Welcome to Highover J.M.I. and Nursery.
The Website aims to provide much of the information that you will need about our school. No booklet, brochure or website, no matter how full, will ever substitute for meeting the people who will be working with your child during their time in Primary education.

At Highover, we strongly believe in the importance of developing a strong partnership between home and school. This is essential if the children are to meet their full potential and grow as individuals.
Do take the time to come in and meet us. I hold a coffee morning on the first Thursday of every month at 9 am in the staffroom. I would love to see you there to celebrate our successes and work together to make the school even better!
I hope you enjoy finding out more about us as you tour our site.

  • Safer Internet Day, Tuesday 10th February 2015 Highover have taken part in Safer Internet Day today. Children have completed activities about keeping safe online in a variety of contexts. Randomly chosen children took part in a whole school conversation with Mr.M, our ITC Leader talking about the great ways in which the internet helps us when we use it responsibly. They came up with tips which have been tweeted to our global community using the hastags #SID2015 and #HJMI_SID2015. Click on the links to view them.
