Is it possible for my child to start in reception earlier than they should?

Question:
Is it possible for my child to start in reception earlier than they should?
Answer:

We can consider early admission applications at a community or voluntary controlled school if:

  • you make the application at the normal time
  • provide reasons for your request which may include supporting information as to why you consider an exception should be made for your child.

We will consider the evidence provided and consult with the headteacher at the preferred school(s). We will notify you in writing whether or not your application has been successful when the offers are made for Reception places.

Note: if your request is successful, there is no guarantee your child will remain out of year the whole of their time at school. The most appropriate placement for your child will be reviewed by the school on a regular basis.
