Admission to Reception

During the academic year in which a child turns four, parents are invited to apply for a primary school place via the Herts County Council online application system, which normally opens mid-November and closes mid-January of each year. All applications are dealt with by the Hertfordshire County Council.

During the academic year in which a child turns three, parents will receive information from Hertfordshire County Council about how to apply for a place at a local nursery school. The online application system opens in February and closes in March.

Sarratt Church of England School does not have a nursery. However, Sarratt Ducklings Pre School, which is housed on our Early Years site, provides a safe and happy learning environment for children from the age of 2 to 5 years. Ducklings are proud of their achievements and can offer your child:

  • A safe, secure and stimulating environment. Fun and friendship with children and adults.
  • Individual care and attention, made possible by the support of a personal Keyworker.
  • An opportunity to develop at his/her own pace, through a specially tailored curriculum.
  • Early reading and writing skills and recognition of numbers and number concepts.

Ducklings is registered with OFSTED under the 1989 Children Act and is a member of the Pre-School Learning Alliance. It is a non-profit making organisation and received charitable status in 1995 (Reg. Charity No. 1048712).
