Welcome to Highbury Primary and Nursery School

A word from our head teacher

Welcome to Highbury Primary and Nursery Website

As you are reading this I presume that you are looking for a new school for your child/children. Well Highbury has plenty of exciting learning opportunities for them.

Here at Highbury we plan for your child’s learning according to their attainment not age. So within each class pupils will learn in small groups alongside other pupils who are at the same stage of learning. Staff will ensure that the activities are carefully crafted to challenge every child.

Pupils will study a full range of subjects from the national curriculum but great emphasis will be given to speaking and listening, reading and writing as well as key number skills. All of these key areas will ensure future success for your child.

Creativity will be promoted throughout the school day. With teachers planning motivation starting points at the beginning of themes, at the beginning of weeks and within lessons themselves. These will include trips out, visitors in to school, dressing up and role playing situations and much more.

Children with special educational needs will be carefully planned for as individuals to ensure that they too make maximum progress in their learning and higher attaining pupils challenged to exceed their best. Our new Inclusion Leader will be inviting you to attend sessions to learn about how we cater for your child.

Here at Highbury we know your children have lots of personal interests so we try to cater for them. This term we are running lots of clubs to enthuse them. There will be choir, Nativity, hockey, needle craft, and French to name but a few. For those children who find homework hard there will be a club to support them too. At lunchtime there will always be staff available to help the children with the school garden and pet club.

We will have a Harvest Festival celebration and a Nativity for foundation and Key Stage 1. There will also be an Easter play and an end of year production by the juniors. This year the leavers may be having a ball again!

School life is rich and vibrant. Our children here at Highbury feel safe and happy and know where to go for help.

If you would like to visit us please phone the office and it would be my pleasure to show you round.

Yours sincerely

Mrs Sarah Sadler
