Admission of summer born children

Delayed start
Parents/carers of summer born children have the right to request to be considered for delayed entry into reception year until the following academic year. This would place a child outside of the normal (chronological) year group.

For the purposes of school admissions, the Department for Education defines summer born children as those born between 1 April and 31 August each year.

Deferred start
All school places are offered for a September start in the relevant academic year.

Once a school place has been offered for Reception year for the start of the relevant academic year, parents/carers have the right to defer entry until later in the same academic year. This is to be discussed and agreed with the school offered.

The offered place can be held open until the agreed deferred start date. No school place can be held beyond the end of the academic year in which it was offered (e.g. delayed start until the following September).

NB: Children must, legally, be in education no later than the term following their fifth birthday

Please read the above in conjunction with the summer born admission arrangements document on Medway Councils website.
