Highfields School became an academy on December 1, 2015. We are currently the only school in the Highfields Multi-Academy Trust.
The Governing Body and all levels of leadership are involved in the pursuit of excellence. There is a focus on every child and a belief that every child matters and that every child will achieve and make progress. As an academy we look to achieve this by developing:
High quality teaching, learning and assessment that engages and meets the needs of all learners
A staffing structure that allows school leaders to focus on the strategic direction of the school and allows teachers to focus on teaching, learning and assessment
A high quality CPD, Lead Practitioner and staff support programme that supports staff pedagogy, recruitment and retention
A broad, balanced and engaging curriculum that challenges every student and allows them to follow the pathway that is most appropriate for them
Strong links with industry, higher education and the community that allow students to contextualise their learning
Outstanding support, care and guidance through a well-trained and highly skilled Inclusion Team
Excellent relationships with and amongst staff and students
Excellent attendance and punctuality
A strong and responsive Voices programme that allows everyone to be heard and listened
A wide range of extracurricular activities, and student leadership programmes to enrich the learning experience
A positive contribution to and relationship with the local community
A supportive working partnership with home
