About the Academy

Highfields Primary Academy endeavours to ensure our early learners turn into life long learners.

The Academy follows 3 simple behaviour rules that are at the heart of all that we do. These are defined in the ways we expect the children to be:

  • Be Safe
  • Be Respectful
  • Be Responsible 

In addition to these ways to be, we have 3 values that we instill in our learning. These are:

  • Courage
  • Community 
  • Commitment

We focus helping each child to achieve their social, emotional and academic potential and working with families is central in everything we do. 

We strive to provide a safe, secure and stimulating environment where curiosity is welcomed, inquiry is encouraged and learning is fostered. 

We aim to enhance the life of all learners throughout the local and global community, equipping them with the skills and knowledge to take a full part in society. At Highfields learners feel pride in their efforts, have confidence in their own abilities and courage to try new things.
