At Highfields we want our children to develop a love of learning. To develop a curiosity for the world in which we live, to ask questions, to explore, to experience, to take risks. To be flexible thinkers, problem solvers that have the skills and attitudes to face the changing 21st century with a positive mind set and the ability to thrive. We want them to believe in themselves as individuals, to exceed their own expectations, to feel proud of who they are, to feel valued, to understand the importance of their own voice, to be independent – to feel empowered. We want them to develop a love of reading and the arts and an appreciation of the wide range of cultures that this world has to offer. We want to instil in them a set of values that demonstrate tolerance, kindness, respect, determination and persistence. We want our children to experience excellence and to achieve their best.
