Full-time education is a big milestone for children, and for parents too! You'll be thinking about whether to educate your children together - should they go to the same school, or be in the same class? You may be wondering whether your children are ready for primary school, how to ensure your application is considered as a multiple-birth, or how to prepare them for their next big step.
Applying for primary school with multiples
Access resources around applying for primary schools, including:

Should my children start school together or apart?
This is a very personal question to your family and it depends entirely on how you think your children will thrive independently. We have created a bank of information to help with making this choice and holding these discussions with your children's teachers and school admissions staff.
How to appeal primary school admissions decisions
Sometimes, you won't get a place at the school where you want to send your children and, depending on the circumstances, you may want to appeal this decision. We have created a support pack and hub of information to help guide you through this process.
Preparing your twins, triplets and more for primary school
