Transition statements

PublishingPageContent

A transition statement is a summary of each child's learning and development during the kindergarten year. Transition statements are created towards the end of the kindergarten year by teachers in collaboration with the children, their parents/carers, and support personnel. A transition statement belongs to the family and child.

Parents and carers can choose to share the transition statement with their child's new prep teacher and/or other relevant staff at their new school, or they can consent to it being passed to the school by the kindergarten teacher by signing the transition statement consent form.

For more information about transition statements, visit the Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority website.

How can a transition statement be used to support learning?

Parents use information in the transition statement to support their child as they move into early schooling. If parents share information recorded on the transition statement with their child's school, it can be used to help:

  • identify different pathways and approaches to transitions that best suit children and their families
  • plan ways to help children and their families feel welcome and comfortable in the new setting
  • identify starting points for learning that build on children's identified strengths, talents, motivations, interests and learning needs.
