Return to Our School


All children admitted to the Reception Class join in September, at the start of the academic year. As part of our induction programme for the pupils we adopt a gradual build up towards staying for the full day. When the children start school in September they will stay for the morning only for the first two weeks i.e. they will finish at 12 noon. For the third week they will stay for lunch and go home at 1.20 p.m. From the fourth week they may spend the full day in school and go home at 3.15p.m. If parents wish, they may attend for the morning sessions only during the Autumn Term.

For more information and to apply for a place, please see the Herts County Council website:

A comprehensive induction programme is provided for new Reception parents, to include guidance on how best to prepare their children for starting school.
