Starting school and compulsory school age

Most children start school full-time in the September after they turn 4.

If you do not think your child is ready to start school by then, they can start part-way through the year or part time – as long as they are in full-time education by the time they reach ‘compulsory school age’.  Click on the button below for further information:
