How do I request delayed admission?

We recommend you discuss your request with your preferred schools before applying. 

You will need to complete 2 steps to make a delayed admissions application:

  1. Follow the normal application process. See Apply for infant, junior or primary school to find out more.
  2. At the same time, complete the Application for delayed admission to reception class (summer born child) form [87.6 KB] [docx]. Send a copy of this to the Admissions and Transport team by the closing date. If a preferred school are their own admissions authority they may require you to complete a different form. 

It is for each admissions authority to reach a decision. At local authority controlled schools, a decision will be made on the information provided in consultation with the relevant head teacher.
