A parent/responsible person applying to enrol a child in a public school should complete this Application for Enrolment form. Only permanent Australian residents and those children holding an approved visa subclass number are eligible to enrol in public schools.
Please complete one form for each child. You will also be required to show proof of your child’s date of birth and of your usual place of residence.
Once accepted, you will be asked to show your child’s Birth Certificate or birth extract or equivalent identity documents; your child’s ‘Immunisation Certificate’; usual place of residence: for example utilities account, lease agreement of at least three months, proof of ownership of property, driver’s licence, statutory declaration; copies of any Family Court or other court orders; and visa details (if applicable). You will be required to complete the enrolment procedures at the school.
Decisions about the enrolment of your child into a specific year of schooling and/or the educational program will be based on age eligibility, as well as the child’s level of previous schooling, achievement levels and identified needs.
If your Application for Enrolment is not accepted, you will be advised in writing within three weeks of the advertised closing date for applications. Should you disagree with a school’s decision regarding your Application for Enrolment, it is recommended that you contact the principal to discuss your grievance informally.
Where the school has a local-intake area, an eligible child whose place of residence is within that area is guaranteed enrolment in the compulsory years of schooling (Pre-primary to Year 12).
