If you would like your child to attend our school, please see full details of our admission arrangements below. 

You are very welcome to come and have a look round the school. Please ring the school office on 01442 822364 to make an appointment. 


Application should be made via the Hertfordshire County Council on-line system.  Our first priority is to offer places to children in care (looked after children) or previously looked after children.  Following this, places will be offered to children whose older brothers and sisters will still be attending the school. Priority will then be given to children living within the bounds of the Parish.


Children starting in September will be admitted full time after a two week settling in period. There will be flexibility for part-time attendance; we will extend the settling in period should individual children require this. This will be by arrangement with parents/carers, in consultation with the Head teachers and class teacher. 


A Supplementary Information Form only needs to be completed if you are applying under the Category 3 criteria in our Admission Policy.

Transfer appeals


Hertfordshire parents access the online system via their admissions account.  Parents who live out-of-county or who applied on paper should use our appeals online system and will need to contact our Customer Service Centre on 0300 123 4043 in order to obtain their registration details to gain access.


In Year appeals


Parents should use the appeals online systemTo make this work, you must notify the Local Authority’s Admissions and Transport team every time you consider an application in one of these ways:


  • log into SEAM and complete the ‘Submit Notification’ form, or
  • Email the admissions officer for your school


On receipt of that notification, the Admissions and Transport team will send the parents their registration details so they can create an account and lodge an appeal.  Please note that if you receive a direct application and do not inform admissions, parents will not be able to appeal online. 


NB If all your applications are dealt with centrally by the Admission Transport team, you do not need to notify admissions in this way.
