Reception 2019 (1 September 2014 – 31 August 2015)

Please read the Admissions Policy and Guidelines for entry to the Reception year at HJPS in September 2019, available for download below.


The Reception 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”) is to be completed and sent to the school, with the Supplementary Information Form.  These documents are available for download below. Additionally, an on-time application must be made with Hertfordshire County Council.

5 November 2018 – you can apply for a primary school with Hertfordshire County Council, to start in September 2019.

15 January 2019 – is the deadline for on time applications, to include the school’s Supplementary Information Form and CRP.

The CRP is valid for applications to all United Synagogue primary schools, starting with synagogue attendance in May 2018.  It is important to keep a photocopy of all your documentation for your own records.

If a CRP was submitted for a Nursery application, a photocopy of that document is acceptable for Reception 2019 entry.  Otherwise, parents should register with synagogues for CRP points and liaise with them directly.


15 January 2019 is the deadline for Reception 2019 applications.  Applications via a PDF of documentation (not photographed images) are accepted via email, as well as by post.
