IN YEAR ADMISSIONS
In Year Admissions Coordination (for Reception to Year 4)
What is an In Year admission?
An In Year admission is when a child already attends a school but wishes to transfer to another school outside of the usual transfer time, for example because the child is moving to a new address. These transfers take place during the academic year, which is why they are referred to as In Year admissions. Millfield First & Nursery School will continue to take part in In Year co-ordination through Hertfordshire County Council.
Full details of the In Year admissions process is available online at www.hertsdirect.org/admissions
Making An Application
If you live in Hertfordshire, you must use the In Year application form available at www.hertsdirect.org/admissions to apply for all schools including voluntary aided and foundation schools and academies. If you live outside Hertfordshire, you should also apply to Hertfordshire County Council.
The In Year application form available online is editable so you are able to complete it electronically and submit it to Hertfordshire County Council by email. Alternatively, you can print the form to fill in by hand and post back to Hertfordshire County Council. You must also ask your child's current school to complete and return Part A - this is also editable and can be completed by the school and submitted by email.
Hertfordshire County Council aim to respond to applications within 10 working days.
It will not always be possible to offer you a place at the school you want for your child. Admission arrangements decide which children get a place when there are more applications than places available.
Further details are also available online www.hertsdirect.org/admissions. For any further guidance please contact the Customer Service Centre on 0300 123 4043.
Please contact the School directly regarding Nursery In Year Admissions.
NURSERY ADMISSIONS FOR SEPTEMBER 2020
Parents of children born between 1st September 2016 and 31st August 2017 can apply for their nursery place start in September 2020 from 4th November 2019. The application process has changed from previous years and an application must now be made direct to the School.
|Applications Open||Applications Close||Nursery Places Offered||Deadline to Respond|
|4th November 2019||15th January 2020||14th February 2020||28th February 2020|
From September 2018 our Nursery cohort increased to 52 spaces.
We have one intake for Nursery in September and your child will attend either a morning or afternoon session. A preference may be expressed on the application form but this is not guaranteed.
Nursery session times are term time Monday to Friday 8:50am to 11:50am and Monday to Friday 12:10pm to 3:10pm, totalling 15 hours of free early education. We recommend attending five sessions per week.
There are a limited number of wraparound care places available and this provision can be either funded by 30 hour funded provision and/or fee paying. The times of the two sessions available for this provision are: Monday to Friday 11:50am to 1:20pm or 11:50am to 3:05pm. Requests for this provision should be indicated on the Nursery application form. Wraparound care provision is not guaranteed. You will be contacted as soon as possible by Little Stars to confirm arrangements. Should you have any questions regarding the provision (not to request a place) please contact Millfield Little Stars direct in the first instance. They can be contacted via the School Office.
Flexible wrap around care provision is also available as follows and enquiries for these places should be made direct to Millfield Little Stars. They can be contacted via the School Office.:
- Breakfast Club (from 8:00am Monday to Friday)
- Fun Club (3:15pm to 5:15pm Monday to Thursday and 3:15pm to 4:15pm on a Friday)
- Holiday Club (during school holidays)
Click to open application form. A paper copy of the application form may also be obtained from the School Office. Completed forms must be returned to Millfield First & Nursery School and an acknowledgement of receipt obtained. Being offered a Nursery place is not a guarantee for obtaining a Reception place. A separate application must be made at the appropriate time for a Reception place.
Places will be allocated in accordance with the oversubscription criteria if there are more applications made than spaces available. Click to view Nursery Admissions Oversubscription Criteria for 2020/2021.
Any application received after the 15.01.20 at 3:00pm will be treated as a late application and processed on 28.02.20.
We will hold a waiting list and places will be allocated, if and when available, according to the oversubscription criteria against the waiting list at the time a place becomes available.
We will use Google maps as a measuring tool to measure home-school distance measurements as measured in a straight line.
There is no appeal procedure for Nursery admissions and, therefore, any complaints would be managed using the complaints procedure.
Visits to our Nursery are most welcome and can be arranged by contacting the School Office on 01763 271717. Please do not hesitate to contact us should you require any assistance with your application.
