Deferred entry to primary school
If your child's birthday is in January or February, you have a right to choose to put your child's entry to primary school back for one year.
If you wish your child to have an additional year at nursery, you should complete an application for a deferred year. Forms are available from the nursery.
If your child's birthday is September to December and you wish them to be considered for a deferred entry to primary school, you should also complete an application form.
