We are independent and confident learners. We rise to any challenge and never give up, even when it seems impossible. We work together as a team and look after one another, showing kindness and respect. We love learning creatively and we know we all learn in different ways. We are part of a bigger community.
Welcome to Highover
My name is Lisa Hayes and I have the privilege of being Headteacher at Highover. We are all very proud of our popular, happy and successful school.
Highover is a large, fully inclusive two form-entry primary school, with the capacity for 450 children aged 3 to 11. We are extremely lucky to have extensive grounds spread around our 2 main buildings.
We have created several small teams to ensure continued excellence in standards of education as well as ensuring a rich, broad and balanced curriculum.
The teams consist of Early Years (Nursery and Reception), KS1 (Y1&2), Lower KS2 (Y3&4) and Upper KS2 (Y5&6).
We value all members of the school community and encourage our children to be inquisitive, independent and resilient. We celebrate diversity and recognise that we are all different but capable of working side by side harmoniously. We work together as a team and look after one another showing kindness and respect. We very much consider ourselves to be one big family.
Highover is a school very much at the centre of the community it serves. We place a strong emphasis on forging positive links with our families. We offer an extensive and varied range of ways to get involved in school life and support your children with learning, this includes book showcases, parent information sessions, workshops, consultations and class dojo to name but a few!
We very much live by our motto of ‘Enjoying and Achieving Together’. Staff encourage children to think of learning as something we will do for life. We celebrate the success of adults as well as pupils and staff model positive learning behaviours in all aspects of school life. Our aim is that pupils leave Highover with a positive attitude towards learning and lots of special memories of their time at our school.
As well as providing a strong learning environment during the day we offer an extensive range of extra curricular clubs, extending learning beyond the classroom. Examples of what is on offer are a variety of sports clubs, sewing, art, choir, orchestra, band, coding, homework, yoga. Please look at the website for a full list of what’s on offer.
Whilst our website will provide a flavour of what can be expected of life at Highover nothing substitutes experiencing it first hand. We warmly welcome visits to the school and run regular tours for Nursery and Reception pupils as well as providing personal tours for children joining the school during the academic year.
