Head teachers letter of welcome

HeadteacherDear parents and carers,

Welcome to Highfield Nursery School. We are an inclusive and supportive school where we place individuals at the heart of everything we set out to achieve.

We have ambitions for our children of all ages and abilities. Working in partnership with parents and carers is important to us as our hardworking and dedicated team strive to help every child become the best they can be.

We work diligently to create a safe environment in which our children can feel happy and secure. Your child’s wellbeing is just as important to us as their academic ability. Children learn when they are happy and feel safe and secure.

In April 2017 I was excited to become Head teacher of this newly formed collaboration of maintained nursery schools between Highfield and Duke Street. I feel that the collaboration of schools will bring many benefits to the whole school community and I’m very much looking forward to our future together.

Please explore our website. By viewing the pages and galleries displaying our activities, we hope you have an insight into what we have to offer your children at Highfield Nursery School. What our website cannot show you, however, is our supportive and encouraging ethos and the sense of excitement our children have developed for learning.

If you would like to see this for yourself, please ring to arrange a visit or call in, preferably during school hours, no appointment required.

We look forward to meeting you and showing you what Highfield has to offer your child.

Sue Conron
