Request to defer entry to Reception - summer born children
Parents/carers of children born in the summer term, i.e. between 1 April until 31 August, may request that they are admitted outside of their normal age group and start the Reception class a year later.
Parents/carers must submit their request to defer entry through their application which must be submitted no later than 15 January 2022. However, requests received after this date but before the National Offer Day (19 April 2022) may still be considered.
Any requested received after 16 April 2021 will not be considered and it will not be possible to defer entry to school after this date.
