Deferring School Starting Age Consultation – Northern Ireland
The Department of Education in Northern Ireland has published consultation proposals on the policy of a one year deferral of the compulsory school starting age for children in exceptional circumstances. This could affect, among others, adopted and looked after children who are experiencing difficulties with developmental milestones. Education Minister John O’Dowd has urged everyone with an interest to have their say.
Further details of the proposals and how to respond are on the Deni.gov.uk website.
