Return to Our School

Starting at Merry Hill

We know that starting School is a very big step – for parents and children alike!

We are delighted that you are going to be joining us and would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to our Merry Hill community.

Your child is about to start a new and exciting chapter in their education and we are aware it can be an anxious time, so we endeavour to make the transition as seamless as possible for both your child as well as yourself!

When your son/daughter starts school, there are certain documents that need completing, all these documents can be found in the relevant new starter forms boxes below i.e. Nursery or Reception – Year 2.   The deadline for completing the documents is 9am on Friday 28th June.

Please also ensure you read the information in the Starting School Booklet below.

In addition we will require a copy of your child’s birth certificate and a proof of your address.

Uniform can be purchased at any high street store but should you intend to buy uniform from our school supplier, Mapac, where in additional to all your uniform needs, you can get polo-shirts, jumpers and cardigans with our school logo, Mapac recommend you order before 31st July to guarantee delivery for the start of September.

For all the information on school uniform, please follow the link below:

We would kindly ask that everyone completes and returns the school lunch menu. Even if your child would like a packed lunch from home, please use the tick box on the form.  Children must choose  either to have a packed lunch from home or a school meal – they cannot do both.  If your child only eats Halal food we are able to offer a Halal option on Wednesdays so please contact the school office to register your interest.

Please note Nursery children will only need to complete the school lunch form, if your child has additional hours, and you have arranged with the office for your child to have lunch.

If your child has an allergy or a special dietary requirement and you would like them to have a school meal you must first register this with our catering provider – Herts Catering.  Please visit  before ordering school meals.

At Merry Hill we are pleased to offer a breakfast club, where children can play and enjoy a healthy, nutritious breakfast under the supervision of qualified staff.  For more information and the registration form please follow the link below:

Please do take the time to familiarise yourself with our website, particularly the Parents’ Information section which will be updated regularly with details of term dates, uniform, after school clubs, milk and where you will find lots of other useful information.

Finally, we have put together some transition information and School Ready resources and activities to support families and children who will be starting in reception class this September.

If you have any questions please do call the school office or send us an email –

We look forward to seeing your happy faces soon!
