Highcliffe Primary School

A very warm welcome to Highcliffe Primary School’s website.  We hope you will enjoy reading about the opportunities and experiences we offer to children and their families in our school community. Please do not hesitate to arrange a visit to our school, if you would like to find out more.

At our school, we endeavour to promote an ethos which fosters mutual respect within a safe, purposeful and stimulating environment. In partnership with parents, governors and the community which we serve, our school provides somewhere for children to value their own achievements and to know that their efforts will be valued by all the parties that make up the school.


We encourage enquiring minds and positive attitudes to learning, ensuring equal access and opportunities for all. We endeavour to raise the achievement of all pupils by meeting the needs of each individual, and ensuring that all children achieve high standards in all aspects of their education, by offering a relevant and challenging curriculum.


 “Listen to the MUSTN’TS, child

Listen to the DON’TS

Listen to the SHOULDN’TS


Listen to the NEVER HAVES

Then listen close to me-

ANYTHING can happen, child,

ANYTHING can be.”

Shel Silverstein


Our school motto underpins everything we do:


With belief and hard work anything is possible.
