Tudor Primary School

Admissions procedure

The school and Hertfordshire County Council (HCC) operates two separate admission systems for Nursery and Reception. This means that the offer of a place in Nursery does not guarantee a place in school.

Full information on the School Admissions process can be found on the HCC website via the link below. If you have any further questions please contact HCC direct.

Whilst the process is online, we are happy to support you in any way that we can. For example, we can:

  • Provide you with a paper application form;
  • Help you to apply online or do it on your behalf;
  • Support and guide you through the application process.

Nursery Admissions

The next round of admissions for Nursery is September 2018:

The process to apply for a free early education place has changed this year and applications from parents should now be made directly to the Early Years provider of their choice.

The leaflet below explains to parents how to apply for a free early education place (previously known as nursery admissions) for their child. This leaflet, along with a covering letter, is being sent to all parents in Hertfordshire with a child born between 1st September 2014 and 31st August 2015 in week commencing 9th October 2017. A press release has been written and there is also a social media campaign starting in October encouraging parents to visit providers and apply for a place.

Parents are also directed to:  where they can find more information. Please keep an eye on the website for future updates.

If your child was born between 1 September 2014 and 31 August 2015, you will be able to make an application for a nursery school place to start in September 2018.

Children are accepted into Nursery in the September before their fourth birthday. 

Nursery guidance leaflet (Autumn 2017) is available for download at the bottom of this page.

Reception Admissions

Children enter school at the beginning of the Autumn Term. Our annual admission limit is sixty.

Parents are encouraged to make an appointment to visit the school when considering their child’s educational future. Whenever possible, Mr Weightman (Headteacher) will show you around the whole school so you are able to make a fully informed decision. You will also have opportunities to ask questions about how Tudor will meet the educational and social needs of your child.

Parents of registered children will be sent a copy of the booklet ‘Starting School’ containing a Primary School Admission Application Form in the Autumn Term prior to the year of admission. Applications can be done on-line or completed forms returned to the local admissions team where they will be processed and then allocation letters will be sent out to parents early in the Spring Term.

When schools are oversubscribed the rules for admission are applied by Hertfordshire County Council giving priority to children with a statement for Special Educational Needs, those with a brother/sister already at the school, compelling medical or social reasons and children for whom the school is the nearest in relation to alternative schools.

In Year Admissions

An application to move between schools straight away (or within a few weeks) is known as an In Year application. This is when a child wishes to transfer to another school outside of the usual transfer time, for example because of a change of address.
