2015 DfE Statistical Information Has WRONG Summer Born Classification

crossIt’s not a particularly ‘new’ phenomenon – many education documents published by successive governments have either ‘forgotten‘ summer born children or defined them incorrectly.

But just one month after the DfE published its new School Admissions Code and Summer Born Advice, a new statistical document shows that there are still those at the DfE who don’t actually know what ‘summer born‘ means.

Page 12 of Pupil Characteristic & Geography Information reads:

Summer born = May, June, July or August

WRONG – Children born in April are legally summer born too.
