Since schools closed on Friday 20th March we have been waiting for information to be released by the government & KCC on how we could effectively support parents of children on Free School Meals with supermarket vouchers. By Thursday last week we had still not received this information and so the school instead ordered these directly themselves from a different source, at cost to the school, in order that we can make them available to families. We are hoping they will be available for distribution within the next couple of days. Each voucher will be valid at ASDA and is to the value of £28 per child.  This funding covers last week, the three days of the school term this week & the first two days of the summer term. We will let you know once they are available.


Today, as you may have heard on the news, the details of the national scheme have finally been released and so we will be using this from the end of April onwards to ensure you receive your weekly funding, which will now be set at £15 per week during term-time; this will still be in the form of a supermarket voucher which can either be received electronically or in voucher form. The funding is intended for purchasing of food items for your child(ren) and will not be valid for age-restricted purchases. Further information will be circulated with your vouchers later this week.

High Firs Primary School is now closed to all pupils except for those who are eligible to attend under the critical workers or social care categories.

The coming weeks will bring challenges for us all. To all our children, staff and their families we simply say “take care” and we hope to see you all back at school very soon.

Our school office are continuing to monitor emails so please do contact us using the form on the “Contact Us” tab above if you need to get in touch.

Our Vision Statement

At High Firs Primary School we endeavour to ensure that our pupils are happy, safe and successful. We are committed to giving every individual child the skills to develop their talents, whatever they may be, by having very high expectations of all our children. We are dedicated to helping children achieve their full potential whatever their ability. We are also committed to providing opportunities for everyone to participate and excel in a wide range of Extended Schools’ activities. It is our belief that in an interactive, stimulating, fun and attractive environment children will develop a love for learning as well as a respect for other individuals and the world around them. We will encourage children to develop a growing sense of moral responsibility, good citizenship & an understanding of their role within the community and the value of a healthy lifestyle. We recognise the important contribution that parents & carers play in their children’s learning and by working in partnership we can all achieve more together. Our aim is to enable the children in our school to become confident, independent and creative individuals who are well prepared to meet their future challenges.
