A message from the Chair
The governors at Highfield Primary School are very pleased to have this website. We feel that it is bright, cheerful and very child friendly.
As Chair of Governors I am very proud our school. I believe that it has a real community feel and I really enjoy being Chair of Governors in this forward thinking, successful school. The Governors play an active part in the running of the school. Each governor is linked to an area of the School Improvement Plan and they get to talk to curriculum coordinators and observe relevant lessons. As Governors we also meet termly where we receive a report from Mr Thompson on what is happening at the school.
I hope you enjoy looking at our website and that it will help keep you up to date with what is happening in school.
