Welcome to our School Website

WELCOME to our website. At Hawkhurst Church of England Primary School we aim to Extend Horizons for every child. We offer a wide variety of extra – curricular activities and opportunities for children to enjoy. Children matter to us as individuals.

Ofsted graded the behaviour in the school as outstanding:-

“Behaviour is outstanding. Pupils are eager to learn and want to do well. There is a positive climate for learning and pupils work enthusiastically together and respond positively to challenge. Pupils feel safe in school”.

Hawkhurst Church of England Primary School has close links with St Laurence Church. We have five core Christian values, each with an associated Bible story. In school we aim to uphold these values in all that we do. Children are reminded of the meaning of the values and how they are linked to living a good Christian life.

Core Values

In June 2021 we adopted our new values : –

  • Compassion: This fits so well with our Emotional Wellbeing Pathway, with our restorative approach to behaviour and everything we endeavour to do in school.
  • Hope: This ties in with our “Extending Horizons”.
  • Community: We have worked hard over the last few years to make our school a real part of the local community and for parents to feel part of the school too, for example our Family Breakfasts, the Community Breakfast during lockdown, Food for Families and the work we are now doing with the Hands of Hope Community Garden.

You can find much information on the school website but we would also welcome your visit to see the school at work. Please telephone the office to make an appointment.
