On January 15, 2014, Pauline Hull and Michelle Melson published their SUMMER BORN report titled, ‘Compulsory School Age in England has been Lowered to 4 through an Unfair and Unlawful Summer Born Admissions Process’.
You can also read the accompanying PRESS RELEASE.
The report contains numerous examples of Unlawful and Unfair Policies and Practices; Evidence of Inconsistency, Contradiction and Errors in DfE publications and Ministers’ statements; an extensive Glossary of Legislation that relates to school admissions; an insightful and detailed Admissions History; plus examples of Parents’ Experiences.
Media coverage of the report’s publication can be found in the News section of our site.

Congratulations, this unfair process has to stop and you are doing wonderful work to help make that happen. THANK YOU on behalf of our summer born daughter and all my friends who were forced to start their children at school at 4 years old, when they weren’t ready and against their wishes.
