 Admissions:

Nursery Admissions:

Admission to our Nursery Class is co-ordinated by the School. Parents are asked to apply on line once the system goes live, usually in the February prior to the academic year the children will start.

Once the on-line system closes we will offer places to 60 children using the Hertfordshire criteria below.  We will continue to offer places in criteria order until all 60 places are accepted.  We will then allocate morning and afternoon places according to our Nursery Admissions Policy. We are unable to offer 30 hours Nursery provision currently and will continue to offer just 15 hours over 5 days.  Please follow the link to the policy below for further information.

The on-line application system for September 2017 has now closed. We do have vacancies for September 2017. You will need to complete a paper application. Please contact the school or come in and collect one during school opening hours.

This will be for children born between 1st September 2013 and 31st August 2014.

Please click here for our Nursery admissions policy.

 

Reception Admissions:

Admissions to our Reception Class are co-ordinated by the Admissions and Transport Team at Hertfordshire County Council. Parents are asked to apply on line once the system goes live, usually in the November prior to the academic year the children will start. The Admissions Team will allocate places using the criteria below. If parents are unsuccessful in obtaining a place with us they can ask to remain on a continuing interest list should another parent decline their offer. The process for Reception admissions is lengthy and unfortunately we are unable to advise you on the status of your application during the process.

The on-line system has now closed for September 2017. You will need to contact Hertfordshire Admissions Team if you would like a Reception place for September 2017.

This is for children born between 1st September 2012 and 31st August 2013.

In-year Admissions:

In- Year Admissions, should you be moving into the area or are considering changing school, are co-ordinated by the Admissions and Transport Team at Hertfordshire County Council. Parents are asked to apply on line using the ‘in-year’ application form. If we have no vacancies you will remain on a waiting list. Places are offered using the criteria below. The Admissions Team will write to you to offer you a place when one becomes available. If you want to accept the offer of the place you need to contact us to arrange a date for your child to visit and start.

Reception Entry and Summer Born Children:

Schools are required to admit children to their Reception Class in the September following the child’s fourth birthday. Recent guidance from the Minister of State for Schools, Nick Gibb MP, has indicated that the government intends to amend the School Admissions Code to allow summer born children to be admitted to the Reception Class at age five if this is the parents’ choice. Summer born children are those born between 1 April and 31 August. Currently summer born children are expected to start reception at the age of four. In anticipation of this change to the school Admissions Code, which will require public consultation, Hertfordshire County Council has amended its policy regarding summer born children.

  • If your child was born between 1 April and 31 August 2013, and you do not believe they will be ready to start reception in September 2017, you may defer and instead make an application for your child to start reception in September 2018.

 

Criteria:

Section 324 of the Education Act 1996 requires the governing bodies of all maintained schools to admit a child with a statement of special educational needs that names their school. Schools must also admit children with an EHC (Education, Health and Care) Plan that names the school. If there are fewer applications than places available at a school all applicants will be admitted.

Rule 1. Children looked after and children who were looked after, but ceased to be so because they were adopted (or became subject to a child arrangements order or a special guardianship order).

Rule 2. Medical or Social Needs Children for whom it can be demonstrated that they have a particular medical or social need to go to the school.

Rule 3. Linked School In the case of junior schools, children who attend the linked infant school at the time of their application. (A list of all linked infant and junior schools is on page 25)

Rule 4. Sibling Children who have a sibling on the roll of the school or linked school at the time of application. This applies to reception through to year 5 in infant, junior and primary schools; and from reception through to year 3 in first schools; and from year 5 to year 7 in middle schools.

Rule 5. Nearest School Children for whom it is their nearest community or voluntary controlled school or an own admitting school or academy using Hertfordshire County Council’s admission rules. (A list of all academies and foundation schools included in this definition of “nearest” is on page 24) Rule 6. Distance Children who live nearest to the school. (Children not considered under Rule 5 will be considered under Rule 6).

School uniform:

The school colours are burgundy and white. We expect all children to wear school uniform. This consists of school sweatshirt, white shirt or blouse, grey trousers or skirt. In the summer school polo shirts or checked/striped summer dresses in the school colours can be worn.  We are also happy for chlidren to wear a plain, white polo shirt, without the school logo.

A PE kit of black shorts, burgundy top and a pair of trainers, must be kept at school Monday – Friday. Further details about clothing and PE kits are listed in the school brochure. Nursery children do not require PE kit.
