Maintained schools in Hertfordshire are now responsible for the admission to nursery from 2018 onwards. 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 2021-2022 and the nursery application form, which should be completed and returned to the school office. Please note that although there are key dates for Nursery applications, if we have spaces, we are able to admit any child to our nursery at any point in the year.
