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

Making An Application

If you live in Hertfordshire, you must use the In Year application form available at 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.
