    8th March 2018 - Highfields Primary Academy

    Thank you to all parents and children for supporting World Book Day, especially those parents who were able to come into school and share reading in the newly designed library space.  The cosutmes and enthusiasm made it a great day.  We have so many opportunities to share stories so we made the most of this year's theme!  To ensure there is a lasting legacy we will be continuing to find ways to share stories in school and encourage families to do the same!  Thanks again to everyone.
