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 for nursery applications;
  • Help you to apply online or do it on your behalf;
  • Support and guide you through the application process.

Reception Admissions

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

Apply on-line at  or phone 0300 123 4043. The local admissions team at Hertfordshire County Council will be process all applications and then allocation letters will be sent out to parents early in the Spring Term.

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. Please contact the school on 01442 256294, or email

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 the usual transfer time, for example because of a change of address.

Further information on moving schools and how to make an In Year application can be found online at:

Tudor Primary School works alongside other local schools to challenge 'school hopping'. Whilst there may be clear reasons why a family wish to move their between schools in the local area, Headteachers are able to share important information. For example, a meeting may be arranged between the different schools and the family to ensure an effective transition to a new setting.
