Highlands Primary School is a three form entry school, meaning that we admit 90 children in each year group from Reception to Year 6.
We always welcome visits to the school, so if you would like a tour please contact the school office on 020 8554 0044.
We will offer all places in line with the Redbridge Admissions Policy.
If you would like your child to attend our school, please see full details of our admission arrangements below.
Highlands Nursery Admissions
Highlands Primary School has a Nursery accommodating 39 children in both morning and afternoon sessions.
Children are admitted to our Nursery in the academic year of their 4th birthday. All parents are entitled to 15 hours of free Early Years education for their child each week (i.e. 5 sessions of 3 hours/day for 38 weeks). In certain circumstances, parents may be eligible for 30 hours of free Early Years education - please contact the school office for more details.
In certain circumstances we can admit children to our Nursery in the school term AFTER their third birthday IF spaces are available.
TO APPLY for a Nursery place for your child please contact the school office to add your child’s name to the Waiting List.
Priorities for admission are as follows:
1. “looked after children” who are in the care of a Local Authority as defined by section 22 of the Children Act 1989 and are still expected to be in care when due to be admitted to school;
2. exceptional medical or social reasons, which should be supported by a qualified professional directly involved with child;
3. siblings with preference to older children according to their date of birth; and
4. all other applicants with preference to older children.
The statutory right to appeal does not apply to admissions to nursery classes.
Please note, a place in a nursery class DOES NOT guarantee that your child will be admitted to the main school. You will need to apply again for a place in a Reception class at the appropriate time.
