Last week Sir Michael Wilshaw said he felt children should be in school from the age of two.

It seems our newsletter readers have a different view.

When asked whether moving children to school at the age of two would restrict natural development of personal and social skills, an overwhelming 98.4% said they believed it would.


Nearly half of you feel that five is the best time to start school, while over a third thought six. 16.7% said seven was the best age and only 3.3% picked four.



So, the feeling is that two is much too young and could hinder the development that will make them grow up to be well-rounded human beings.

Do you think starting school at an earlier age would have been beneficial for your education?
