Heymann Primary & Nursery School

Inspiring and motivating our children
to be the best they can be


Heymann Primary School opened a brand new nursery (Pre-School) in January 2014. The Nursery (pre-school) is in a purpose built classroom in our Infant building and has its own enclosed outdoor play area.

There are many advantages to using our school based nursery:

  • Led by a qualified teacher
  • Supported by well qualified Teaching Assistants
  • Housed in a purpose built room in our new Infant building
  • Outdoor play area with brand-new equipment
  • Access to all the school equipment and facilities – interactive whiteboard, large school hall, sensory room, library.
  • Fully funded places of five 3-hour sessions (15 hours)
  • Access to our school Wrap Around Care services providing child care from 7:30am – 6:00pm
  • Continuous education from 3-11 years (subject to accepted application for a reception place)


Our Nursery

The nursery has 39 places based on 2 sessions per day.  Places are available in the year before your child starts Reception.  A limited number of places may be offered to younger children who are over the age of 3 subject to availability.  On admission parents are asked to choose between 5 morning OR 5 afternoon sessions.  Additionally, we offer wraparound care, enabling your child to stay all day for an additional cost, or with use of the 30-hour funding.  Whenever possible first preference of sessions will be offered, but preferences will be allocated subject to availability and are not guaranteed.


  • The morning session is from 8:30am until 11:30am.
  • The afternoon session is from 12:15pm until 3:15pm.
  • These times fit closely with the main school times:
  • Infants (KS1)  8:40 – 3:10 and Juniors (KS2) 8:50 – 3:20
