Children are legally required to start attending school at the start of the term after their fifth birthday either on 31 August, 31 December or 31 March, however children often start earlier than this. Pupils are required to stay in school until the last Friday in June of the school year in which they reach 16 years of age. During this time children must receive full-time education that is suited to their age, ability, aptitude and special educational needs (SEN). If a child does not attend school, the local education authority (LEA) must be satisfied that other appropriate provision is available.
Most pupils transfer from primary to secondary school at age 11 years. However, a system of middle schools also exists: here pupils are transferred from primary school at either age 8 or 9 years, then onto secondary education at age 12 or 13 years. Most secondary schools in England are comprehensive; these do not operate a selective entrance system.
The Private Sector Schools in the private sector are known as independent or public schools. They rely for finance solely on fees charged to parents. The majority are boarding schools, although there are some independent day schools, particularly in the London area. Children live at school during term time, only returning home at half term and during the main holidays (Christmas, Easter and Summer). However children may also spend one or two weekends per term at home (or, in the case of children from overseas, with guardian families) - these weekend breaks are called exeats. Most schools have fixed dates for exeats, although some will allow children / parents to choose their own exeat weekends.
The National Curriculum is set by the government and must be followed in all state schools. Most private schools follow the National Curriculum, but they have more flexibility in the number of subjects on offer.
The National Curriculum is made up of the following subjects: English Design & Technology Geography Maths Information Technology Music Science Art Physical Education History Modern foreign language
