Admissions

Admissions

 Under the current arrangements the LEA requires parents to make a new application for admission to the main school’s Reception Class even if the child already has a place in the Nursery.

Reception (Primary) Admissions

For admission to the Reception Class parents will receive information from the Admissions Department at County Hall approximately one year before the expected year of admission. Parents are encouraged to apply on-line at www.hertfordshire.gov.uk/admissions.  You can request an application form from the Admissions Department at Hertfordshire County Council if you are unable to apply on line.  The Admissions Department at County Hall process the applications and inform parents of their allocated school on-line and by post.

The applications process opens on 1st November 2021, and the deadline for applications is Wednesday 15th January 2022.  Please ensure that applications are made before the deadline as you are unlikely to be offered a place at your preferred school if you apply late

In the Reception Class, children are admitted in September in the school year in which they have their fifth birthday.

Reception Prospective Parent Visits will take place on 1st October, 6th October, 15th October, 20th October, 22nd October, 3rd November, 18th November, 3rd December & 10th January.

Please phone the school office on 01920 464135 or email admin@priorswood.herts.sch.uk to book a place.

If you have a query regarding applications please contact the school office, or you may contact  the Admissions Department at County Hall directly on 0300 123 4043

If your appeal is heard during the autumn or spring term, we'll normally inform you of the result within 5 working days from your hearing.

During the summer term, decisions can take much longer because many appeal hearings take place then. Schools may have several days of appeals hearings. We'll write to you within a few days of the decision being made, notifying you of the outcome. We'll follow this up around 2 weeks later with the reasons for the panel's decision.

Please contact School Appeals Team for more details school.appeals@hertfordshire.gov.uk
