Values and Ethos

Our Mission Statement

Having recently become part of James Montgomery Academy Trust and changing our name to Highfield Farm Primary, it was also a great time to reflect on and update our mission and values. Our mission is now encapsulated by our new motto:

‘Together we will’

In reality this means that together we will…

  • Provide a welcoming, secure and stimulating environment
  • Raise achievement through a commitment to high standards and expectations
  • Enable every child to succeed as independent, enthusiastic and confident learners
  • Provide active, co-operative and independent learning through dynamic and high quality teaching
  • Create an atmosphere where each child is valued as an individual, enabling them to develop a positive self-image, self-discipline and respect for others
  • Ensure equality of opportunity at all times, so that each child is given appropriate support and enrichment
  • Create an inclusive learning community which challenges and enables every learner to flourish, prosper and develop aspirations for a successful future
  • Provide an innovative, creative and integrated curriculum which inspires and motivates children to learn
  • Celebrate our rich diversity and work in partnership with parents, children and the wider community


Our core values

  • Be kind
  • Show respect
  • Keep trying


We believe our core values are few enough in number to be remembered by the children and staff. Simple enough to be explained by staff and understood by children and tangible enough to be demonstrated by everyone. Thus, making them able to be embedded into the culture of Highfield Farm Primary.
