"I have come so they may have life and have it to the full", John 10:10

We believe that everyone is an individual, we encourage our pupils to reach their full potential in a happy, safe and caring environment. Within our community, we provide a foundation for enthusiastic life long learning, based on Christian values.

Nutley Primary School was built in 1853 as a Voluntary Controlled Church of England School. Set in the beautiful Ashdown Forest, we cater for pupils aged four to eleven years old from Nutley, Uckfield, Crowborough and the surrounding areas.

Together with the Church of St James the Less, Nutley Primary School has been at the heart of Nutley village, Uckfield and Crowborough town communities for over 160 years. We work closely with other local schools as part of the East Sussex Education Improvement Partnerships (EIPs) and are proud to be part of the Uckfield Town Schools Alliance which is part of the Wealden EIP.

The school has a strong Christian ethos, and a link with the church is evident in all it does. Christian symbols are evident throughout the building and displays are regularly linked to stories from the Bible. As a school we promote the values of the Christian faith, however we recognise some of our children come from other religions and cultural backgrounds and we respect their beliefs.
