primary school age range

Children must stay in full-time education until they reach school leaving age.
Contact the local council or school to ask for your child to start later. They’ll decide if your child should start in reception year or year 1, based on what’s in the best interests of your child.

Public notice was issued of this proposal and a four-week representation period began on Thursday, 23 April 2020. During this time, no objections were received to the proposal.
Worcestershire County Council proposed the change of age range of Bewdley Primary School from 3 to 11 to 2 to 11 from 1 September 2020.

Education is compulsory for all children who have reached the age of 4 on or before 1 July.
In the first two years of primary school your child will experience the same sort of learning and activities they were used to in their early years – this is called the Foundation Stage. The next two years are called Key Stage 1 (P3 and P4) and the next three years are known as Key Stage 2 (P5, P6 and P7). On completion of seven years of primary education, children transfer to post primary schools at the age of 11.
