Following last year’s ‘Evidence check’ web forum, the Education Committee is now calling for written submissions ahead of a one-off evidence session on the subject of starting school on Wednesday 4 March 2015.
The session will focus on evidence relating to the Government’s policy on the school starting age, including provisions for those born in summer months or born prematurely.
Please do submit your comments – the Committee will be assessing:
- Whether the evidence provided reflects the range and balance of evidence available, including from other countries
- Whether the evidence quoted by the Department is faithfully represented
How the Department’s policies relate to the evidence provided
