According to this BBC Radio 4 clip if your child is born in the summer the current school system puts them at a disadvantage that can continue throughout life.
At Dame Catherines, we allow gradual, part time and delayed starts to school for younger children (which can be combined with nursery attendance if needed) to help them settle in.
Then, because we teach collectively across Key Stage 1, our teachers tailor the learning experience to each child, in a small, friendly and nurturing environment – allowing them to develop confidence in their abilities.
If you think your child would benefit from this, we still have places available in our nursery and KS1 class for immediate entry.
