About Us

Our Aim

Welcome to Highfield CE Primary School – a very special school in the heart of Southampton. We are a school that has strong links with our local church and believe that our Christian values of love, serve and trust is at the centre of who we are and what we do. We serve a diverse community and celebrate and value how we all work and learn together in harmony.

At Highfield, we have our children at the heart of everything we do.

We employ staff who believe that they are positive role models that can make a difference in educating the whole child, alongside parents as partners. We want time at Highfield to be positive and full of memorable learning. Promoting the skills of lifelong learning means that children leave us as rounded learners that are resilient, reflective, can ask good questions and work well both independently and in teams. We value and welcome any feedback to improve the experiences of the children and wider community. We are also pleased to hear when things are going well as this helps us to reflect on what is working well in order to achieve our overarching aim:

For children to look back on their years and say that Highfield was a great place!

This is what we want our legacy to be and working closely with parents, the church, governors and the wider community is a crucial part of achieving this together. We are proud of our school and look forward to you and your child becoming part of our wonderful school community.
