We are currently running a consultation process regarding changing the age range of children at Highfield Academy from 3-11 years to 2-11 years.
The provision proposed will be for eight places for 2 year-olds – these places will be for children eligible for 15 hours of free early education or to parents/carers who wish to pay themselves for this.
The aim of our Early Years provision is to prepare children for school readiness. The two year old provision will be part of the academy’s current nursery.
We would like to hear the views of everyone associated with the academy. This includes children, parents and other local nurseries and childminders.
The consultation period will run until 24 May 2021.
