Dear Ms Heath,

Many thanks for your comprehensive response.

I note from the data that there is a high proportion of summer-born pupils with SEN without statement compared to autumn-born pupils.

With this in mind, I hope that the data you have collated can be put to good use by Southampton's school admissions team when considering parental requests for the admission of summer-born children to reception at compulsory school age.

Yours sincerely,

Michelle Melson
