From September 2011 all primary schools must offer children a full-time place at the start of the September term. However, legally children do not have to be in full-time education until the term after their 5th birthday. Delaying your child’s entry into school is called ‘deferred entry’. You can request this, but your child must start before the end of the school year during which they turn 5. The expectation is all those starting in September will attend full days but if you are a parent of a summer born child and have concerns over full school days please talk to us.
In year admissions 2019-2020
As a developing school, HA does have limited vacancies in various year groups for this academic year. Parents who would like to make a visit are asked to telephone Kathryn Jackson, our Office Manager, to make an appointment to meet the Head and to see the school in action.
Pupil numbers per class are determined by the Trust Board as the Admitting Authority.
International parents, planning to move to Harpenden during the year are welcome to arrange a Face Time or Skype interview with the Headteacher via our Office Manager.
For transfer appeals, Hertfordshire parents can access the online system via their admissions account. Parents who live out-of-county or who applied on paper should now 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.
For In Year appeals, parents will also use our appeals online system.
Please be aware that parent guidance for Herts County Council appeals is found solely on the HCC web pages now. There is no longer a published document.
