A warm welcome to you from the pupils, staff and Governors of Highfields Primary school. I do hope that you find the information contained in this website informative and useful. It has been recently redesigned and will continue to grow and develop with input from the pupils and the staff so please come back and visit us often.
In order for children to achieve their best, there needs to be a really positive relationship between home and school and consequently parents play a large part in the life of our school and we value their partnership.
Visits to the school are encouraged and we would be delighted to give you a tour and answer any questions you may have. Please contact the school office who will be happy to give you the details of the next available visit.
Highfields Primary School is a happy, caring and friendly two-form entry primary school welcoming approximately 470 children aged from 3 to 11. We have a part-time Nursery (30 places in the morning and 30 places in the afternoon) for children who will have their 4th birthday during the academic year that they start in.
We are very proud of our achievements and were delighted by the comments made by the Ofsted Inspectors in December 2014. The overall findings were that Highfields is a good school.
Our aim is to bring learning alive for the children and to make the curriculum as relevant, exciting and as stimulating as we can make it. We aim to cater for all children’s needs and recognise the fact that children learn best in different ways and at different rates. We value strengths that each child has and develop them, providing support and encouragement along the way.
Whilst we are very proud of our academic achievements and expect high standards of work and behaviour from all of our children, we place equal importance on the development of social, spiritual and emotional skills. We want all of children to grow into responsible, caring citizens and seek to enable them to build relationships with other children, adults and be sensitive to the feelings and needs of others.
