Deferred and Early Entry to School Highland Guidance Update

Highland Council have recently reviewed their guidance on deferred and early entry to school.  One of the key messages within the guidance is as follows:

 ‘If your child’s birthday falls between 18 August 2020 and the end of February 2021 (e.g. still 4 years old on the school start date in August 2020) you are entitled to defer entry to primary school. If you believe your child is not ready for school you should discuss this with your child’s ELC setting. The final decision on deferred entry is with the parent. This additional year will be fully funded by the Highland Council.’
