Description of the school

Highfield Junior is a larger-than-average-sized primary school. The percentage of pupils eligible for free school meals is lower than average.

There is a higher-than-average proportion of pupils from minority ethnic groups, although the number of pupils whose first language is not English is lower than average. The proportion of pupils with learning difficulties and/or disabilities, including those who have a statement of special educational needs, is lower than average. This includes a group with moderate learning difficulties and a group with behavioural, emotional and social difficulties.

There is private childcare provision on site, with a breakfast club and an after school club. The school has the Healthy School Award and the Activemark accreditation for the promotion of physical activity. The current headteacher has been in post since April 2008.
