When will my child start school?

Most children start school in the September following their fourth birthday. However, by law a child does not have to start school until the term following their fifth birthday.

All reception age children are offered full time places when they start primary or infant school.

If parents want their child to attend part time from September or to defer entry until later on in the academic year, they must contact the school directly to arrange this.
