Hertfordshire County Council coordinates all admissions to the main school – Reception through to Year 6 (this also includes all in-year applications). Our Published Admission Number each year is 60. All the information that you will need to make an application can be obtained from the HCC website at www.hertsdirect.org. The website includes interactive copies of application form booklets and a directory listing all schools with reception classes, junior schools and middle schools in Hertfordshire. We would encourage all prospective parents to make an appointment to view the school.
Nursery admissions are managed by the school. The application process for September 2020 is now closed. If you would like to make a late application please contact the school office to add your name to our waiting list.
New Starter Information (Nursery, Reception and In-Year Admissions – 2020-2021)
Due to the current exceptional circumstances following the Covid-19 pandemic we have been unable to follow our usual transition procedures for new Reception and Nursery children joining Oak View in September 2020.
We have been working hard to adapt our systems and over the coming days we will upload this information in an online format. We know this won’t be the same as visiting the school but we hope that we have covered the information you require and answered any questions you may have.
An admissions form will need to be completed for all new entrants to the school. Please click on the link below to make this return. Then select the other forms and documents that are relevant to your child from the sections below.

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.
Parents must apply online at www.childcarechoices.gov.uk to obtain an eligibility code before a 30 hour place can be confirmed. Applications can be made as early as 16 weeks before your child’s third birthday.
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.
