Reception mid-year intake in 2024 | South Australian Government Primary Schools

The new mid-year intake to reception starts in 2024

Starting school is an exciting milestone for children and their families. From 2024, South Australian government primary schools will introduce a mid-year intake to reception, following the introduction of preschool mid-year intake earlier this year.

This means children who turn 5 between 1 May and 31 October 2024 can start school in term 3 (July), 2024, instead of waiting until the following year.

And if you’ve got a little one eligible, now’s the time to register them to start school at mid-year 2024!

The Department for Education has a range of tools to help you including a handy school finder and an age calculator to find out when your child can start.
