The Windmills Junior School is a three form entry Junior School in the village of Hassocks just outside the South Downs National Park. We are exceptionally proud of our school and our pupils. Our pupils are highly motivated and thrive in our stimulating learning environment. We value the importance of creative learning and working together as a community. We offer a broad and balanced curriculum and provide exciting learning and sporting activities to ensure that the children have a wealth of experiences as they learn and grow.
We have a highly skilled team of teachers, teaching assistants and support staff who are extremely caring and totally committed to children’s learning, happiness and well-being.
We believe that sound values and a positive attitude are crucial in becoming lifelong learners and our expectations of the children are very high. We want our children to love school, love learning and feel proud of their own achievements.
Hopefully you will find all the information that you need on the website, but please feel free to contact the school office on the email, or phone number above with any queries.

Coronavirus - information for families
We wish to clarify for families the Government advice issued on Monday 16th March:
· If any member of a family has symptoms of Coronavirus the whole household should self isolate for 14 days
· Nobody should therefore come in to school for a period of 14 days if any member of their household has symptoms
· The symptoms as described on the NHS website are: a high temperature - over 37.8 degrees / you feel hot to touch on your chest or back
and / or
a new, continuous cough - this means you've started coughing repeatedly
· If in any doubt, we would ask you to please err on the side of caution at this challenging time and follow the guidance to self isolate your whole household.
