Evidence check: Starting school inquiry


This is the second subject to be inquired into by the Education Committee following the ‘Evidence check’ web forum.

The session will focus on evidence relating to the Government's policy on the school starting age, including provisions for those born in summer months or born prematurely.

The Committee assesses:

  • Whether the evidence provided reflects the range and balance of evidence available, including from other countries
  • Whether the evidence quoted by the Department is faithfully represented
  • How the Department’s policies relate to the evidence provided
