Summer-borns starting Reception

This is great news for some children...although it says authorities need to take immediate action. I wonder how long it will actually take, as surely it will have a knock on effect to the nurseries that will keep them for the year?

Over the years I have had to fight tooth and nail to "back year" children with complex SEN. The LA have really hated doing it their biggest argument being that it could result in children being able to leave school without taking their GCSEs because they won't have reached the correct year group to take their GCSEs by the time they reach school leaving age.

 

Parents have always had the threat that even if a child is "back yeared" they could be bumped back up a year once in school.

 

Until the powers that be address the "what happens if" question regarding school leaving age and taking of exams further up the educational food chain then no consisten proper plan will ever be in place.

 

I hate to sound like an old fuddy duddy but things seemed to work a bit better when we had staggered intakes during the reception year rather than this mass hoovering up for September starters
