Delaying your child’s School Place (for Summer born children only)

Children born between 1 April and 31 August are regarded as Summer born children.

In exceptional circumstances, Summer born children may be admitted to school in a different year group. This is usually due to concerns in relation to a child’s development.

If you would like to request for your ‘Summer born child’ to start school outside of their normal age group, and be admitted to reception rather than Year 1, please read the Delayed Admission Information leaflet for further guidance and advice and information on how to make a request and the evidence required to support your application.
