Admissions

Applying for a place at Sarisbury Infant School

 

All children are entitled to start school in the September after their fourth birthday. By law, children have to be receiving full-time education by the start of the term following their fifth birthday, when they reach compulsory school age.

  • Children born between 1 September and 31 December reach compulsory school age on 31 December and must be receiving full-time education at the start of the Spring term (i.e. after the Christmas holidays, in January).

  • Children born between 1 January and 31 March reach compulsory school age on 31 March and must be receiving full-time education by the start of the Summer term (i.e. after the Easter holidays, in March or April)

  • Children born between 1 April and 31 August reach compulsory school age on 31 August and must be receiving full-time education at the start of the new school year (i.e. after the summer holidays, in September).

 

Parents of non-compulsory school age children (four year olds) may request a pattern of part-time attendance or deferment if that best suits the needs of their child. Parents will make decisions based upon the needs of their child, in consultation with the school and any pre-school settings involved.

Parents of ‘summer born’ children (those born between 1 April and 31 August) only, who  not feel they are ready to begin school before they reach compulsory school age may request approval for their child to start school in Year R a year after the point at which they could first have been admitted.
