Letter about a change to the school admissions code to make sure that summer-born children don't miss a year of school.
A letter from the Minister of State for Schools to:
- local authorities
- admission authorities
It sets out the government’s plan to make a change to the school admissions code. The change would mean that schools can:
- admit summer-born children to reception class at the age of 5, if their parents want this
- make sure the children can stay in this year group as they progress through school
More information about the admission of summer-born children in schools is available.
