Federation Vision Statement
Welcome to Highlees and Eyrescroft Federation. Working in partnership, Highlees and Eyrescroft primary schools are able to build on and maximise the strengths of both schools, ensure equity whilst maintaining the unique personalities that each school has to offer.
Both Academies are proud members of the Elliot Foundation and together we are committed to working with children, families and the local community. We pride ourselves on supporting and inspiring children to be successful in their learning, confident individuals and responsible citizens, whilst striving to improve life chances for every child to prepare them for life in Peterborough, modern Britain and the world.
This year, both schools continue to focus on improving outcomes for children whilst ensuring they have access to a purposeful learning experience where acquisition of knowledge and skills are at the heart. We aim to achieve this by developing; the quality of learning in each classroom and leadership at all levels.
The focus on key skills in English and Maths are a priority as so many of our children have English as an additional language. The continued support from the Elliot Foundation Academy Trust and local partners are supporting both schools to improve standards and see an improvement in the published school data at the end of the year.
Both Highlees and Eyrescroft are fortunate to have a dedicated team of staff who are enthusiastic about, and committed to the children in their school. Both schools have high aspirations and expectations of every child. We recognise that our children get one chance for an education and we are determined to ensure the education they receive makes the positive impact that is needed.
I would be delighted to welcome you to visit Highlees and Eyrescroft and will happily answer any questions personally.
Mrs Emma Ward
