The Foundation Stage

We would like to welcome all of our new children to Highfields Primary school.

Entering Reception at Highfields Primary School is your child’s first step on their school journey. We recognise that this is a huge transition for both children and their parents. We look forward to working with you and your child to develop their lifelong love of learning. We will work in partnership with you to develop your child’s self- esteem, confidence and growing independence.  In your child's first year at Highfields we will build strong foundations to help your child foster a love of learning.
