  • Compassion is one of the key values of the school.
  • Compassion underpins the way that adults approach their duty of care to pupils and is a distinctive feature of relationships at Highfields.
  • Pupils are clear that they can approach any adult if they have any worries. They are rightly confident that support is in place to help them resolve issues that might arise.
  •  Each pupil spoken to explained that they were happy and safe at school. Pupils said that ‘bullying is not something we are used to here’.
  • Every one of the parents who responded on Parent View agreed that their child is safe and happy.
  • Pupils are very courteous, polite and mix together extremely well. They move around the well-maintained school corridors cheerfully and maturely.
  • At break and lunchtime they make energetic use of the well-supervised school grounds. 
  • Topics are well chosen to enable pupils to delve deeply into differing cultures from Britain and around the world. Pupils talk with confidence about how this information is helping them to ‘understand what other people experience’ and ‘to respect different cultures’.
  • The curriculum is vibrantly enriched by a wide range of opportunities for pupils to develop their spiritual, moral, social and cultural understanding. One pupil explained that ‘we have lots of chances here’. 
  • Through skillful encouragement, a key stage 2 pupil was able to speak enthusiastically and confidently about the ‘unifying effect of the equal rights movement’ in 20th century America.
  • ‚ÄčThrough taught lessons, visiting speakers and special assemblies, pupils are able to develop strategies to keep safe in a variety of settings. For example, pupils explained how to keep safe online or near water, roads or rail.

Odd Socks Day

On Tuesday November 12th  2019 we  celebrated “Odd Socks day” to promote Anti-Bullying Week,

This year the focus from the charity “Anti-Bullying Alliance” is to promote a collective responsibility to stop bullying and for everyone from the youngest to the oldest to feel that they can speak up to challenge bullying.

To show that we are standing up to bullying, all we needed to do is come to school wearing odd socks. No donations were necessary.

We had a whole school assembly on the theme of “Change starts with me”.

Coram Life Education  Visit

We  share access across year groups to a visit from The LifeSpace  brought to us by our PSHE curriculum provider, Coram Life Education. In January 2020 it was the turn of the Year 5s, 6s and Reception. Nancy and Ellie brought their LifeSpace Tent which was set up on the small hall.

The Reception children met Harold the Giraffe who is very excited about going to his grandparents’ house. The children helped him check he has everything in his bag including the items in his wash bag.

The Year 5’s workshop followed the theme of theme of looking after our mental health, as well as physical health . The  connection between the two is explored using the Wellbeing Wheel. We also consider how to ensure that online behaviour is healthy and balanced.

Jesse from Year 5 said “I liked the part when we had to learn about the brain and what it controls”

His classmate Sean added “I learnt about how important friends are and that we should think about how we act”.

The Year 6s attended a “bCyberwise” Workshop. This workshop promoted positive cyber citizenship and taught the children how to be respectful and safe online with innovative and needs-led resources.

P.S.H.E provides us with all of the skills we need in life, and is a subject that underpins the ethos of this school. Tolerance, respect, resilience and hard work are embedded across the school - our children are a wonderful example of this.

 

Children's work across the school

 

Our curriculum is planned to engage and excite all learners using SCARF. Below you will find examples of work across key stage 1 and 2. Key stage 1 really enjoy creating their learning journeys whilst key stage 2 have produced some fantastic work on health and safety.
