New Early Years Building Plans

In October 2022, four teenagers broke onto the school site and set fire to our Nursery School. The news shocked the whole school community and left us reeling as we came to terms with such senseless waste and destruction. However, in true Highfield spirit, the school and wider community sprung into action to make the best of this terrible situation. Classes moved out of their classrooms and creating new spaces within school to accommodate our Nursery within the main building and staff worked tirelessly to make this possible; and pupils and parents (past and present) brought in toys and books and offered their comfort and support throughout.

After months of hard work we are now in a position to showcase the plans for our new early years building.

The new building will contain areas for both Nursery and Preschool as well as a new outdoor area. This will allow for greater coordination and transition through the early years. We will be able to offer an improved sleeping facility and a wet room for the children to use after their muddy forest school sessions. We are looking forward to completion of the building and hope to welcome our first children towards the end of Autumn 2024.

The latest from Highfield Priory

We were really impressed when one of our Pre-School classmates brought in some 'Stop' and 'Go' signs that he had made at home! ❌ ✅

This inspired us to look around the school to spot all the different signs on the walls, doors and other spaces.

We then thought about how important they were in our day-to-day lives for giving us direction, guidance and, most importantly, keeping us all safe! 😊 😊Photos from Highfield Priory Day Nursery's post

We've been having lots of fun in Pre-School Forest School this February! 🌳 🌳

With new activities like painting, map reading and crafts every day, we also had a great time testing different sledges to see how fast they would go.

Fantastic February Forest fun! 😃 😃Photos from Highfield Priory Day Nursery's post
