DS is currently in year 1, and he was born at the end of August. If we moved to Scotland now, does anyone know which primary class he would go into?

As in, from England blush.

What year was he born?

August 2010 are in P1. If he's August 2011 he'd be in preschool

So he's 5? Turning 6 this Aug?
He would be in Primary 1, starting primary 2 after summer hols (Scotland don't have reception class)

He would be currently in P1. The oldest child in the year would have turned 5 in March 2015, then your DS turned 5 in August 2015 and the youngest child turned 5 in February 2016.

So at the moment in England he's the youngest in Year 1, in Scotland he's in the same year (year 1) but he's now in the middle of the age range.

Dd is 6 in September. She is in primary one. She will be in primary two after the summer.

But Bob he'll have been at school since sept 2014 in England. (Reception the. y1) so he will have had an extra year at school than he would've had in Scotland. Regardless he'll go into primary 2 after summer.

Yes, he was born in August 2010.

So he'd go from year 1 to primary 1 then smile, that would be great.

Please can I ask the same question?

DS is in year 2 in England, born in December.
DD is in reception, born in May.

What years would they be in if we moved now??

DS is currently one of the oldest in his year - would he become one of the youngest? Likewise DD is one of the younger ones, would she be one of the older ones?

Thanks smile

What years were they born? But yes, December birthdays are towards the youngest in the year and May would be one of the older children as the cut off date is the end of February rather than August

Guessing that the reception child was born in May 2011 to be in school already?

The English applications which just went in were for children born from 1 September 2011 to 31 August 2012.

The Y2 child... <counts on fingers>

1 September 2010 to 31 August 2011- current R
1 September 2009 to 31 August- 2010- current Y1
1 September 2008 to 31 August 2009- current Y2

December 2008?

Now Scotland goes on a March- February cycle.

P7 are March 2004- Feb 2005
P6 March 2005- Feb 2006
P5 March 2006- Feb 2007
P4 March 2007- Feb 2008
P3 March 2008- Feb 2009
P2 March 2009 - Feb 2010
P1 March 2010- Feb 2011
* NEW * P1s- March 2011- Feb 2012

So the Reception child not be at school get- would go into P1 in August and the Y2 child would currently be in P3. I think.

My head hurts confused

Your reception child would start P1 in August - no reception year so would get a nursery allocation.

Your Year 2 would currently be P3 and move into P4 in August. However, with a December birthday and moving into a different school system you would be afforded a bit of leeway and you may get the choice of P2 into P3 in August instead. My DSs friend was initially placed in my younger sons class at P5 but then moved up to my elder sons class in P7 so that he ended up going to High School with the proper age group and he was doing well academically and socially and he already had a friend in the class (my DS1) courtesy of his friendship with my DS2.
