“High Aims – High Challenge – High Standards”
We are a school that wants to be the best that we can possibly be. We know that by supporting one another we can achieve great things, children and adults together. We want all our children to leave Highcliffe as happy, independent and resilient learners who have reached their own potential, with enduring self-belief and an abiding respect for others.
Through our 6Rs: Respect, Responsibility, Resilience, Resourcefulness, Reflection and Reciprocity, we aim to create…
An atmosphere of belonging and value, where everyone is both physically and emotionally healthy, secure and successful; ensuring equality of opportunity, respect for others and a secure belief in their own ability.
A lifelong love for learning where everyone is encouraged to develop and reach their potential whatever his or her ability. We encourage children to take ownership of their own learning so that they have the confidence and curiosity to ask questions, solve problems and respond to high quality feedback.
Outstanding teaching and learning by holding the highest expectations of children and knowing them well. Encouraging the development of a range of skills and talents which enrich the children’s education; their success being recognised and shared by all.
A variety of challenging and inspiring opportunities to promote enjoyment, enthusiasm, creativity, independence and teamwork. We take inspiration from all that we, and others, have accomplished before and are excited and eager about the challenges and opportunities that are to come. We are confident to take risks and feel safe recognising and learning from our failures.
Community cohesion whereby we welcome and encourage the active involvement of, and contribution from, parents, staff, governors, children and the local community in the life of our school.
“Every child deserves a champion, an adult who insists that they become the best they can possibly be”
