Government schools have one intake per year for children starting in Reception in term 1.
The parents/guardians of a child under the age of 6 years can enrol in a government school if:
- the child has turned 5 years of age before 1 May; the child can start school the first day of term 1 of that school year
- the child has turned 5 years of age on or after 1 May; the child can start school the first day of term 1 of the following school year.
A child must be enrolled at a school by their 6th birthday. It is recommended a child who will turn 6 years of age during the school year start school on the first day of term 1 of that school year.
