delaying a start for summer born children
Most children start school in the September after their fourth birthday, but some children will benefit from a delayed school start, particularly if their school readiness has been delayed by a medical condition or developmental delays.
Teachers understand that children develop at different rates and have different starting points when beginning school. They know some children need more support than others and are trained to adapt their teaching to suit individual children’s needs.
If your child is born in the summer term (April-August) you may wish to consider deferring their place at school. We would recommend reading this guidance for parents which gives clear information and next steps if you feel this is the right thing to do.
