Highbury Primary School

New Entrants 2021

Welcome to Highbury Primary School! 

I am so pleased to hear that you have been offered a place at our fantastic school for September 2021 one which I am very proud to be headteacher of. Many of you attended our online meeting and I am delighted to be welcoming you and your child/ren.

Transition to primary school is an exciting time but for some it can be daunting, which is why we always go to great lengths to ensure we have good communication with the setting children are coming from and that parents and children have lots of opportunities to become familiar with their new school before the start of the summer holiday.

The Department for Education (DfE) has published a new guide for parents called "What to Expect in the Early Years Foundation Stage" - this guides parents through what to expect with their child’s development and the guide can be found below should you wish to read a copy:

What to expect in the Early Years Foundation Stage: a guide for parents

Our school values and our motto, ‘Valued as individuals, inspired and nurtured as learners,’ sums up our community. In times such as these that we are currently experiencing, our values will help us to remember that we are all in this together. We aim to be resilient, respectful, confident, kind, inclusive and aspirational every day.

As I often say to the staff and children at our school, ‘BE YOUR BEST’. It may take time, but we will help to make it work for all.

We will keep you informed regularly as we have been doing so for our existing Highbury families.

Yours sincerely

Mr Howard

Headteacher
