes for socially distanced spectators to buy! We hope that you are all well and managing in these extraordinary times. We miss everyone and look forward to getting together in person as soon as we can. If you have any questions please feel free to email friendshighhurstwood@gmail.com . Remember, anything goes and if it's a challenge that you find fun, that's perfect! (Photos of events, that you are happy to share, would be wonderful to see). Best wishes from The Friends of High Hurstwood
