School Admissions

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic the Governors are currently requesting an in-year variation for the admission policies from the OSA and below is the proposed amended policy with the change high-lighted in yellow. The request is being submitted and the variation will only be definitive once the OSA has approved it.

Parents of prospective pupils are encouraged to visit the school.   Appointments can be made through the school secretary.  Please call our school office on 01279 842626 to arrange.

Applications for entry to Reception in September 2020 are now closed.

As we are a Voluntary Aided school, the Governing body of the school is the Admission Authority.

The Governors will admit up to the Admission Number of 30 children into the Reception class.

Hertfordshire County Council (HCC) operates an agreed co-ordinated admissions scheme in line with government legislation. HCC will coordinate the process on behalf of the school according to the scheme published each year. The Governing Body, as the Admission Authority, will allocate the available places in line with our Reception Admissions Policy.

Information on completing the ‘on line’ application and notification dates of admission decisions are published in the HCC Admissions literature which is available from the HCC website.

Parents and carers are also requested to complete our Supplementary Information Form (SIF) which can be downloaded below and return it to the school office by the above closing date.  If a SIF is not completed the Governing Body will apply their admission arrangements using the information submitted on the Application Form only, which may result in the application being given a lower priority.

In Year Admissions (changing schools during the school year)

Parents wishing to apply for a school place should complete the School’s application form available from the School Office or this website.

Fair Access

St Andrew’s C of E Primary School and Nursery is committed to taking its fair share of vulnerable children who are hard to place, in accordance with the locally agreed protocol.  This could be above PAN and before any children on the continued interest list.

Children who have a Statement of Special Educational Needs or Educational Health and Care Plan which names this school will be admitted to St Andrew’s C of E Primary School and Nursery.
