About Hawkes Farm Academy
Hawkes Farm Academy
Hawkes Farm is a popular two form primary school in Hailsham, East Sussex. At Hawkes Farm, part of STEP Academy Trust, we are proud of what we are building for our children. We passionately believe that an outstanding education is one of the most precious gifts a child can receive and staff work tirelessly to ensure that is what they receive.
Underpinning all we do is a belief that every moment a child is in school must be used effectively — if time is wasted, it is lost forever and cannot be given back. Therefore we structure our systems and procedures to ensure that we use every minute of every day effectively.
We are developing an exciting curriculum that embraces the range of our pupils’ backgrounds and cultures, whilst always holding at its core the imperatives of reading, writing, speaking and listening and having confidence and a deep understanding of mathematics.
We also work with urgency to support our pupils in becoming highly effective and successful members of society by developing an environment that is underpinned with the core values that our pupils will need to achieve their full potential in life.
Hawkes Farm has a large site with a playing field, two playgrounds and a wildlife garden. We are also fortunate to have a thriving Parent/Teacher Association called ‘Friends of Hawkes Farm’ who put on many exciting events throughout the year.
Hawkes Farm is a wonderful school with that real ‘community’ feeling, where the success of every child matters. Indeed, it is the children who make our Academy such a special place.
A UNICEF Rights Respecting School
We provide an environment where pupils feel safe, valuable and respected. We are a Rights Respecting School and create many opportunities for them to take leading roles throughout the school. This means our pupils become very confident and self-assured individuals.
