Return to Our School


If you decide you would like to apply for a place at our school, you will need to apply through the Admissions department of the Local Education Authority. We do not handle our own admissions or have any influence over who is, or is not, offered a place from Reception to Year 6.  Parents moving to the area are advised to phone the school to discuss admission procedures.

Admissions procedure

The school and Hertfordshire County Council (HCC) operates two separate admission systems for Nursery and Reception. This means that the offer of a place in Nursery does not guarantee a place in school.


Please see below the timeline for Nursery applications.

Monday 26th February 2024 – Nursery applications open

Nursery Application From 2024-25

Thursday 28th March 2024 (4 weeks) – Nursery applications close for on time applications (applications can be accepted at any point after this date, but will be dealt with after on time applications).

Friday 19th April 2024 – Nursery places are offered to families by email

Friday 26th April 2024 – Deadline for families to accept Nursery places in writing (by email is sufficient)

(From 26th April 2024 onwards, we can continue to accept applications and allocate Nursery places to children, based on availability).


Children are accepted into school in the September of the school year they are 5. For more information regarding applying for a place at Westfield Primary School please visit the Hertsdirect website.

In Year Applications

An application to move between schools straight away (or within a few weeks) is known as an In Year application. This is when a child wishes to transfer to another school outside of the usual transfer time, for example because of a change of address.  For more information and to make an In Year Application please refer to the Hertfordshire County Council website using this link In Year Applications website.
