St. Michael’s Admission Policy

As St. Michael’s is a Voluntary Aided school, the admissions policy is set by the Governing Body.

In the case of over-subscription the Governors will assess all applications according to the policy criteria listed in Admission Policy. Please have regard to the relevant notes for each process. The order of receiving applications has no bearing on the categories of admission.

The Reception application process is undertaken in tandem with HCC to simplify the administration. Parents will need to apply online at www.hertsdirect.org/admissions but are also requested to complete the St. Michael’s Supplementary Information Form (SIF) (pink). If a SIF is not completed the Governing Body will apply the school’s admission arrangements using only the information submitted on the HCC application form only, which may result in your application being given a lower priority.

Application to the Local Authority for a Reception place

Anyone interested in a school reception place for their child needs to complete an on-line application form at Hertfordshire L.A (www.hertsdirect.org/admissions) or return the paper copy in the booklet to the Local Admissions & Transport Team – East Division, Farnham House (SFAR109), Six Hills Way, Stevenage, Herts SG1 2FQ.

What happens after the closing date?

The Governors schedule for allocation of places will be synchronised to that for all Hertfordshire L.A. schools. Consequently, the closure date for applications to St. Michael’s will be the same as that announced for all Hertfordshire L.A. schools. The exact timetable for each year will be set out in the Hertfordshire L.A. booklet sent to all parents by the County Council at the appropriate time.

After the closing date for applications the Governors will meet to consider all applications. Parents will be notified whether their application has been successful or not, by letter issued by Hertfordshire L.A. on the date agreed. Parents offered places are asked to respond to the offer within two weeks.
