Kindergarten 2022 Best Start testing


The Best Start Kindergarten Assessments will take place at our school, on Tuesday February 1 and Wednesday February 2, it will take approximately 40 minutes.    While your child is spending time getting to know their classroom teacher, an executive team member will meet with you and answer any questions you may have. Please meet us in the office, your child will go to the classroom with their teacher. 

The first day of school for all Kindergarten 2021 students will be Thursday February 3, 2021.

The Best Start Kindergarten Assessment is a state-wide assessment that helps show teachers the literacy and numeracy skills of each student at the beginning of Kindergarten. This helps teachers to plan lessons to best support the learning needs of every child.

Children come to school with a range of experiences, skills and abilities. Some are familiar with books, can recognise letters of the alphabet or even write their name or count to ten, while others have not yet learned these skills.

The Best Start Kindergarten Assessment provides teachers with the opportunity to sit with a child one on one, focusing on what that child can do.

The assessment is not a test but provides teachers with useful information to help support your child’s learning at school. If you wish to withdraw your child from participating in the assessment, please contact the school.

The attached information sheet provides further information on the Best Start Kindergarten Assessment. 

Please contact the school if you have any questions regarding the Best Start Kindergarten Assessment or if you have not received a letter with an appointment time.
