All the information that you will need to make an application can be obtained from the HCC website at www.hertsdirect.org.

On-line Nursery Application

 

If both parents / single parents are working more than 16 hours at minimum wage (or equivalent) your child is entitled to 30 hours free child care (including 15 hours education). The free hours will be from 8.30am- 3.20 pm.

Notes to parent

How the information on the application form will be used:

By completing this form and signing the declaration you are agreeing for Oak View School, if they are oversubscribed, to check whether your child’s details meet the school’s published admission rules and if he/she can be offered a nursery place.

Any personal data collected will be treated as confidential under the principles of the Data Protection Act 1998. We will not use the data for any other purpose, nor will we share your data with any third parties other than the Department for Education (for statutory reporting), Hertfordshire County Council departments who may from time to time send you advice, guidance and information relating to changes to early years provision and educational services that are relevant and/or of benefit to your child, and your local children’s centre who support the local authority by assisting families to access the services that children are entitled to.

Children who have been adopted from care or are subject to a special guardianship order or a child arrangements order.

Eligibility will be based on your declaration that your child was formally a looked after child and on the evidence of their status e.g. a copy of the relevant order. This form and a copy of the relevant order should be seen by the school and they will confirm with Hertfordshire County Council that they have seen confirmation and enable a place to be offered under this criteria. 

We hope that you find all the information you need but should you have any questions or require further information or help then please contact the school office on 01707 280590 or email us.
