Welcome to our brand new website which we hope you will find is a good go-to place for help and support. Please do not hesitate to contact us if there is something you cannot find.
If you are a prospective parent visiting for the first time and wishing to know whether High View is the school for your child, this might be the only way you can ‘visit’ the school right now, due to Covid-19 restrictions. Please visit our Parent Information section of this website, where you can see video footage of some of our learning experiences at High View, pre-Covid. I am also happy to have a one-to-one Zoom meeting or phone call with parents who require this, until physical tours can resume. Please call the office to make an appointment.
We are all very proud to be part of High View and hope that your visit to this website will provide you with not only the information you need, but also a glimpse into the daily life at our school.
We want all of our children to feel safe and well supported, no matter what challenges they may face. Learning at High View is interesting and exciting, with an ethos rooted in mutual respect, kindness and tolerance. Children come to school with a positive attitude, they are kind to one another and are eager to learn. They have a tremendous pride in what they achieve, both academically and creatively. During their time with us, children develop curiosity, confidence to take challenges and a voice that can be heard. Our oracy work is fundamental in developing children’s ability to reflect upon and challenge ideas, ask questions and build on the ideas and opinions of others. Creativity is embedded in our school and we place as much emphasis on the core subjects as we do all other subjects – this can be seen as soon as you walk through the door.
At High View, we endeavour to build upon our success as a National Teaching School and National Support School. We constantly strive to improve what we do in order to provide your children with the means to be the best they can be. We listen carefully to the opinions of children, parents, staff, Governors, partner schools and agencies and these partnerships help make High View a great school to be in.
