Highfields Primary Academy draws directly from the local community with the majority of pupils living within walking distance. The vast majority of its intake comes from Highfields estate. In terms of deprivation, the academy is in the top 10% in the country with a deprivation index indicator of 0.51.
In May 2018 the academy received a Requires Improvement judgement from OFSTED, with Leadership and Management and Personal development, behaviour and welfare being graded as Good.
The academy is a smaller than average school that is currently undersubscribed although a lot of work is being done to increase pupil numbers. There are 5 classes in total. We currently have 125 pupils on roll, including 19 in the nursery.
