Highbank Primary and Nursery School Careers Site Eteach (10950)


Highbank is all about 3 words:


Above all else, we want every child at Highbank to be happy; we believe that school years should be the best of your life! We want our children to leave Highbank feeling valued, confident and most of all with fond memories that they will cherish forever. To achieve this we aim to know every child as an individual knowing their strengths, weaknesses and what motivates them. To be happy at school every child must feel comfortable, safe and involved. And every member of staff at Highbank works hard to ensure EVERY child achieves this.

A happy child is a learning child who will make progress and achieve great success!

We believe Highbank to be like a big family! One that shares and celebrates successes, helps each other through difficult times, looks after and teaches each other and occasionally falls out! We welcome everyone into this family environment and have a very open door policy; we want to involve all of the family in the child's learning journey from the day they start in Nursery to when they leave at 11 ready to go on to great things.
