What day does primary school start UK?

Posted on

In the UK, the start date for primary school can vary depending on the school and the local authority. However, primary schools typically start their academic year in the first week of September.

The exact start date for primary school can vary depending on the school's term dates and any local authority guidelines. Some schools may have an inset day, where the school is closed to pupils, on the first day of term, so it's important to check the school's calendar or contact the school directly for more information.

It's worth noting that some primary schools may have different start dates for different year groups, particularly for new reception class pupils who may have a phased start to allow for settling in and induction activities. Again, it's important to check with the school for the exact start date and any specific arrangements for new pupils.

If you're unsure about the start date for primary school in your area, you can check with your local authority or the school directly for more information.
