Information 

 

Highbury Infant School and Nursery is a community school within the North quadrant of Hertfordshire County Council Education Authority. It occupies an attractive, open, grassed site in a quiet location close to and overlooking the town centre.

Highbury is a single-storey traditionally designed building. It was built in three phases between 1960 and 1967 and has six separate classrooms, a large hall, separate dining hall, computer  suite & library.

The nursery has its own entrance and secure outside play area. It is furnished and equipped to provide a rich learning environment for pre-school children.


Parent Communication

The school operates a system called SchoolComs, which enables letters to be sent home electronically. Please ensure that the office has your current email address.

School Closure

Should there ever be the need to close the school in an emergency or due to severe weather, you will be notified by;

 

  • Email and mobile text (if you have an email address, but have not yet let us know, please give your details to the office)
  • There is a new schools closure notification system which Hertfordshire is now using. You are invited to sign up to receive messages by SMS and email. This is in case the school ever needs to close in an emergency, including severe weather. To sign up, you need to go onto the following link; member.everbridge.net/index/892807736725489

     

    This link will direct you to the “Sign Up” page where you should click “Sign Up” button located at the top right hand side of the page on the grey strip and follow the instructions from there. It should take no more than 5 minutes to register and you can edit your information at any time should you change your mobile number or email.

     

    Each contact within the system can have 2 devices added for each communication type if they wish to, so in addition to adding your own mobile number and email address, you can include the mobile and email address of a partner or a grandparent. They would then receive messages in relation to the school’s closure. Alternatively, they could register themselves. If you have a child at more than one school, you can register for those schools too in a single registration process by selecting schools you have children at.

     

    Once you have signed up, you will receive messages relating to the status of the schools you have indicated.

There are occasions when the volume of schools closed, slows down the notification systems. Please let us know when there is a change to any of your contact details.

Story Club


Story club runs during the end of the Summer term. Please contact the school for the dates. All pre-school children are welcome to attend with their parent/carer. It is not necessary to have a link with the school, but it does provide a good opportunity for children starting in our Nursery or Reception classes to visit us before they begin.
