Deferred/Delayed Admission to Reception Year
The majority of children start school full-time in the September following their fourth birthday. However, in some cases parents believe that starting part-time or starting later in the school year would be more appropriate for their child, particularly where their child was born prematurely and would otherwise have been due to start school a year later.
Parents can speak to the Family Information Service on 0800 587 8191 for advice and request a meeting with the head of the school where they have been allocated, or are hoping to gain, a place.
In the event of there being more applications for places in reception than the PAN for the 2022/2023 academic year, or more applications than places for any year group during the school year, the following oversubscription criteria will be used to prioritise applications, after the admission of children whose Statement of Special Educational Needs or Education, Health and Care Plan names the school:
- Children in care and children who were previously in care but immediately after being in care became subject to an Adoption, Child Arrangement, or Special Guardianship Order.
- Children with siblings who will still be attending the school at the time of their admission.
- Children who live within the designated area of the preferred school, or whose parents can provide evidence at the time of making the application that they will be living in the designated area of the preferred school by the date from which admission is required. If there are more designated area children wanting places at a school than there are places available, the following criteria 4 to 6 will be used to decide which of these children should have priority for admission. If there are still places available after all the designated area children have been allocated places, criteria 4 to 6 will be used to decide which of the remaining children should have priority for any spare places.
- Children with an unequivocal professional recommendation from, for example, a doctor, school medical officer or educational psychologist or education, that non-placement at the preferred school would not be in the best interest of the child and that the placement at the preferred school is essential. Such recommendations must be made in writing to the School Admissions Team and must give full supporting reasons.
- All other children (using the tie-breakers as defined later in this document as necessary).
