You are here: Highgate Primary School

Welcome to Highgate Primary School

During these unprecedented times, the school is currently closed to the great majority of children. It’s a learning curve for us all, but it’s wonderful to see the extraordinary creativity and resourcefulness within our school community as children are taught remotely in their homes. We wish you all the very best over the coming weeks as you take on the role of TA!

And whilst most children are working at home, we have a small group of children attending the Family Centre for our key worker provision. We thank all our parents and staff who are working so hard at home, within the NHS and delivering essential services. We will keep in touch with you with updates from school through email and here on the website.

In more normal times, Highgate Primary is a happy and successful two-form entry community school where there is great enthusiasm for learning from 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, Mandarin and sport are all highly valued and give our children many opportunities to shine. Our curriculum reflects our children’s interests and enables all pupils to achieve standards of which we are extremely proud.

At Highgate Primary children succeed because…

  • We are ambitious for every child
  • We know that consistently great teaching leads to outstanding achievement
  • We know that strong pastoral support can make all the difference
  • We know that children learn best through positive messages
  • We have talented staff who inspire
  • We are there for our community from birth to secondary
  • We listen to what children say and allow them to dream

We aim for all our children to move through school with confidence, good friendships and happy memories. 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.
