Changing your child's year group

The majority of children will start full-time education and remain within the year group appropriate to their chronological age throughout their education; however we recognise that a small number of children may require consideration for education provision that may better meet their needs outside of their year group.

The decision to either delay entry to school or to educate in a year group outside of chronological age requires careful consideration of the individual circumstances of the child. 

This document provides advice and guidance in relation to summer born children who may be considered for delayed entry to a Buckinghamshire school or any child who may be considered for education within a year group outside of their chronological age, as well as providing useful links to other sources of additional information.
