Nursery Admissions Information 2018-19

Following changes at Hertfordshire County Council, schools with Nurseries are now responsible for their own admission arrangements. Parents wishing to apply for a Nursery place at our school for September 2018 will need to fill in the application form below and hand it to the school office.

Nursery Admission Criteria 2018-2019

Nursery Application Form


Applications open: Monday 4th February 2019
Applications close: Friday 15th March 2019, 9.00am
Places offered to parents: Monday 25th March 2019
Deadline for parents to accept place: Friday 5th April 2019

Our Nursery runs from 9.00am to 12.00noon.  From September 2018, we will also be able to offer an afternoon session from 12noon-3.15pm under the 30 hours free childcare scheme for qualifying parents.  If you do not qualify for the scheme but are looking for afternoon sessions in addition to the morning, then this will be available for a cost of £15 per session.   Applications for these places will open when nursery offers are made.


We have a single intake each year with all 30 children being phased in during the first week in September. Our rule of thumb is to invite our youngest children to join first, giving them the best opportunity to settle in to school life before the older children join them.

Further information

If you have any questions about Nursery admissions or need assistance with the application form, please contact Nicola Boichat, PA to Headteacher on 01923 773801. Paper copies of the form are also available from the school office.

Shining Stars

Shining Stars Club takes place every school day afternoon and therefore offers a continuous child care service from 9.00am to 3.15pm for our parents. The cost for 2017-18 is £15.00 per afternoon.  Children bring their own packed lunch which they eat together and there is time to explore a huge range of resources through play during the afternoon session. This service offers a lovely social as well as educational experience for the children and helps them to make friends. For more information regarding the Shining Stars Club please contact the school office.
