Welcome to Highley Community Primary School
I am delighted to introduce you to the website. Our school team is determined to ensure that each child develops a passion for learning in a warm and nurturing environment.
We hope that you find this website useful and you get an insight into life at our wonderful school - our aim is to give you as much information as possible about school life, the staff and the many activities that our children enjoy through our varied curriculum and our extra-curricular activities.
Our key values have recently been revised to reflect the values that the whole school community feels are important for our children and our aspirations for the people they will become. These values are 'respect', 'resilience' and 'relationships' - our '3 Rs':
That children show 'respect' to each other, to adults and that we are all considerate of people's feelings
That we strive to have positive 'relationships'; that everybody within our school community works as part of a team to support and care for each other
That children are learners who show 'resilience', that challenge themselves to keep improving and be the best they can possibly be
Staff are centred on building children’s resilience so that they can overcome barriers to learning and thrive.
Highley is a happy school where we aim to maximise each learning opportunity and celebrate children’s successes every step of the way. We are the only school in Highley and are very much at the centre of the community. We aim to celebrate our surroundings and we learn about the history of the school and wider local area including the Severn Valley, and also the village’s rich mining heritage. As such, we have a strong curriculum focus on local heritage which we build upon year-on-year.
We operate an ‘open door’ policy at Highley and recognise the importance of communicating with the parents and families of the children in our care. Whilst this website can give you a flavour of our school, there is no substitute for seeing the ‘Highley Community’ in action and meeting our engaged, articulate and independent children. If you are interested in visiting our school, please contact the office – we would welcome any chance to show you what we can offer your child. Whatever your reason for visiting, you will be guaranteed a warm welcome.
Mr Tom Plim
