At Brookfield School we have a cohort entry policy for students who are due to start school for the first time.
How it works
We have two intake periods each term - at the start of term and at mid term.
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.
Start dates are dictated by the Ministry of Education and local early childhood centres / kohanga and whānau will be notified of these dates at least a term in advance.
This will mean that we have eight dates during the year where new entrants start in the classroom. Students will not start on their 5th birthday.
