Hertfordshire School Admissions

Nursery Admissions

Nursery admissions are managed by the school. Children will be offered a nursery place to start in the autumn term of the academic year they turn 4 (falling between 1st September to 31st August). At Codicote School  we have 30 nursery places. These are organised into  five morning sessions, providing 15 hours of free nursery education.  From September 2024, the school will be working with Codicote Pre-school, to offer 30 hours, with the children attending Nursery in the mornings and then moving to the Pre-school in the afternoons. 

We hold an information meeting for parents in the summer term. Children are invited to visit the nursery before they start.

The nursery session is from 8.55-11.55

Nursery settings operate their own admission process. Local authority nursery schools and classes within Hitchin form part of the Hitchin Partnership. In order to provide consistency and simplify the process for parents, the partnership has agreed a timeline for admissions and a set of over subscription criteria.

Should there be more applications than places, an agreed over subscription criteria will be followed. If an application is unsuccessful, you may request to go onto the nursery’s continuing interest list and as a space arises, the criteria will be applied again.
