  • If your child turns 5 on or before the 30th April they can start school in Term 1 of that year. 
  • If your child turns 5 on or before 31st October they can start school in Term 3 of that year.
  • Children starting in Reception in Term 3 will have a minimum of 6 terms in Reception.
  • Children whose birthday falls between 1st November and 31st December are not eligible to commence school before the following year.

If you have any questions regarding enrolling your child and/or starting dates please contact the school and we will happily help you.
