I’m not aware of the UK rules but I know in Australia the school starting age differs from state to state. Our cut off in Victoria is April 30 and my son started school aged 4, turning 5 that April. Do I regret it? No. Did we liaise with his preschool teacher etc and think exhaustively over the pros and cons? Yes. He has just finished Year 12 as a 17 year old whilst all his mates have or are turning 18 – drinking, driving, etc. Has this been challenging? Absolutely. But it is our responsibility as parents to manage what’s best for our son.
