Nursery 2017 (September 2013 – 31 August 2014)

havdallah2Please read the Admissions Policy and Guidelines for entry to the Nursery year at HJPS in September 2017, which are available for download below.  Please note that a place in Nursery does not give application priority for future Reception entry.


The Nursery Admissions Policy states that for those who wish to be considered as priority applicants, the Certificate of Religious Practice for primary schools under the religious authority of the Chief Rabbi (the “CRP”) was to be completed and sent to the school by 15 January 2017.  The Supplementary Information Form was also to be received by 15 January 2017.  These documents are still available for download below for late applicants.

Please ensure a photocopy of all documents are kept for your own records. The CRP is valid for applications to all United Synagogue primary schools and can be used for entry to Reception 2018.  Parents should register with synagogues for this process and liaise with them directly.

Information from Hertfordshire County Council regarding the on-line application process can be found here.  Parents will need to register their Nursery preference with the council, so that the school receives the distance measurements from your address to the school.  Please click here for the poster from Hertfordshire County Council on the online Nursery process.
