It’s (about) time/high time (that)

->We use it’s (about) time + past tense to say that something should be happening and isn’t:

-It’s time we left. (We aren’t leaving and we should be.)
-It’s about time you paid a visit to your grandparents. (You should visit them.)

->It’s high time is slightly more emphatic:
It’s high time that the voice of the people was heard in this House. (Their voice isn’t being heard and it should be.)

->We cannot use a negative after it’s (high/about) time:

-It’s time we didn’t stay.  (wrong)
-It’s time we left.  (correct)

->We can also use it’s time for + object + to + infinitive:
->We’d better open the gates now. It’s time for the guests to arrive.

->If we are referring to ourselves or the person we are speaking to we can also use it’s time + to + infinitive:
-It’s time to leave.
-I’m afraid it’s time to put your books away now, children.
