Welcome to Highfield J&I School

hos

It is my pleasure to welcome you to Highfield School via our school website. It is a privilege to lead a team of talented and hardworking staff and nearly 880 fantastic children.

 I hope that the information you find answers the questions you may have, be that as a current parent; as a parent with a child who is about to embark upon their learning journey with us; as someone who is keen to join our team or as a potential visitor to our school.

Highfield is a warm, friendly and inviting school that places the children at the heart of everything we do – the decisions that we make are always in the best interests of the children who come here. We want all of our children, to feel happy and cared for so that they are able to fulfil their individual potential. We are keen to develop a love of learning and ignite a passion in areas that children can pursue in school and in later life. We are a diverse community and are passionate about valuing and celebrating the different cultures, faiths and backgrounds of everyone here.

Our school has 6 values that we thread through our curriculum: Respect, Equality, Inspiration, Determination, Honesty and Friendship. They were chosen by our school community and we strongly believe that these values will lead our children to be successful in whatever they do – in school and in the years ahead.

Not only do we strive to support, nurture and develop our children but we ensure that the same happens for staff. We have a proven track record of developing staff at all levels: we have the Early Career Development Quality Mark in recognition of the work that we do with our NQTs and RQTs. We are always happy to welcome new people into our team and are always excited by the knowledge, skills and experiences that they can bring to Highfield to help us on our journey. 

As a large team of staff, we work incredibly hard at our school and across our Trust to ensure that we provide the best possible opportunities for our children. We strongly believe and value the relationship that we have with parents and the community and appreciate the positive impact that the school and partnership has on the children. We are always happy to hear your thoughts, questions and feedback so feel free to contact us via the school website or by coming in to see us.

I look forward to working with you.

Best Wishes
Mr. Knibbs
