To apply for a place please complete the application form below:
Allocation of a Nursery place is strictly subject to the applicant’s guarantee that the first 15 hours of Free Childcare Funding will be directed to this school. This guarantee should be made on the Parent Declaration Form which will be in your welcome pack. Details of the admission policy can be found by clicking the link below:
In the event of more applications than available places the Governing Body will maintain a continuing interest list (waiting list). These and late applications will go onto this list in a position determined by the criteria. If a place becomes available in the school it will be offered to the child that best meets the published admission rules at the earliest possible opportunity.
Information leaflets have been sent to parents by Hertfordshire County Council.
30 Hours Free Childcare for 3 and 4 Year Olds:
This is a new entitlement for working parents of 3 and 4 year old children which will be introduced in September 2017. This is an additional 15 hours per week entitlement in addition to the child’s existing 15 hour free early education place. This new entitlement of 30 hours free childcare can be offered term time only (over 38 weeks) or can be stretched across the whole year to meet parental needs. Windhill21 will be working closely with Early Birds and Night Owls Out of School Care Club and Appletree Pre-School (both of which operate from the school site) to offer this new entitlement for parents.
