Mid term dates for schools with cohort entry

This date is the mid-point between the start of term and the start of the next term. If a child’s birthday falls before the mid term date, then they can start school at the beginning of that term or the beginning of any following term until their sixth birthday. If their birthday falls on or after the mid term date then they can start school at the beginning of the following term or at the start of any following term until their sixth birthday.

The date used for the first term is the latest possible term start date. Even if your school uses an earlier start date than the day after Waitangi Day, or finishes before the latest possible end date for Term 4, the proposed mid-term dates will apply for the purposes of a cohort entry policy.
