Parents can defer entry for their child until their child is statutory school age. Statutory school age begins the first day of term after your child’s fifth birthday. Parents cannot however defer entry for children born in the summer term for the whole school year. Parents wishing to defer entry must contact the school after advising them on this after a place has been offered. Parent can also request that their child attends part-time until their child reaches statutory school age.
There is no automatic transfer from nursery to reception. Parents must complete a separate application form.
