Admission Arrangements

Our Pupil Admission Number is currently 60.  We endeavour under the terms of Hertfordshire’s Local Education Authority’s admission policy to accommodate children from within our local area wherever possible.   Hertfordshire Local Authority is responsible for the allocation of places in schools for children of primary school age.  Children join our Nursery class in the September before their fourth birthday.  They join the Reception class in the September before their fifth birthday.  If you would like to apply for a place outside the normal admission times then click HERE which will take you to  Hertfordshire County Council In Year Admission applications.

 

Arrangements for the admission of pupils with disabilities

In order that children who have a disability may be catered for, the school seeks advice from the Local Authority regarding the admission of such pupils. The school will endeavour to make any necessary arrangements in full consultation with the parents and any other agencies involved. It may be necessary in some cases for specialised equipment to be purchased, support staff to be employed, and minor adaptations to be made to buildings and furniture. These will need to be done in consultation with the Local Authority, and may take some time to implement.

 

Steps to prevent disabled pupils being treated less favourably than other pupils

The school’s Accessibility Plan sets out the Governors’ response to the Special Educational Needs and Disability Act 2001 which requires that a pupil should not be treated less favourably because of a disability. The current plan is available from the school office and will eventually be available on the school web site.

 

Existing facilities to assist access to the school by pupils with disabilities

  • Disabled lavatory in both Phase One and Phase Two buildings.
  • Wheelchair access is available to both buildings.
  • Skills Room for Intervention Programme and Special Educational Needs teaching

Future policies for increasing access to the school by pupils with disabilities

The Governor’s Accessibility Plan and School Disability Scheme outline future plans for increasing provision for children with disabilities. School policies are available from the school office.
