Why Cradle Hill?‎ > ‎

A Message from the Head

Welcome to The Cradle Hill Community Primary School Website!

Welcome to our school, a school where learning comes first. Situated in the north of Seaford, we are a growing primary school catering for children between the ages of 4 and 11. All our Infant year groups are three form and our Juniors are two form. We currently have 500 children on roll and employ almost 60 staff. Supportive Governors and supportive parents allow us to fulfill the school’s vision.

Our dedicated team of teachers and teaching assistants, together with the non teaching staff work relentlessly to make the school a brilliant place to learn. Whilst we place a huge emphasis on the basic skills of Reading, Writing and Mathematics, we also place a high emphasis on the teaching of the children’s Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) in particular their emotional well being. We believe strongly that happy children learn best and our aim is to work in partnership with families and the community to achieve the very best outcomes for our children.

We believe that children learn in a variety of ways and our cross- curricular approach to teaching and learning, together with the extended curriculum of trips and visitors, enhances the children’s learning experiences.

As you look through the web site and read our prospectus and Ofsted report, you will notice that we maintain the highest standards whilst allowing children to be creative, have fun and live their childhood to the full.

Our School Rules; Be Kind, Be Safe, Be Healthy and Be Honest our embedded across our school and we all strive to achieve the school vision, providing children with the equipment and skills necessary to lead a safe and healthy life, one which allows them to make correct and informed decisions and empowering them to take responsibility for their own learning and play a positive role in the community.

What makes our school different to the rest? The sense of teamwork, communication and a desire to be at Cradle Hill Community Primary School is what makes us unique. We all work at the school because we want the best for our children and our community. We hope you will come and visit us to see what makes our school a special place to be.

Please contact us to arrange a visit where you will always receive a warm and caring welcome.
