Highfield Ofsted Short Inspection Report - June 2017
We had a short inspection on June 28th 2017 and the school was judged as continuing to be Good.
We have much to celebrate at Highfield:
Pupils enjoy coming to school and make good progress due to its caring and purposeful ethos. Parents are overwhelmingly positive about the school and are of the view that their children are safe and well looked after.
Staff morale is high. All know what the school is aiming to achieve and support senior leaders and governors in their ambitions. Staff are proud to work at Highfield Primary School, which they say, quite correctly, has sustained and extended the strengths identified at the previous inspection.
Highly effective teaching in the early years, notably in phonics, has raised outcomes, which have been well above average for several years.
Pupils know how to improve their learning because they take note of the useful advice provided by their teachers.
... safeguarding procedures are robust.
