Welcome to Highwoods Community Primary School

Learning for Life

At Highwoods, we are passionate about developing the whole child when supporting and nurturing young minds.  Through our rich, varied curriculum, our Forest Schools Programme and our love of learning, we provide a stimulating , safe and fun environment where children learn about themselves and the world around them.  Throughout their time at Highwoods, children become equipped with the knowledge and key skills needed to succeed and take their learning further in the future in an ever-evolving society.

We are continuing to follow advice from the DFE and Public Health England in respect of Coronavirus.

A few headlines from our most recent Ofsted:

“Parents, carers and pupils appreciate the friendly, “community” feel of the school.”

“Leaders have the support of staff, governors and the wider school community.  Parents are extremely positive about every aspect of the school and the overwhelming majority would recommend the school to others.”

“The good relationships and mutual respect established between teachers and pupils result in a calm and purposeful atmosphere in classes and around the school.  Pupils are very supportive of their teachers.”

“Pupils say that they feel safe in school and staff agree.  They know who to go to if they have a concern and feel supported by the ways in which issues are resolved.”

Prospective Families for September 2021

We would usually be meeting and showing many families around our school at this time of year, when parents are making the important decision of which school is right for their child/children.  Unfortunately, because of Covid-19, we are unable to hold parent tours this year.

Instead, we will soon be posting a link to a virtual guide to our school, produced by our staff and children.  In the meantime, please follow us at @HCPSColchester, look through our website and read our updated prospectus below.

We hope to welcome you into our school community soon.
