Welcome to Highfield!
On behalf of the staff and governors I am delighted to welcome you to our school.
Highfield is a happy school, where children learn in a caring environment and all are valued.
We aim to develop creative approaches to learning where children are engaged, excited and enthused about what they are doing in school. We teach children to aim high and develop their individual skills and talents so that each child achieves their potential.
We want to instil in children a love of learning for its own sake and help them become confident, self-disciplined individuals capable of engaging in a lifelong process of learning.
Our motto at Highfield is C.A.R.E. and underpins our aims and what we believe is important.
Consideration, Aspiration, Responsibility and Enjoyment
Consideration – we expect to see people being thoughtful and helpful; people who think about others' 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 have high expectation of themselves and others; 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's and school property; people who have jobs and are reliable.
Enjoyment – We expect to see people who enjoy each other’s company; people who enjoy being in school; people who enjoy learning; people who have fun. Enjoyment is important because happy children do (learn) well.
I hope you find the information on our website a helpful insight into the life and work of our school.
