Admission Arrangements

 

NURSERY AND RECEPTION ADMISSIONS

 

At present there are two admission processes, one for Nursery Admissions and one for Primary Admissions. Parents are invited to apply to the school directly for a place in the Nursery Class. Please see the admissions policy for Nursery below. Information is sent to families directly from Herts County Council for Primary Admissions. This explains the admission process in detail, including the admission criteria. The admission process takes place in the academic year prior to the child starting Nursery/Reception Class. There is a single intake in September for both Nursery and Reception classes.

 

Admissions to Reception Class are handled centrally by Hertfordshire County Council; to find out about procedures please click here.

 

Admissions to Nursery are made directly to the school. The application process for admission to nursery for September 2019 will open on the 4th February 2019. Completed application forms can be emailed to nurseryadmissions@boxmoor.herts.sch.uk or sent to the school office.

 

Parents considering applying for either a Nursery or Primary place are warmly encouraged to visit the school prior to application.

Summer Born Children - Entry to Reception

Legally, a child does not have to start school until the start of the term following their fifth birthday. Following guidance issued by the Department for Education on 8 September 2015 the county council has amended its policy for summer born children. Children born between 1 April 2014 and 31 August 2015 are categorised as “summer born” and if parents/carers do not believe that their summer born child is ready to join Reception in 2019 they may delay their application until 2020.

 

These applications will be processed in exactly the same way as all other reception applications received at that time; there is no guarantee that a place will be offered at a child’s preferred school.

 

If parents wish to delay their application for a Reception place they are advised to discuss their child’s needs /development with their current early years or nursery provider. If parents wish their child to remain in their existing nursery school or class for a further year (rather than moving into the Reception year group) they must let their current school know before the end of the Spring term in 2019 (before the Easter break).

 

SECONDARY TRANSFER

 

Secondary Transfer is administered by Herts County Council and the individual Secondary Schools. Primary Schools distribute information. The admission process takes place during Year 6. 'Moving On' booklets are distributed by the Primary School early in September. The booklet will explain the admission process in detail, including the admission criteria. The timetable for Nursery and Primary admissions is currently as follows; precise dates will be given with the application details.
