Headteacher’s Welcome

Welcome to High Hurstwood Church of England Primary School's website.

We are a small and thriving rural school with just over 100 pupils, set in the village community of High Hurstwood.  Many parents from the surrounding villages, Crowborough and Uckfield 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.

We believe that every child is given the opportunity to flourish to achieve their potential. We give children a broad curriculum with exciting activities that provide memorable experiences. This is based on 'Life in all its fullness' (John 10:10 ). 

We work in partnership with parents/carers and the wider community to ensure the success of all of our children. We believe that children deserve the best possible chances in life and that they learn best when there are strong links between home and school. Our School motto encompasses these points: BelongEnjoy and Excel.

We are a friendly, caring school with high expectations for all our pupils. Our children are encouraged to explore, discover and question through a range of exciting learning opportunities both within and outside the classroom. This is underpinned by our school values of Belief, Curosity, Kindness and Resilience

I hope you enjoy finding out more about our school by browsing our website. School visits are encouraged and are welcomed; we would be delighted to show you around our wonderful school. Please contact the School Office to make an appointment.

    New Curriculum Information on our school website!
    Dear Parents and Carers, The teaching staff have been working very hard on 'Subject Intent Statements' to provide you with an overview of what we want the children to achieve at High Hurstwood CEP school. We are still finalising some of these documents but there are plenty on the website for you to start looking at! We are hoping you will find these both interesting and helpful. The documents can be found in the Curriculum area. Do let us know what you think! Best wishes Jane Cook

    Skipping Workshop - this Friday!
    Dear Parents and Carers We are delighted to let you know that Dan the Skipping man will be returning this Friday, 11th June for another skipping workshop to build on the skills that the children learnt last term. Each class will have its own age specific session. This is being fully funded by the school's PE/Sports budget. Please could you ensure that your children come into school wearing their PE kit and trainers (or plimsolls). Please also ensure that sunscreen has been applied before school and that they have a water bottle and sun hat to wear. There will be an opportunity to buy skipping ropes at the end of the day using cash only (no cards). We would ask that children keep these skipping ropes at home as we have already purchased lots of ropes for playtime use. We are looking forward to another brilliant day of skipping! Best wishes Jane Cook

    What a Wonderful Week!
    Dear Parents and Carers I just wanted to say a big thank you to everyone, staff, parents and children, for helping this first full week back at school to go so smoothly. It has been wonderful to see all the children, and to see how much they have grown since Christmas! The children have all had a really enjoyable time this week, catching up with their friends, and settling back into the classroom routines. I really couldn’t be prouder of them all! It has also been lovely to see all of you at the gate before and after school. Let’s hope that this is the beginning of a return to stability and normal life for us all. I am very mindful of the fact that our youngest children will struggle to remember ‘life before lockdown’ but hopefully this return to school will ensure that we can help them to look ahead and settle back into the normal routines at home and at school. All we need now is some better weather! I hope everyone has an enjoyable weekend, and a relaxing Mothering Sunday. Best wishes Jane Cook

    We can't wait to see you all!
    Dear Parents and Carers, I hope that all the children are getting ready for bed, and that the younger ones are tucked up in bed already! They need to be up nice and early tomorrow ready for the return to school. I suspect that there will be mixed emotions in the morning (amongst parents and children!) but I'm sure that we will all be glad to take this next step towards something that is nearer to 'normal'! It may be the 'new normal' but it's a step in the right direction. Please be assured that we will be helping each and every child to settle back into school as quickly as possible, and will do our utmost to alleviate any anxiety the children may be feeling. I know the children will be so pleased to see all their friends again, and will probably be chatting away with each other all day long! We really can't wait to see you all in the morning. Don't forget to set your alarm clocks! Jane Cook
