Hi all! We don't do home visits atm, but incoming HT is keen for them to happen, as am I, having always done them for Rec and Nursery at previous schools. However, said HT was expecting them to be done this term (for Sept intake). When I said I thought Sept would be better and we need not admit any children until all visits are done in first few weeks, as none of the children will be of Statutory School Age by then anyway, she told me categorically that as soon as a child is 5 they are of Stat School Age. This is not what I thought it was, my belief being that they become of Stat School Age at the beginning of the term <u>after </u>their 5th birthday. Can someone tell me who is right please - preferably with the source of that info, so I can make plans? Also, I would be very grateful for a brief overview of how you organise your home visits for Rec and Nursery, as it's a long time since I did any! Thanks for reading!
