Aims and Ethos


Our school motto is CARE - the initial letters stand for:

 Consideration              Aspiration                   Responsibility                Enjoyment


We want to ensure that at Highfield we truly CARE about the education and welfare of all pupils and the community as a whole.


Consideration – we expect to see people being thoughtful and helpful; people who think about other people's feelings; people who respect different points of view; people who respect our diverse community; people who make us feel welcome and included.


Aspiration – we expect to see people who are determined to do well; people who want to improve; people who are resilient and don't give up; people who are problem solvers and critical thinkers; people who know their aims, goals and targets.


Responsibility – we expect to see people taking responsibility for their learning and behaviour; people who can organise themselves; people who can look after other people and school property; people who have jobs and are reliable.


Enjoyment – We expect to see people who enjoy each others company; people who enjoy being in school; people who enjoy learning; people who have fun. Enjoyment is important because happy children do (learn) well.



At Highfield, we ensure that the fundamental British Values are introduced, discussed and lived out through the ethos and work of the school. For more information, and to see our British Values Statement please look under 'More' - 'Curriculum' - 'SMSC and British Values'
