Cohort Entry for Five Year Old Children
Raumati Beach School is proposing to start cohort entry in 2021. This means students will start with a group of their peers who will all be 5 within the same 5 weeks.
Cohort entry is about helping children to settle better in school.
There's evidence that starting school alongside other children helps children build relationships and supports a smoother entry to school life. They will visit school together and begin their Raumati Beach School journey on set dates.
The proposed dates for 2021 are:
|Term||Start of term date||Mid term date|
