Vision and Values
‘Our children are at the heart of everything we do, we want our pupils and staff to be the best they can be and we want to be one of the best schools in the country’ Mr. Oldham, Head Teacher
The vision for our school is to be the best resourced provider in the area/country, with state of the art facilities, meeting a wide variety of need. The school will offer education of the highest possible quality delivered by a team of highly skilled staff.
Teaching and learning is and will continue to be enjoyable and fun and is of the highest possible standards, so the children and young people will be the ‘best they can be’. Highfurlong School will work with families, other professionals, colleagues and the wider community to realise our vision. Happy pupils, happy staff, happy families and outstanding progress for all.
‘It is a joy to just stand in the school and feel the goodness coming out of it.’ (Ofsted 2014)
As such, the vision for this school is very clear:
We inspire the Highfurlong Family to be the best that they can be
Our bespoke curriculum provides challenge in all areas of education and development for the pupils
We believe everyone can flourish in our warm and friendly school
In summary, as an outstanding school, we are not afraid to move forward. Our culture and ethos is one of continual improvement and high aspiration – ‘to be the best we can be’ in every aspect of our work. Highfurlong sets itself apart by continuing to develop and deliver the very best provision with a wide range of innovative processes.
