I'm a primary school teacher (and mum) planning a move back to Scotland next year. My Feb born daughter is a bright wee thing and very chatty but quite small and not very confident physically. My gut instinct is to defer her entry to p1 till 2018 so she gets another year of nursery, and personally I'm all for the delaying the start of formal education to give children the best possibly set of tools (socially and emotionally as well as academically) with which to start school. But I'd like to hear your thoughts from the front line! I'm only really familiar with the English reception year which is quite play based but becoming increasingly more formal. What would you do? Is my hunch right? Thanks.
