Don't SA do 2 intakes? One at beginning of the year and another mid-year?
SA do one intake at the beginning of the year. Cut off date is the 30 April.
Everything happyhead is how it is for us.
DS was born in the middle of April so he will be one of the youngest in his class. The way we see it is that under the 'old' intake he would start reception in May Term 2 but only do 3 terms of reception. This way he will start in January and get 4 terms of reception. We think its better as he will get an extra term of reception.
Yes, he will be younger and we hope he won't be disadvantaged. But they are all individuals and have their strengths and weaknesses anyway. Regardless of when they start school.
It does seem weird seeing DS with some of the kids he will be at school with as he seems so much younger. But a lot can change in 3 years smile
