Dear Parents/ Carers
As part of Year 1’s exciting Arts Fortnight we are having a Bollywood Day on Wednesday 5th April.
Children will be taking part in a dance workshop where they will be learning about Indian Dance. The rest of the day will be spent exploring and creating examples of Indian Artwork. We are asking if children could dress up on this day and come in Bollywood themed fancy dress.
We can’t wait to see your outfits!
The Year 1 Staff
Dear Parents/ Carers,
As you are aware, the pupils take books home in order to extend their skills in Reading further. These books come from the school library and are also used for Reading lessons within class.
It is extremely important that when these books are sent home, they are looked after and returned in the same state. Failure to do so, will result in a charge. A charge will be issued if a book is lost or returned damaged.
It is important that we look after all of the school's books as they are used by learners across the school.
Thank you in advance for your support with this.
Assistant Head Teacher
Dear Parents / Carers
I wanted to update you on the current governance of Highfield and changes that are due to take place for September.
The governing body of Highfield was removed following the Ofsted inspection of September 2014 and an Interim Executive Board IEB) was put in its place. When Highfield became an academy and part of the Prince Albert Community Trust (PACT), the governance of the school transferred from the IEB to the PACT Board.
We now believe Highfield School is in a stable enough position to establish its own local governance structure in the form of an Academy Committee. This Academy Committee will operate closer to Highfield School and representatives will be responsible for working with the Senior Leadership Team to ensure that all our pupils receive the best possible education. This will also be an opportunity for parents & members of the wider community to contribute to the life of the school.
If you are interested in becoming an academy representative or you know somebody who may be interested, please contact the school office for a detailed description of the role and responsibilities.
Please note this is not a paid role.
Mr S Gulzar
Chief Executive Officer
Dear Parents/ Carers,
As you are all aware, your child will be taking their SATs tests in a few weeks’ time. They will start on Monday 8th May and finish on Thursday 11th May. It is essential that all children are in school every day and on time. It is also important that the children are going to bed early and having enough sleep and rest.
During SAT’s week (Monday 8th May – Thursday 11th May), we are offering all children in Year 6 a free place in Breakfast Club.
If you would like your child to attend, they will need to arrive at the Main Reception by 8:15am. A member of staff will then escort them to the Breakfast Club in the Infant Hall. At the club they will be provided with a free breakfast. We have a variety of options available, including; porridge, cereal, yoghurt, fruit, toast, beans, egg, fresh juice and milk.
Thank you for your continued support.
