Cohort Entry Policy


Cohort entry applies to 5 year olds (New Entrant enrolments) only. There are eight starting dates for 5 year olds during the year.  Students can start school on a cohort entry date after their fifth birthday.
Please note that it is a legal requirement that a child is enrolled at a school from age 6. Therefore, if not already enrolled, a child can start school on their 6th birthday regardless of a school’s cohort entry policy, but must start school no later than their 6th birthday.

Our school operates an enrolment scheme (school zone). This scheme helps to protect our school from overcrowding. If you live within the school zone, then your children are guaranteed a place at TPS. Out-of-zone applications for enrolment are considered through a ballot system, and are subject to available places in suitable classes.
