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:
- Follow the normal application process. See Apply for infant, junior or primary school to find out more.
- 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.
