We are looking forward to welcoming prospective parents to our open days next week on Tuesday 20th November at 7.00pm and Wednesday 21st November at 9.30am.

Please be aware that due to the closure of the High Street there is NO PARKING in Sheepsetting Lane. We apologise for any inconvenience this causes. You will need to park either in the Mill Road car park (2 minute walk) or in the Co-op car park (5 minute walk). The Co-op has kindly given permission for our parents and visitors to park there. We look forward to seeing you on the 20th or 21st November. For your information, the Open Morning on the 21st will start with a Forest School session so bring wellies!

This promotional video shows you how great life is at our school. We offer great facilities, including our own school swimming pool, outdoor gym and wrap-around care from 7:15am to 6pm. We provide exciting learning opportunities and a range of outdoor experiences - including Forest School - in a caring, nurturing environment.

‘With faith in our future, we learn hand in hand.’

Cross in Hand is a very happy and welcoming school with a team of staff that put their heart and soul into nurturing and inspiring the children. We strive to provide the best learning experience possible for all of our children. We hope this website allows you to begin to experience the enjoyment of learning within our school and the team ethos that surrounds it. Whilst we are immensely proud of our school, we still continually look for ways to improve and take Cross in Hand forwards. As we work together as a community, we know there is no limit to what we can all achieve.

Greek Busts

As part of their topic on Ancient Greece, Year 5 and 6 have designed and sculpted their own Greek busts, using clay. The children learned how to form the basic shape before creating the facial features using different shaped clay tools and their fingers.

Please support our community funding project to help get more children and adults swimming in Heathfield!

We have an outdoor swimming pool at our school, which is very lucky as there are no public swimming pools in Heathfield or surrounding area. Swimming is included in the national curriculum for primary schools but unfortunately the reality is that with the financial pressure experienced by most schools, this is a part of the curriculum which is reduced to the bare minimum for some schools.

Please help us to open our school swimming pool up to the wider community - including after school swimming school for children and adults - by voting for us in the Aviva Community Fund. It only takes a few minutes and your 10 free votes could help to secure £25,000 funding to open our swimming pool to the wider community.

You can also support this project by donating on our Crowdfunding page.

Sporting Success!

Well done to our boys and girls football teams who took part in the HASP football tournament at Heathfield Community College. Although the competition was tough, all the children played brilliantly with the boys winning their tournament while the girls came third overall. The boys now progress onto the North Wealden round, which takes place in Uckfield.

Kingswood Residential

Another Kingswood experience came around once again and Year 6 headed off to Ashford for an exciting week of activities. From zip wiring and climbing, to taking a leap of faith, the children all really pushed and challenged themselves during the week. The famous air horn rang out loud around the dormitory each morning, ensuring the children were fully awake for the adventures of the day ahead - check out the great reactions!

A big 'Thank you' to all the staff who gave their time to make this adventure possible for the children.
