Headlands CE (C) JIN School is a successful primary school with high expectations of attainment and achievement for all pupils, judged by Ofsted as ‘good’ in all areas. As an attachment and trauma informed school, we recognise that a pupil's happiness and well-being are the foundation for their success and is essential to nurture, educate and care for the 'whole person'.
The staff at Headlands School are committed to ensuring that all of our pupils acquire and develop the skills, knowledge and understanding that will allow them to thrive and ‘live life in all its fullness’ (John 10:10). We know that we have a duty to equip our children with the communication and social skills that will support them to build positive relationships and flourish within our local and global community. It is also fundamental that everyone has a right to be safe, healthy and feel a sense of positive wellbeing. We are incredibly proud that during our recent SIAMS inspection (February 2023) it was noted that ‘Pupils are confident that the school enables them to be their very best selves. Kind, unwavering love and support, created by the strong family community, makes pupils and staff feel valued and able to flourish.’
