Head of School's Welcome
It is my great pleasure to welcome you to
The Highway Primary School website
The Highway Primary School has been serving the local community and providing a high quality education for over 70 years. Our inclusive, family ethos underpins a caring, safe environment where values such as self-esteem and mutual respect allow all children and staff to feel confident, happy and valued. We see all our children as unique individuals and really celebrate their diversity.
The Highway is a one-form entry, recently rebuilt and refurbished co-educational primary with approximately 220 pupils on roll. In April 2016 we were delighted to gain Academy status and become part of a Multi-Academy Trust known as the South Orpington Learning Alliance (SOLA) with 5 other local schools: Chelsfield Primary, Darrick Wood Junior School, Green St Green Primary, Pratts Bottom Primary and Tubbenden Primary.
Our school is set in beautiful, spacious grounds and is very well equipped with excellent resources including interactive whiteboards in every classroom. We have a networked computing suite, additional laptops and iPads, staging and lighting for productions, dedicated music room, library and well qualified, caring teachers. We also value your input, as your child’s first teachers, and your belief in us that we have the best interests of your child at heart. We have an open door policy so come in and talk to us!
We work hard to promote fundamental British values as part of our spiritual, moral, social and cultural education in school where we nurture the whole child, not just fulfilling their academic potential but their personal and creative development too. Being at the heart of the community, we ensure we work very closely in partnership with parents, carers and governors, where we live by our mission statement that ‘Everyone matters at The Highway’.
