A Positive Start to School at Wembley Primary School
Starting school marks an important milestone in the lives of young children. At Wembley Primary School, we believe that the transition from kindergarten to school should be as smooth and enjoyable as possible. Each year we offer transition sessions to assist the children to familiarise themselves with the school. During these sessions the children spend time with their teacher and classmates participating in engaging activities aimed at familiarising them with the structures and routines of school life. While the children are in class, parents have been invited to Information sessions, designed to provide an insight into what they can expect from their child’s first year at school.
Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) we are unable to run our on-site transition program this year. However, we are committed to ensuring that our new prep students and their parents make a positive transition to school. To this end, we have been busy planning an alternative transition program to be implemented between now and the beginning of the 2021 school year.
To enable this, the following transition activities have been planned:
Participating in these transition to school activities will help you and your child get a better understanding of what Wembley will be like.
Assessment of 2021 Prep Students
In addition to the information schools receive as part of the Kindergarten Transition Statement, schools are obliged to conduct a range of assessments with each child when they enter Prep.
At Wembley, these assessments will be carried out early in the 2021 year to allow our teaching team to develop a deeper understanding of the strengths and areas for further development of our Prep children and to develop programs to meet their needs.
The assessments cover Literacy and Numeracy and will take approximately an hour to complete.
Information on booking interviews will be sent out, when Teachers and rooms are confirmed.
The dates the assessments are available are:
Once restrictions are eased, we look forward to meeting with you.
