Reception intake to school
From 2024 there will be 2 intakes for children entering reception: term 1 intake and a term 3 intake:
- Children who start preschool in term 1 will start reception in term 1 of the following year and complete 4 terms of reception.
- Children who start preschool in term 3 will start reception in term 3 of the following year and complete 6 terms of reception.
The mid-year intake does not mean children are eligible to start preschool or school any younger than they do now. The youngest a child can start preschool under a single intake is 3 years and 9 months, and the youngest a student can start reception under a single intake is 4 years and 9 months. This will not change under mid-year intake.
All schools are required to accept reception mid-year intake students in 2024 and each year after.
Children attending Angaston Kindergarten are entitled to enrol at Angaston Primary School. An Enrolment pack will be sent to the kindergarten to be distributed to families before the end of Term 3 in preparation for transition visits in term 4.
Children not attending Angaston Kindergarten are welcome to enrol at Angaston Primary School any time during their preschool year but preferably before the end of term 3 to ensure the child has access to formal transition visits in term 4.
Please contact the front office on 08 85642215 to arrange a pre enrolment meeting with the Principal or Deputy Principal.
