Reception class is the first year at primary school, but unlike every other school year, it is not compulsory for your child to attend, but it is a good way to introduce your child to life at school.

If your child is four years old before September, you can apply for a place in a reception class in the same way as you would for any school place. You child must attend school from the beginning of the school year following their 5th birthday.
