Joining Our School
We hope that you feel St John’s Church of England Primary School would be the right choice for your family. We want to welcome you to St John’s and show you the school we have created and what we can offer your child or children.
If you’d like to find out what our current parents think about being part of the St John’s family, you can watch a short video here.
Starting School in September 2019.
The application deadline was 16th January 2019. Any applications received through the County Council’s online system after this time will not be offered a school place until the week commencing 17th June 2019.
National Allocations Day is 16th April 2019. Hertfordshire County Council will email school allocations on this day. If you have applied online, you must accept the place online by 30th April 2019.
If you have been allocated a place at St John’s, please ensure that you accept on or before 30th April 2019 to secure your place.
If you have not been allocated a place at St John’s, we would advise you to accept the place offered so that you are guaranteed a school place. You will then be able to stay on the waiting list for the subsequent 2 rounds of continuing interest. Once the continuing interest process has completed, you would then be able to apply directly to us to join our waiting list.
Please note that schools are instructed not to speak to parents about specific applications on 16th April as all allocations have to be made through the County Council System and the online system will be unavailable for schools on this day until allocations have been made. However, we will be holding a next steps meeting for everyone who applied between allocations day and the deadline to accept a place. In addition, Mrs Moore, our Admissions Lead, is available on 17th April between 8:45am and 3:45pm to answer any admission questions that you may have.
How to apply
We are part of the County Council’s Coordinated Admissions Process. All applications should be made online. The deadline of 15th January 2019 has now passed. Please contact the County Council with any enquiries on how to apply now.

In Year Admissions 18/19
Current vacancy status by Year Group
Year One: YES
Year Two: NO
Places are very limited, therefore you may with to contact the School Office via email@example.com or on 01923 255017 to confirm if places are still available. Please include your child’s date of birth so we can check the relevant year group. If the vacancies have been filled, you can still make an in year application to join our waiting list.
St John’s operates its own waiting list, therefore you should apply direct to our school. Should a place become available, we will allocate it to the first child on our waiting list. Places are allocated according to our oversubscription criteria as contained in our Admissions Policy for 2018/19.
In Year Application forms are available from the school office, or you can download one from this page. They must be physically signed and returned to school with the relevant documents confirming the child’s home address. We will accept applications via email as long as they are a scanned copy of the signed original and the scanned documents are attached. There is no requirement to complete a SIF form for an In Year Application Form.
Starting School in September 2020.
We will be undertaking tours between October and December 2019. Bookings will initially open at the end of the summer term (July) 2019. More dates will be added as and when tours become fully booked. We encourage you to book a tour at the earliest opportunity. We look forward to welcoming you to our school.
The determined admission arrangements and the Supplementary Information Form (SIF) are available on this page.
