Federation with Greenfield Nursery School

Moving towards the federation

We are very excited about the planned federation with Greenfield Nursery School. Plans are starting to be drawn up for greater working together in the New Year as we move towards April 1st when we will formally federate. 


We very much want to ensure our parents and carers are on this journey with us. If you have any thoughts and suggestions about how we could use the joined up working with Greenfield to ensure your children have the best possible start and ongoing education across the two schools, please do let us know by emailing us at 



The governing boards of Greenfield Nursery and Hurst Drive Primary have recently informed you of their proposal to form a Federation between the two schools. The schools have worked closely together for a number of years and the formalisation of this through a federation is, we believe, in the best interests of the children and staff in both schools.


The governing boards at each school had a consultation with parents, staff and other stakeholders (such as Hertfordshire County Council) on the formation of a federation between the schools – a federation that would be led by a single governing board.


The consultation process began on 9th September 2022 and closed on 23rd October 2022 at midnight.


The governing boards are delighted to inform you that there was no significant dissent or legal challenge from the consultation and therefore the two schools will federate on the 1st April 2023 and from this date there will be one responsible body who will govern both schools within the Federation.


If you have difficulty with the language in this consultation letter, please let us know and we will provide additional help.
