The School Admissions Code includes the requirement for parents to be offered a place in Reception from the September after their child’s 4th birthday, i.e. a single intake into Reception class. Parents can request a part-time place in reception until their child reaches compulsory school age (the term after 5th birthday) and can also defer the place offered until later in the school year.
Applications for Reception places are made online at www.hertfordshire.gov.uk/admissions

We will be conducting tours of Reception for prospective parents during November and December 2022 and January 2023. Dates will be confirmed shortly. Please contact the school office to book an appointment.
Please note that attendance at 4 Year Old Nursery does not guarantee a place in the Reception class. You must make a new application for a place in Reception class even if your child is currently attending the school’s 4 Year Old Nursery class.
If you do not have internet access at home you can use the internet at your local library or Children’s Centre for free. Your local Children’s Centre will be pleased to help you apply.
