Last week Mr Gulzar and Miss Downes welcomed Sir Michael Wilshaw, Her Majesty's Chief Inspector of Schools, Lorna Fitzjohn OFSTED's Regional Director and Jane Millward HMI to Highfield School to discuss Safeguarding in Birmingham.
Mr Gulzar said "It was a very productive meeting discussing how professionals across Birmingham could further improve safeguarding for our pupils. We were able to talk about in detail the good work that currently takes place across the PACT and learn of other great practice elsewhere.' Miss Downes added 'Safeguarding continues to be at the fore front of all we do and as an organisation, we are continually looking for ways to be even better.'
Congratulations to our Year 6 children winning the level 2 Tennis competition on Thursday 9th June at King Edwards, Aston.
Well done to all the children that took part you all played extremely well. Mr Jay.
We are delighted to announce that following the successful voting on new school houses, as of September 2016 the new houses will be:
To celebrate the launch of our new school houses we are pleased to inform you that in September 2016 your child will receive a FREE P.E t shirt as part of the new P.E uniform for Highfield School. The t shirt will feature your child’s house logo which is the house they will remain in for their time at Highfield School. This t shirt will then be worn for every P.E lesson along with black shorts/jogging bottoms/leggings and suitable footwear.
May I also take this opportunity to inform you that should your child require a new t shirt due to loss or damage following receiving their free t shirt they will need to be purchased at a cost of £5.30 per t shirt. In order to avoid your child losing there t shirt when they have received it, it is advised that you write/label your child’s name clearly inside of the t shirt.
We hope that you are pleased with our new houses and would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your participation in forming the new houses. We also hope that your child/ren will enjoy their new t shirt and will support their Physical Education during their time at Highfield School.
I would like to thank all the children, parents and staff that voted for the new school houses, we look forward to introducing them next academic year.
We are going to have lots of fun learning circus skills.
We can't wait!
