The consultation on Hertfordshire's proposed school admissions arrangements for 2019/20 closed on 5 January 2018.

We're currently considering consultation responses and the final admissions arrangements will be determined by 28th February and published by 15th March 2018.

Hertfordshire County Council’s proposed school admission arrangements for 2019/20

We're proposing the following changes to our admission arrangements for 2019/20:

  1. In the oversubscription criteria for first, infant, primary, junior and middle schools the wording and definition of ‘Rule 5 - Nearest School’ is amended to include all schools and academies (regardless of status) unless that school or academy prioritises applications and allocates places on the basis of faith.
  2. Reference to the Shared Anti-Fraud Service is added to the definitions section in cases of fraudulent address verification.
  3. The Published Admission Number (PAN) at Watton-at-Stone Primary and Nursery School is reduced from 34 to 30.

As required by the School Admissions Code, we'll also be consulting the governing bodies of all community and voluntary controlled schools where the school’s published admission number (PAN) is proposed to remain the same or increase.


The following arrangements have not been amended but are provided for information:
