Improving the high school transition experience for families

The Access Requests process for students transitioning from primary to high school is going through a change! Starting in 2019 students who are in Year 5 will be able to find out their high school placement as early as Term 4 in 2019.

This change will lead to better educational and social outcomes for students and facilitate increased time for good transition planning with parents, students, the primary and high school.

Together the Access Request process, and the recent change in Term 2 to the IFS Access Requests have helped to improve the family experience when navigating the transition to high school.

These changes have been done with the incredible support of School Services and collaboration across the department.

We hope you look forward to more improvements we will be making to the learning and support journey.
