Transition statements

In Queensland, a transition statement is a summary of each child's learning across their kindergarten year. It includes contributions from the kindergarten teacher, parents and child.

A printed copy of the statement is made available to each child's family.

Foundations for Success includes information about transition to school, sample interactive transition statements and a link to the transition statement parent/carer consent form.

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.

When the transition statement is shared with the child's new school, the valuable information they contain about each child's strengths and interests is helpful for Prep teachers as they prepare to welcome each child and plan for their ongoing learning and development.
