‘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.

Newhaven Fort

As part of their learning about World War II, Year 6 visited Newhaven Fort to discover more about this important part of British history. During the trip, the children carried out a hands-on workshop with artefacts from the war and also experienced an air raid. A big thank you to Mr Nickolls for organising the trip and to all the adults who supported the visit.

Digital Leaders!

Last term, children In Year 6 were invited to apply for the position of Digital Leader, a very important role that will see children promoting the safe use of technology in school as well as looking at ways to use a range of technology across the curriculum. Many children applied and were interviewed for the role – unfortunately, places were limited and we could only choose 10. Congratulations to those who were successful and are now completing their Digital Leader training.

This term the Digital Leaders will get stuck into their new role, helping pupils and staff members to use a range of devices and software. They are currently being trained in using a variety of apps on the iPad and seeing how they can help improve the use of technology across the school to enhance the children’s learning – you can find out more about the team on our Digital Leader display board in school.

We would like to congratulate them on their new role and are sure they will do a very great job!

Keep an eye out here to find out what they have been getting up to!

Our Promotional Video

Welcome to Cross in Hand Primary school. This engaging 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 in a caring and nurturing environment.

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.
