Deferred Entry / Summer Born
Compulsory School Age
By law, parents must ensure that their children are receiving suitable full- time education at the beginning of the term after their 5th birthday.
However, in Birmingham, children are admitted to Reception Class in the September at the start of the academic year in which they reach five years of age.
Parents may, however, defer their child’s admission to primary or infant school until later in the school year, but not beyond the beginning of the first academic term after the child’s fifth birthday (the time when the child reaches compulsory school age), and not beyond the beginning of the final term of the school year of which the offer was made.
