School Age and Information on deferring P1 Start


Children born between 2 July 2019 and 1 July 2020 will be due to start Primary One in September 2024 as they will be of compulsory school age and Parents/Guardians must apply for a place in a primary school.

The School Age (NI) Act became law in Northern Ireland on 28 April 2022 and has changed the law to allow the parents/guardians of younger children in the year group a choice to defer their child starting primary school by one year should they wish to do so. 

This applies only to children:-

Born on or between 1 April 2019 and 1 July 2020
Born before 1 April 2020 but due to be born on or after 1 April 2020 if born at term (Medical evidence must be provided)

These children can decide to defer P1 for one year and apply for pre-school.


Further information on Deferral of School Starting Age is available on the Department of Education website under School Starting Age.
