    Re: Anyone else miss out on a year of primary school?

    I nearly missed a year -I was promoted by a year, twice in succession, but the local schools wouldn't take kids early so I spent two years in the last class...

      The year group a student is in at school in England and Wales depends on which side of 1st September their birthday falls. I am vaguely aware that in decades gone by that some LEAs used 1st August instead so students with an August birthday were a year behind at what they should have been at school. It also meant that they could (in theory) pass their driving test before their O Level results were announced. I think this missing a year at primary was students with August birthdays being moved up to the correct year group.

      The year group system only officially came into use in September 1990. In the absence of a standard year group system before then I suspect that there was the potential to move primary school kids to different classes to give an impression that they are ahead or behind the year group that they are supposed to be in.

            I didn't miss a year of school as such but I missed the final six weeks of Year 5 due to being in hospital for a scheduled operation (cf the Hospital thread), and the final couple of months of Year 11 because I was at the end of my tether with people getting away with doing things to me (cf my 25 Years since leaving school thread).
            I've everything I need to keep me satisfied
            There's nothing you can do to make me change my mind
            I'm having so much fun
            My lucky number's one
            Ah! Oh! Ah! Oh!
