Thank you for considering our school for your child. We know that choosing the right school can be a difficult decision. 


As we are unable to safely welcome families for tours of our school we have created two videos for you to watch.  The first one is a video about our whole school community and the second one is an EYFS virtual tour. We hope you enjoy both.  


If you have not yet registered your interest, please follow the link above and let us know if you would like to join us. 


Please explore our website to find out more about us and see how we create an engaging and safe environment to support our children in reaching their potential.  


We're sure you'll have lots of questions - please read our FAQ sheet below which will hopefully give you lots of useful information.  If you would like to ask us something you haven't read about, please call us on 01923 855631 or email 


Admissions for School Year 2022-23: Criteria for demonstrating Jewish Practice

Applicants may either attend a service either in a synagogue or online, depending on availability.  Please contact your synagogue direct for confirmation and advice on how to get your Certificate of Religious Practice (CRP) signed.


Please refer to the admissions policy for full details.


Please download a copy of our CRP which details how many visits are necessary, depending on your application criteria.



Admissions for School Year 2021-22: Criteria for demonstrating Jewish Practice


The current restrictions on public worship present problems regarding the arrangements in our published Admissions Policy for the school year September 2021 -2022.


The information below, which should be read in conjunction with that Policy, sets out how governors will assess which applicants will count as “Priority 1 Sibling” in the over-subscription criteria.


The following provisions, additional to what is in the policy, will apply for this calendar year only:


  1. Applicants with a sibling in Reception – Year 6 who have previously accepted a place at Clore Shalom as a Priority 1 applicant do not need to provide new evidence of Jewish practice.  The practice of the family as verified on the previous application will be deemed not to have changed.
  2. For other Priority 1 applications, virtual attendance at synagogue services, as officially verified by that synagogue, will be deemed equivalent to attendance in person. If your synagogue is unable to confirm your attendance, you should take a screenshot of any services attended, preferably with family members next to the screen and show the date that the photo was taken.  These photos should be sent together with your Certificate of Religious Practice - please do not send in individual photos as we are not able to allocate them to your application if not sent in together.  If you are unable to send your CRP to your synagogue for signature, again please keep photographic evidence.


These provisions apply to all new applications made by 15 January 2021 for  Reception for September 2021. They may be extended or amended beyond that date by decision of the Governing Board. They do not affect any arrangements put in place by other traditions in relation to “Priority 2” applications.


This information, and any subsequent extensions or alterations, will be published on the school website, communicated to Hertfordshire County Council, and sent to relevant stakeholders.


Agreed by the Clore Shalom Governing Board at its meeting on 14 July 2020
