Nursery 2021 (1 September 2017 – 31 August 2018)

HOME_DatesTimes2Please read the Admissions Policy and Guidelines for entry to the Nursery year at HJPS in September 2021, available for download below.  Places for September 2021 are due to be allocated w/c 1 February 2021.



Hertsmere Jewish Primary School has worked with the Office of the Chief Rabbi and the United Synagogue as part of a group application to vary our admission arrangements for the 2021/22 academic year. A revised, interim Certificate of Religious Practice (CRP) form has been submitted to the Education Skills and Funding Agency (ESFA) as part of this application. The ESFA is currently processing an exceptionally large number of similar applications from schools across the country as a result of Covid-19. We have not yet received notification that our application to vary our admission arrangements by using this revised CRP form has been approved. However, we know that some schools using the same form have had their application approved. The CRP process would, in a regular year, have commenced at the start of May. Therefore, in order to allow parents sufficient time to complete the requirements of this interim CRP form, and having taken legal advice, Hertsmere Jewish Primary School has taken the decision to publish the form in advance of formal confirmation from the ESFA so that parents/carers are informed of the requirements necessary to establish faith priority for admission to the school.

Please note that a place in Nursery does not give application priority for Reception 2022 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”) is to be completed (see below).  The Nursery application form is available for download below.

The CRP is valid for applications to all United Synagogue primary schools and can be used for entry to Reception 2021.  Parents should register with synagogues for this process and liaise with them directly.

Downloadable forms for information and/or completion.   PDF applications of documentation (and not pictures or photographs of paperwork) are accepted via email and via post.  Please ensure a photocopy of all documents is kept for your own records.
