Nursery Admissions Information

Harvey Road School is a non-selective maintained school that works in close partnership with Hertfordshire County Council.

As a one form entry school we have a very professional, yet family oriented approach to supporting your child.  At Harvey Road School we understand the need for children to learn in a caring, safe and challenging environment that reflects our school motto:  Be Happy; Show Respect; Seek Success.

Children from the age of 3 upwards can join our Nursery and explore the many unique and wonderful learning opportunities through play and learning together.  Our child-centred approach ensures that every child receives the support and encouragement they need to succeed through exploring our wonderful facilities and wide range of resources available.

Our experienced Nursery team, led by a full time and fully qualified teacher, plan and deliver a range of bespoke experiences that link very effectively with our Reception class to ensure that our expectations, practices and relationships are consistent, so leading to a calm, happy and effective transition into our Reception class.

Children attend our Nursery every day from 9.00am to 12.00pm. We also offer afternoon sessions from 12-3.15pm 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. For those parents needing wraparound care, nursery aged children can also attend our Breakfast and Afterschool clubs.

We have vacancies in our Nursery for 2021-22. Please call the school office for more details or to apply.

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.

Reception Admission Information

For information relating to joining Harvey Road School from Reception Class to Class 6, please see the following website:


Class sizes are strictly held at 30. This ensures that children have sufficient space to work and receive the level of care and support that enables them to achieve their potential. Going above 30 places in each class becomes counterproductive as it adversely affects all children.

If a vacancy becomes available then we can accept applications for In year admissions. Please click on the link below:
