Cohort Entry – New Entrant Students
Cohort entry refers to new entrant children starting school as a group, at the beginning or mid-point of a term, AFTER THEIR FIFTH BIRTHDAY as opposed to starting school on their fifth birthday. Parents will continue to have the option of not starting their child in school until their 6th birthday, regardless of whether or not TPPS has a cohort entry policy.
- We will now have two intake periods each term – at the start of term and at mid term. Please see the dates below.
- All new entrants who turn 5 before the start of the term can start at the beginning of that term, or at a later mid term or start of term date before their 6th birthday.
- If their birthday falls after the start of term but before the mid term date, they can enrol on the mid term date, or at a later start of term or mid term date before their 6th birthday.
- Children must have turned 5 before they can enrol in school.
We will have eight dates during the year where new entrants start in the classroom. Students won’t be starting school on their birthday.
