Admissions Arrangements



Maintained schools in Hertfordshire are now responsible for the admission to nursery in 2018-2019 onward. Schools are working together to ensure the process is the same in each school and that parents receive consistent information that will enable them to make informed decisions about their preferred nursery school.

Please see below for Micklem Primary School's nursery admission policy for 2018-2019 and the nursery application form, which should be completed and returned to the school office.


We encourage parents to visit the school prior to making an application, if you would like to arrange a visit please contact the school office.

Primary School


Parents of children coming up to school age will receive a booklet from Hertfordshire County Council, which contains information as to how to apply for a primary school place.

Applications for primary and in year admissions can be made on line at or by contacting the admissions team on 0300 123 4043.


All responsibility for admission to our school lies with Hertfordshire County Council, so our Headteacher will not be able to give you a firm offer of a place.  The up to date admissions criteria set by Hertfordshire County Council can be found on the link below. 

If you are considering applying for a place for your child at Micklem Primary School and would like to visit the school to look round the premises, please contact the school office, and we will arrange an appointment for you.
