Please read the information given below which gives details of our admission arrangements for the school.
Children are admitted into Nursery and School in accordance with the Hertfordshire County Council admission guidelines. The published admissions number for September 2017 is 60 for Reception and 60 for Nursery.
Parents are sent admission information directly from the local authority during the year preceding entry to Nursery, and again in the year preceding entry into Reception. These booklets give full details of how to apply, the admissions policy, and the deadlines which must be met.
Nursery place allocations will be notified by the school, during the first half of the summer term. All children of Nursery age start as a single intake in September - if parents wish to defer their child’s start until January this must be confirmed in writing so that the place may be held open.
Reception, i.e. full-time school entry, is also, currently, a single intake in September. If you feel your child will not be ready for school at that time, places may be deferred until the start of the term during which s/he reaches compulsory school age. Places must be applied for via the local authority admissions team, who will notify parents of their allocation. Attendance at Strathmore Nursery does not affect admission into school, a separate application must be made.
In-year applications, eg. for children moving into the area, must be made to the Hertfordshire County Council in-year admissions team who may be contacted on 0300 123 4043.
