After consulting with our community, staff and Early Learner Centres; Coatesville School will be adopting Cohort Entry from
30th of April – beginning of Term 2, 2018.
There will be two entry points in each term – Monday Week 1 and Monday Week 6.
hildren will start at the entry point that is closest to the date after their 5th birthday. There may be circumstances that we alter a child’s entry point; this would be at our discretion and in consultation with Parents/Caregivers.
Parents/Caregivers will have the choice of waiting for the next cohort entry point if they felt their child was not ready to start school.
Prospective students will be given the opportunity to have three visits in Weeks 8, 9 and 10 before they start school the following term or Weeks 3, 4 and 5 if they’re starting in Week 6.
Parents choosing not to start their child until the age of six must ensure they start school on their sixth birthday, regardless of our school’s cohort entry arrangements.
