On 4th February 2024 members of staff from Alsager Highfields will be running the ‘Alsager 5’ a 5 mile road race in order to raise much needed funds for the school. Money raised will go towards improving outdoor spaces for children at the main school and the annexe. Thank you so much for your support! Team Highfields 👏🤞🙌

As we have recently covered, a group of year 5 & 6 pupils from Alsager Highfields completed x3 design technology workshops at Alsager School during the autumn term. The sessions covered food technology, textiles and resistant materials (woodwork). The carousel of workshops finished at the end of last term and they have been a great success. Comments from the pupils include.
- “Design and technology was a really new and exciting experience.” (Ottilie)
- Shianne, Arthur, Hayley and Erin enjoyed using the pillar drill when making their toolboxes.
- “I loved everything about it.” (Scarlett, Rosie, Lillia)
In the textiles workshops, children printed and stitched their own pencil cases. They also developed their own fabric painting and marking skills for a wall hanging that is now up at Highfields. The design was inspired by the works of Edwardo Paolozzi and Wassily Kandinsky. I am sure you will agree from the photos that it looks fantastic!
All the children were a delight to work with and thanks must go to Mrs Birchall, Mrs Sample and Mr Preston for running the workshops. This has been a great example of two schools in our multi academy trust collaborating together for the benefit of our young people.

PROPOSED CHANGE TO PAN OF ALSAGER HIGHFIELDS PRIMARY SCHOOL
As the admissions authority, The Cornovii Trust is consulting on the proposed reduction of the Published Admission Number (PAN) at Alsager Highfields Primary School from 45 to 30, from September 2025. This would mean that the maximum number of children who are admitted from September 2025 in reception would be 30, with a maximum of 30 in year groups 1 and 2 and a maximum of 32 in years 3 to 6.

Cheshire Young Carers, by Mrs Muddy
Date: 7th Jul 2023 @ 2:46pm
A young carer is a child aged 6 to 18 who carries out activities that can be defined as “providing care” for a parent/guardian or sibling. Many of them do not qualify for any kind of statutory support. The carer role they undertake can range from occasionally looking after a sibling to supporting an adult with medical interventions, general housework, preparing meals and generally running the household.
Please find below a leaflet which has information on the support offered by Cheshire Young Carers. Click on the links below for more information about their holiday programmes.
