In December, Holy Cross School received a very positive OFSTED report. "The school is highly prized by parents for the evident care it takes of the pupils and their families. This results in good personal development and well-being of pupils." The full report is available on the Ofsted website.

The Walking Bus is being launched (after some initial delays) during "Walk to school week". Click here to find out more.

The school, in line with the National Curriculum and with the guidance of East Sussex County Council, develops the Curriculum followed by the children.


Children work mostly with their own class teacher and cover the core and foundation subjects of the National Curriculum: Mathematics, English, Science, Technology, History, Geography, Music, Art, P.E. and Games. Much of the work in these subjects is taught through subject lessons but,  where  appropriate,  the   cross-curricular   nature   of

knowledge based on a theme will be stressed. This is particularly true in the early years. Teaching styles are varied and range from whole class lessons through group work to individual assignments, as appropriate to the planned learning objectives.


We operate focus groups every morning whereby children who have a particular need in a subject can be taught either in a small group or individually. We are also able to offer focus group work to children who show a particular gift or talent in a subject.


All pupils enjoy and gain considerably both educationally and socially from first hand experience. In order to provide this, the school undertakes a full and varied programme of outside visits, including residential courses. This year years 5 and 6 pupils were offered a residential experience on the Isle of Wight.


We also invite outside speakers and groups with special experiences to visit the school. We hope that parents will support this aspect of the curriculum with voluntary contributions towards the cost, when invited to do so.


As a Church Aided School we recognise the importance of religious, spiritual and moral education. The cultivation of sound values and judgements, showing care and concern for others and sympathy for those less fortunate than ourselves, is central to the philosophy of the school. We have close links with local churches and the clergy make regular visits to the school. Christian worship is a regular part of school life with daily assemblies and once a term there is an invitation from Holy Cross Church to celebrate an All Age Family Holy Communion Service on Sunday at 9.30 am.
