The pupils at Highpark Primary and LCR enjoy a rich and varied curriculum, supported by many exciting learning opportunities within our local and wider communities.
We strive to create an inclusive, friendly, and kind partnerships between pupils, one which is built upon Positive and Restorative Relationships.
At Highpark, each child is assigned a House Group, where they can earn points over the course of week to contribute to a House Reward at the end of each term. House Groups are essential, they create community spirit and give the children an opportunity to contribute to the vision and values set out by all stakeholders of the life and ethos of Highpark Primary.
The House System creates a visible and consistent approach to promoting positive behaviour,
whilst developing a shared understanding of positive behaviour will all pupils.
