New Entrants

New Entrant Information

At Pinehill School, our new entrant students start school via cohort entry. Cohort entry is when a school has two entry points per term for children to start school after they have turned five:
  •  first day of term
  • mid-point during the term

Cohort entry is about helping children to settle better at school. There is evidence that starting school alongside other children helps them build relationships and supports a smoother entry into school life.

To help your child transition to school, they will be given two school visits prior to starting at Pinehill.
