What the school offers its staff

High Down Junior School is part of the Lighthouse Schools Partnership. It is also closely linked with High Down Infant School, and together we have high expectations and a belief that all children, regardless of background, can achieve their potential.

We are a happy school with a strong values based ethos.

Our children receive high quality lessons, enjoy a vibrant curriculum and have access to excellent resources and facilities. Our dedicated teaching staff work collegiately - expertise is shared and everyone unites to ensure the best possible education for our pupils.

We are recognized by Ofsted as a ‘Good’ school with many areas of excellence.

‘Teaching is good because teachers have high expectations of behaviour, and teachers use their secure subject knowledge to plan activities to engage pupils. As a result, pupils are enthusiastic learners.’

‘The school’s values are at the heart of all relationships and are constantly referred to by staff and pupils. As a consequence, pupils are able to talk eloquently about how to live by the values in order to become good citizens.’

‘Pupils’ behaviour is good. Pupils enjoy trusting, respectful relationships with staff and each other. These strong relationships ensure pupils work hard and try their best.’

The staff are given excellent CPD opportunities across the schools and we have an active and supportive local governing body and parent community.
