Welcome to High Street Primary Academy
We would like to welcome you and your family to our school.
 We appreciate that it is a very important time for you and your child and therefore we aim to make this transition as smooth as possible, despite the current situation that we are in.
 If your child is due to start school with us is September 2020 then please use this page to learn about our school and look at the useful information. This will help you to prepare you and your child for their start in Foundation.
 Starting school is a big new adventure and we will be with you every step of the way!
School Induction
Hi! My name is Mrs Haddy and I will be your teacher when you start at High Street. We will also have Mrs Nichol in class to support us too. We are both looking forward to finding out all about you!
Becoming school ready
Here are some of the things you could do at home to prepare your child for starting school!
We do not expect your child to come to school being able to read and write.
Children start school at all different stages and will develop at their own pace.
