A copy of the school prospectus can be downloaded here:
Children are admitted to the school according to the admission rules set by the Local Education Authority – Hertfordshire County Council. These admission rules are published on the internet at Herts Direct. Letters are sent out to parents in November by Hertfordshire County Council, informing them of the Application Process. The vast majority of applications now take place online but paper forms are still accepted. More information can be found at Admissions.
All of the applications for all schools are looked at and sorted according to first preferences. If there is over-subscription for any of the schools then rules are applied to determine who goes to which school. The rules are explained in the literature that accompanies the application information and are reviewed annually. Do ask if there is anything that you do not understand as our experience with these matters puts us in a good position to help you. There are rights of appeal against decisions that you are not happy with.
There are new parents’ events in the term before your child starts school where you will have the opportunity to meet staff and ask questions.

Resources for Parents of New Starters
The following resources have been provided by the Links AP Academy.
Along with the support already in place from school, the information leaflet for parents shares ways to develop skills and promote confidence, before their child starts school, for a happy and successful transition into Reception.
The ‘Getting Ready for School’ visual aids support independence and self-care at home. The squares on the pages can be cut out by parents and stuck on an A3 piece of card, or just stuck to a child’s wall/door with blu tack or similar, in the order that they would like their child to complete them – taking out what does not apply. It would be very useful for parents to start using these through the summer holidays!
