Reception children

Find general information on the ESCC website about Summer Born children

Some heads will be approached by parents about requests for delayed entry. Read our useful guidance on delayed admission for summer born children

Please be aware that for consistency if a parent wishes a summer born child to join Reception a year later than usual this process is now called 'delayed entry' rather than 'deferring' or 'deferral'.
