Reception Deferal for Summer Born Children

The Governing Board of Newnham St Peter's Primary School acknowledges the updated advice from the Department of Education that parents/carers of "summer born" children (born between 1 April and 31 August) may request to start the Reception Class of a school a whole academic year later. We follow the Local Authority process which states that parents can only apply for a Reception place at a school once and must apply for a place during the standard application process timeline for their chronological year group, stating their reasons for requesting deferred entry to the following year. The Local Academy Committee will decide whether the deferred entry can be approved for the school.

In-Year Transfers

Please contact the school office to enquire and for more information.
