The Future

The Government has announced that from September 2004 every 3 year old will be entitled to free State School Education for part of the day. In those areas that currently provide education for 3 year olds in the State Sector some 62% of eligible children are already in the system. Whilst the statutory age remains at 5 years, places for the 3 year old will become the norm.

As in all levels of education desirability and availability of places will be in conflict.

The education of every child is important.

The State System of Education can certainly provide satisfactory solutions, but an awareness of its idiosyncrasies, some of the challenges facing a family newly arrived in the UK and exactly what professional support is available, will ultimately pay dividends.
