Welcome to Highgate
Primary School

Highgate Primary is a happy and successful two-form entry community school where there is great enthusiasm for fun and learning from both the pupils and a highly committed and experienced staff team. Adults are referred to by their first name and we have a no-uniform policy.

Music, art and whole-school performances, philosophy, science and sport are all highly valued and give our children many opportunities to shine. The Highgate Primary curriculum reflects our children’s interests and enables them to achieve standards of which we are extremely proud. The aim is for our children to move through life with confidence, excellent skills, good friendships and happy memories of primary school.

Parents are always welcome to come and visit Highgate Primary where they can meet the children and staff and find out more about our school.

Story of the week

05 Oct 2015
A very warm welcome to our Nursery and Reception children who started on Monday 21st September. The children seem to be settling in exceptionally well and are excited about their new adventure.
Over the summer the Early Years classrooms have been wonderfully renovated.  The result is an impressively large, light-filled, appealing space, with soft bright carpets, large windows and skylights and an enticing kitchen area. Double doors allow the reception classrooms to interconnect so that children can use the whole space and free-flow between them.  A glass wall between Nursery and Reception offers lots of opportunities for the Nursery children to have an insight into what they can expect when they move into Reception.
On Friday 18th September,  staff, governors and colleagues from Haringey’s education team were invited to look around the beautiful classrooms and celebrate the opening of the new Early Years space.
The next treat in store for the children will be the newly designed outside space, with plans for a digging area, a reading hut on stilts and a mud kitchen designed by parents. I think the older children will be very jealous!
