    Hmmm… You say it’s good news, but what has he actually achieved? It still seems pretty much up to the discretion of local authorities and schools. Next term another cohort of parents have to apply for deferred admission for their 3 year olds with their fingers crossed…

  2. I completely understand your frustration, and you are not alone, as addressed in this recent article:

    However, Schools Minister Nick Gibb has done more to address the issue of unfair admissions for summer born children than any other DfE minister before him, so we see it as good news that his position is being maintained.
