Prep Enrolment InformationPrep enrolment commences in the year prior to children starting school. Children enrolling in Victorian schools must turn 5 years old by 30th April in the year of entry and are usually enrolled in the year prior to their commencement i.e. the pre-school/kinder year.
Frankston Primary School provides the opportunity for enrolled pre-schoolers to participate in our Prep Transition and Orientation sessions beginning early Term 4. This program runs over four consecutive weeks and is a relaxed and supportive way in which our future Prep students can enjoy time in the Prep classrooms and in their soon-to-be school! The program assists children in becoming familiar with the school environment and in developing a closer relationship with their new peers and their Prep teachers.
We welcome all new Prep students whose enrolment paperwork has been completed and submitted to attend the following sessions. These program days support all of our Prep students to feel as comfortable as possible on their very first day at Frankston Primary School.

Parent Information Sessions
We hold three Prep Parent Information Sessions – these are held on the three consecutive Transition Days October 6th, 13th and 20th at 2.30 – 3.15pm.
During these sessions our Foundation Teachers, Assistant Principal and Principal run through general school information and further information pertinent to the Prep year and Prep students. This includes parent tips and ways parents can support their child in preparing for school and the start of the school year.
Prep TestingOur school will complete two main forms of testing on your child in preparation for their start at school.
Foundation Year Entry Test
The Foundation Year Entry Test is completed here at Frankston Primary School on every child before entering school. This is carried out during November / early December 2020. The Foundation Year Entry Test will assess areas closely associated with your child’s readiness to learn at school such as early literacy, numeracy awareness, language and communication skills.Bookings for your child’s Foundation Year Entry Test are made during our Parent Information Sessions on the Transition Days, where we will also explain this testing in more detail.
The English On-line Interview
During the month of February, Prep students finish school 1.30pm each day.
From 1.30pm, our teachers conduct one-on-one Prep testing on a daily basis and this time also helps forms valuable connections between your child and their teacher. This testing is mandated by the Education Department and looks at early literacy skills, including oral language, alphabet and sound knowledge, rhyming, sequence and comprehension. This testing time helps your child’s
classroom teacher get to know your child and assists planning for your child’s future learning.
Bookings for your child’s English On-line testing are made through the classroom teachers early in the school year.
Remember, please do not hesitate to contact us if you have questions or would like to seek clarification in regards to any of our enrolment information.
