Aboyne Lodge Nursery Application Form 2020-2021

Please be aware that completing an application form does not guarantee a place in our Nursery class.

If offered a place in the nursery class, you will still have to apply separately for a place in Reception and follow the Hertfordshire online admission system via the Herts Direct Website

If you intend to defer your child’s entry into Reception and stay in Nursery because your child is summer born (DOB between 1st April and 31st August 2016) the deadline for letting us know is the 27th March 2020.

If you defer entry and remain in our Nursery because your child is younger and have already started in our Nursery you will be given preference on the Nursery option you would like for the following September .

If any option is oversubscribed, spaces will be allocated using the following Herts Admission criteria:

1. Everyone who wants 15 hours will be offered a place

2. If there is over subscription for 15 hour places we will implement the following admission criteria:

  • Looked after child
  • Medical/Social need
  • Social need (as requested by health visitor or social worker)
  • Parents/Carers who work at our school
  • Sibling link
  • Distance to the school using the Distance Measuring Tool
  • Age (if the need arises priority will be given to the older child)
  • Ensuring there is a balance of both girls and boys

In addition, we will offer 30 hour places until all spaces are filled. If over subscribed, the above admission criteria is followed.
