My third son was born in December and the cut of was Dec 31 then. He had speech problems and his pre school teacher wanted him to stay there another year. It was half days and I thought he would be better off having full day schooling. His speech improved with going to big school but he ended up repeating y1 as we thought and his teacher said it was better. He still had trouble at school and never recovered , even with extra help at home. Rules have changed for my younger children with cut off Jun 30, and Dec babies still have trouble. This time harder as twins, turns out one needed more time at home so home schooled my son and now fingers crossed is enjoying school in the same grade as his sister.
