Head of School's Welcome
Highlees Primary School is at the heart of the community. We are dedicated to improving the life chances of all our children by unlocking their full potential. Our children are nurtured in a safe and secure environment where they can all grow into confident, resilient and responsible individuals, prepared for the next stage of their learning journey and for life in modern Britain.
We are committed to raising attainment in English and Maths, improving outcomes for ALL pupils by providing them with a range of high quality learning experiences through an inspiring, broad and engaging curriculum. We want our children to love coming to school, be active learners who are curious, and enjoy and achieve in all aspects of their learning.
This year we are focused on developing reading and writing across school through the implementation of Success For All. We believe reading to be the foundations to academic success; we want all our children to develop great reading skills and a passion for reading.
We work hard to involve families in all aspects of life within the school and are proud of our community work. We recognise our cultural diversity that makes up our school community, seeing it as a strength, which we celebrate at every opportunity.
We are ambitious for our children and our school; we have big ideas and set no limits on what our children can aspire to and achieve by ‘Bringing Out The Best’ in them all.
I look forward to welcoming you to our school and happy to answer any questions you have.
Mrs Jo Stroud
Head of School
