Nursery Places

At Highfields Primary School, we are able to allocate part time (15h hours) places for children who are of nursery age (3 to 4 years old).

Where we have more children than places available, your child will be placed on a waiting list on a first come first served basis. You will be contacted by the school when a place becomes available. If you want to know where your child is on the waiting list, we will be happy to let you know.
