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 per day for 38 weeks).  Some parents may be eligible for 30 hours of free Early Years education.  Eligibility can be checked through the following website:


In certain circumstances we may be able to admit children to our Nursery in the school term AFTER their third birthday.  This is only IF there are spaces available.

Once the application form is received by the school your child will be added to the waiting list for the appropriate year which is the academic year of their 4th birthday.


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 for a place in a Reception class between September 1st and January 15th, the year before your child is due to start school.
