When to apply for a primary school place

In Surrey your child is able to start school at the beginning of the school year following their fourth birthday, although they are not legally required to be in education until the start of the school term following their fifth birthday. You may ask for your child to start school full or part time, or defer entry beyond the academic year. If you wish to defer taking up your child's school place, you must still apply by the given deadline and must discuss this with the headteacher, Anya Salisbury
