The admission policy in Bristol enables every child to have three full years of infant schooling. Therefore, children whose fourth birthday falls on or before 31st August of any year would normally join the infant department at the start of the following autumn term. A child becomes of compulsory school age on reaching five years, but a parent is not legally required to send a child to school until the beginning of the term following the child’s fifth birthday.
