Admission of summer born children

All parents (including those whose children are summer-born) are expected to apply for and take up a reception place in the school year in which their child will reach the age of five (rising fives). All children are entitled to a full time place in the September following their fourth birthday. However, the legal starting age for full time education is the start of the term following the child’s fifth birthday.

For further information, please download the guidance on the deferment and offsetting of children (Word document).
