The campaigners for Flexible Admissions for Summer-born Children have a unique opportunity to present their case to a Dept of Education Minister.
This campaign’s aim is help parents who want their child to begin Reception year aged 5, and not aged 4 (those born between April and August). The law is unclear about this and local authorities and schools often don’t know or misapply it.
The campaign is working toward greater legal clarity for these families and they would like to have your personal experience on record!
Anyone with experience of considering delaying admission for their child to Reception (whether you went through with it or not) is invited to answer.
If you are the parent of a summer born child and in recent years have applied or thought about applying for a Reception class place for your child(ren) when they reach compulsory school age, PLEASE COMPLETE THIS ONLINE SURVEY a.s.a.p.
The more responses we have, the better. Thank you.
