School Starting Age
If your child was born between 1 September 2018 and 31 August 2019, they will be eligible to start school in September 2023.
Most children will start school in the September, after they are 4 years old. Children reach compulsory school age at the start of the term after their 5th birthday. If you wish to delay your child starting school, you must contact Cheshire East Council directly.
You will have until January of the same calendar year that they are due to start, to apply for your child's school place.
