Return to Our School

Admissions

Usually, at this point of the year, we would be inviting prospective parents into school to look around our Reception class in preparation for September 2021 admission.  However, due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are unable to offer these tours this year.

As an alternative, we have prepared the following video and slide show.  We hope that this virtual tour provides an insight into life at Newberries and you find it useful.  We wish you luck with the application process.

The following County admission rules apply for Primary schools which have more applications than places available.

Schools admit children up to their annual admission limit. Where there is over subscription priority will be given to:

  • Children in public care.
  • Children for whom it can be demonstrated that they have a particular medical or social need to go to the school.
    A panel of officers from County will determine whether the evidence provided is sufficiently compelling to meet the requirements for this rule.
  • Children who have a brother or sister on the roll of the school, or linked school, at the time of application for admission, unless the sibling is in the final year of the school or linked school, whichever provides for the older children.
  • Children for whom the school is the nearest Community or Voluntary Controlled School.
  • Children who live nearest to the school.

Responsibility for Reception and In -Year admissions currently lies with the Education Authority. Information will be sent from County Hall to your home address during the first term of the school year before your child is due in to school. Parents considering sending their child to the school are welcome to visit by appointment.

Further Information is available at www.hertfordshire.gov.uk/admissions

We would usually welcome you to view our school in person however at the moment we are not able to make plans for any visits due to COVID 19. We will post a presentation on this page in due course. Thank you!
