At Higham Ferrers Nursery and Infant School we believe in the concept of life long learning, preparing children for the challenges that lay ahead.  We firmly believe that learning should be a rewarding and enjoyable experience for everyone.  Through our daily teaching we seek to equip children with the skills, knowledge and understanding necessary to be able to make informed decisions and choices about the important things in their lives.

Higham Ferrers Nursery and Infant School is committed to Safeguarding and Promoting the Welfare of all of its pupils and it is the responsibility of all school staff, governors and volunteers.

Higham Ferrers Nursery and Infant School will therefore:

  • Establish and maintain an environment where children feel secure and are encouraged to talk and are listened to
  • Ensure that staff are able to identify welfare concerns and take appropriate action to address their concerns
  • Ensure children know that there are adults in the school whom they can approach if they are worried
  • Include opportunities in PHSE curriculum for children to develop the skills they need to recognise and stay safe from abuse
  • Recognise that each pupil’s welfare is of paramount importance and that some children may be especially vulnerable to abuse e.g. those with special educational needs, those living in adverse circumstances eg those who witness violence.

Assessment is an integral part of the National Curriculum statutory procedures. Quality assessment is a pre-requisite for quality teaching. At Higham Ferrers Nursery and Infants School we believe assessment should: • Occur on a daily basis • Help to provide a clear picture of each child's attainment • Inform future planning • Provide information for teachers, parents, governors, schools receiving information and children themselves • Be consistent, reliable and manageable

Our Acceptable Use Policy sets out the roles, responsibilities and procedures for the acceptable, safe and responsible use of all on-line technologies (including the Internet, e-mail, web cams, Instant Messaging and other social networking spaces, mobile phones and games) to safeguard adults and children and young people within the school setting.

Higham Ferrers Nursery and Infant School aims to ensure that all its pupils receive a full time education which maximises opportunities for each child to realise their true potential. This can only be achieved if a child attends school regularly and punctually. There is a clear link between attendance and achievement. If children are not attending school regularly they will be unable to access the opportunities available to them.
