Reception 2020 (1 September 2015 – 31 August 2016)

Please read the Admissions Policy and Guidelines for entry to the Reception year at HJPS in September 2020, available for download below.

The Reception 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.

4 November 2019 – you can apply for a primary school with Hertfordshire County Council, to start in September 2020.  Under 11s 2020 leaflets were posted to families by the council on 1 November 2019 for Reception age children in Hertfordshire applying for September 2020.

15 January 2020 – is the deadline for on time applications, to include the school’s Supplementary Information Form and CRP.

16 April 2020 – is the National Allocation Day for Reception 2020.

The CRP is valid for applications to all United Synagogue primary schools, starting with synagogue attendance in May 2019.  It is important to keep a photocopy of all your documentation for your own records.

If a CRP was submitted with a Nursery 2019 application, a photocopy of that document is acceptable for Reception 2020 entry.  Otherwise, parents should register with synagogues for CRP points and liaise with them directly.

Applications via a PDF of documentation (not photographed images) are accepted via email, as well as by post.
