Parents and Carers
We firmly believe that parents and carers who take on a supportive role in their child’s learning make a difference in improving achievement and behaviour. The active involvement of parents in the life of the school can help promote a learning community in which pupils can engage positively with school staff and their peers.
Through our open mornings, celebration events, enterprise fairs as well as performances we feel that we provide parents with the opportunity to understand the role that they play in their child’s learning and development. We know that parental/carer involvement creates a meaningful and crucial partnership with school and enhances the education process.
The school recognises the value of students learning at home and sees this as a means of strengthening the educational process.
Homework within Highfurlong is dependant upon the key stage the student belongs to and takes into account their specific learning needs.
Residential and Educational visits
We believe that educational outings alongside residential visits, greatly enhance the children’s learning experience and are essential to the development of an inquiring and imaginative mind. Such visits stimulate greater interest and often provide hands-on experiences that help children make sense of historical, geographical or scientific concepts.
SeeSaw is the child friendly app we use as our evidence collection tool within school for all work completed by our students.

Tea and Talk sessions
The Special Educational Needs and Disability, Information, Advice and Support Service (SENDIASS) hold ‘Tea & Talk’ information sessions for families who may benefit from attending. The sessions are very informal and driven by attendees in terms of what information they would like to know in regards to SEND. You can find out more information on the new SENDIASS website www.blackpool.gov.uk/sendiass
