On-entry assessment

On-entry assessment

During weeks 3 to 6 of Term 1, teachers assess each Pre-primary student’s skills and understandings of oral language, reading, writing and numeracy.

The teachers will conduct the assessment one-on-one with each child. The information provided enables the teacher to plan for the learning needs of every child, including those who may need additional support or extension.

Many children who start school with limited skills progress quickly when provided with the right support.

As children progress, their needs may change. Teachers continually monitor their students’ progress to ensure the changing needs of every child are met.

We encourage you to talk to your child’s teacher to find out more about the On-entry Assessment.

Summary for parents

After the assessment period, your child’s teacher may send you a summary that includes the skills and understandings your child demonstrated. 

Supporting your child

You do not need to prepare your child for the assessment, however, we encourage you to support your child's learning at home. You can use these resources and activities with your child:
