Getting Ready For School

As our Nursery School children approach their third birthday, we prepare them for their next move. We always respond to the individual needs and inclinations of each child and so, in some cases, they may move before their third birthday and with others we may wait a little longer until we feel they are ready for this next step on their Highfield journey. Whilst still in our Nursery School, the children will visit Pre-School and spend time with the Pre-School teacher and with our Pre-School Nursery Nurse. They will become familiar with their new surroundings and new adults before they make the move into Pre-School.

Our Early Years and Foundation Stage Coordinator, Miss Halstead, is a Lead Practitioner within Lancashire and a fully qualified teacher.

Pre-School is situated in the Main School building (which feels very grown-up!) but its play area (accessible through the large patio-style doors to the rear of the classroom) is shared with our Nursery School.

"The overall effectiveness of the Early Years provision is outstanding. Across the age range, children make excellent progress from their starting points; they are well prepared for the next stage of their education and by the end of the EYFS they are ready for school."

Compliance Inspection, 2016

All our EYFS staff are Paediatric First Aid trained and, with the exception of apprentices, are qualified at Level 3 and above.

The latest from Highfield Priory

Highfield Priory School added 5 new photos.

Year 4's history topic this term is Prehistoric Britain. They have been looking at what life was like for Palaeolithic people hundreds of thousands of years ago during the Stone Age. One of the clues left over from that time is the paintings found on the walls of caves. Having studied some, 4S decided to create some of their own. Fantastic 4S!
