We are delighted to be coming back to school on Monday 7th September after what can only be described as the most unusual school year in modern times! Covid 19 has brought changes to our lifes that none of us could have anticipated and we now move forward in this “new normal” eager for the children to re-experience all that this wonderful school offers them!
We have carefully risk assessed for our return and the teachers enjoyed sharing this with you on our very first googlemeet today! We would ask that you help us to keep your children safe by following the guidance that has been shared with you so that we can have a successful start again. Please also bear with us if things have to be reviewed quickly and ensure that you look out for communications via our primary portal – Parentmail. In this way, you can ensure that you receive the information that we share.
At Highfield, we have children at the heart of everything we do. We employ staff who believe that they are role models that can make a difference in educating the whole child, alongside parents as partners. We want their time at Highfield to be positive and full of memorable learning. Promoting the skills of lifelong learning means that children leave us as rounded learners that are resilient, reflective, can ask good questions and work well both independently and in teams.
We may not always get everything right so we value any feedback to improve the experiences of the children and wider community. We are also pleased to hear when things are going well as this helps us to reflect on what is working well in order to achieve our overarching aim:
“For children to look back on their years and say that Highfield was a great place for them!”
This is what we want our legacy to be and working closely with parents, the church, governors and the wider community is a crucial part of achieving this together. We are proud of our school and look forward to you and your child becoming part of our school community.
It is my privilege and pleasure this year to be leading a team of outstanding staff and to encourage and enjoy seeing your children thrive at this exceptional school.
