KINDERGARTEN 2020 APPLICATION FOR ENROLMENT
GENERAL INFORMATION (FOR KINDERGARTEN)
This is an application only and not an enrolment.
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. Children may be enrolled in Kindergarten in one school only, either public or private.
Please complete one form for each child. You will also be required to show proof of your child’s date of birth (usually birth certificate) and of your usual place of residence. A council rates notice or rental agreement in addition to a utilities account (electricity, water or telephone) suffice as proof of usual residence.
Applications for the first round of offers for Kindergarten are accepted any time during the year before attending until the closing date. For children starting in Kindergarten the closing date for applications for the first round of offers is the first Friday in Term 3 of the previous year. Applications may still be made after this date and will be considered on a case by case basis, in accordance with the Department of Education’s Enrolment Policy which can be found at http://www.det.wa.edu.au/policies.
Once accepted, you will be required to complete enrolment procedures at the school. Parents should bring evidence of the child’s legal name, immunisation records, immigration records (if applicable) and medical information. Any Family Court Orders or parenting plans registered with the Family Court should also be made available at the time of enrolment.
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 you can appeal to the District Education Office in the district in which the school is located. Prior to submitting an appeal, however, it is recommended that you contact the principal to discuss your grievance informally.
