School Ethos and Values

Our Vision at Highcliffe is:

·       To create and maintain a caring and stimulating environment which encourages positive attitudes to learning

·       To promote academic achievement and the concept of continuous improvement in raising levels of attainment

·       To encourage all children to have enquiring minds and belief in their own ability

·       To have an environment which promotes and supports positive behaviour, and effective teaching and learning

·       To help promote and broaden the social, moral, cultural and spiritual understanding and development of all children

·       To form an effective partnership with parents, governors and the school’s community so that there is common ownership and mutual support in developing the school


Our ethos is that, with hard work and belief, anything is possible – this is also our school motto.


Our School Values, the 3R’s underpin everything we do!
