Admissions

 Prospective parents are encouraged to visit the school during the day to see the children happily taking part in a range of everyday activities. An appointment can be made with the office staff to meet the Head Teacher and to be shown round the school or Nursery.

 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 4th November 2019, and the deadline for applications is Wednesday 15th January 2020.  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.

Open mornings are available on the following dates:

Thursday 14th November 2019 @ 9.30am

Monday 25th November 2019 @ 9.45am

Tuesday 7th January 2020 @ 9.45am

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