New CRP Process for 2024/25

If you completed a form in the last two years, the process has now been reviewed and updated.  To be considered a priority applicant, Reception and Nursery applications must submit a CRP as well as a Supplementary Information Form (Reception) or an Application Form (Nursery), even if this was submitted for Nursery 2023 or there is a sibling at HJPS. 

All documentation must be supplied either in a PDF format, by post or by hand via our security team.

Hertfordshire County Council opens their portal on Wednesday 1 November – please click here.  Registration with the council is a requirement for all Reception applications.

Appellants will be notified of their hearing date at least 10 school days before the hearing.
