‘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.


The Home Learning pages can be accessed via the link above, where you will find activities for each year group that you can complete at home.

Please remember to keep on sending in your photos and videos so that we can see all that the children are getting up to. Click here to do so.

Prayer for the Week

Father, you are my hope, the one who shelters me and I can put my confidence in you. You will rescue me from every hidden trap of the enemy and will keep me safe from all illness and disease. You are a shield keeping me from harm. Your massive arms are wrapped around me, protecting me. Thank you that I never need to worry during the day or at night. You send your angels to protect me whether I go, defending me from all harm and keeping me from stumbling. Father, thank you that you hear me every time I pray to you and that I have your presence with me wherever I go. Amen

Proud to be Cross in Hand

We are so proud of the Ofsted report that we have just received in which we have been graded as being 'Good' with the potential to soon be 'Outstanding'...

During our previous inspection, we were graded as a ‘Good’ school and, as our results have been good since then, we had a one day inspection. If the one day inspection finds that you are still good, Ofsted leave it at that. However, if they think that you have improved, and that the school might actually be ‘Outstanding’ now, they will come back within a year to carry out a deeper, two-day inspection where they look even more closely at the school. We are thoroughly pleased that the inspector has decided we have lots of outstanding qualities and, therefore, we will be having a two-day inspection at Cross in Hand within the next year. Fantastic!
