Headteacher’s Welcome

Welcome to the Highwood Primary School website.

We are ambitious about every child in our care, and we recognise that it takes an entire community to educate and nurture a child. Our Parents Association called Friends of Highwood, the Governors, the school team are respectful and work together for the children and their families. We teach all to value different communities, different religions and to understand people’s lifestyles and background.

Our aim to raise standards is through promoting a school ethos which is underpinned by a values led approach. These values support the development of the whole child as a reflective learner within a calm, caring, happy and purposeful atmosphere. We strive to develop confident young people who want to learn and achieve their best. Our curriculum inspires and enthuses. This results in emotionally literate, knowledgeable, resilient children who are enthusiastic lifelong learners.

Our vision for Highwood Primary and those that serve is simple:

“Promoting Resilience, Achieving Potential”

Our core values help us to achieve this vision through demonstrating:


At Highwood Primary School we implement the Golden Rules as advocated by Jenny Mosley. By working together, we nurture every child to leave our school being the best possible version of themselves.

  • Do be gentle, don’t hurt anyone.
  • Do be kind and helpful, don’t hurt anyone’s feelings.
  • Do be honest, don’t cover up the truth.
  • Do work hard, don’t waste time.
  • Do look after property, don’t waste or damage things.
  • Do listen to others, don’t interrupt.

On behalf of the school team, we look forward to meeting you and your family.

Mrs Bindu Rai
