Enrolments

Thank you for considering Kensington Primary School for your child's education. We are very proud of the work we do and the opportunities that we provide for our students. We look forward to meeting you if you decide that our school is a good fit for your family and you meet the enrolment criteria set out in our Enrolment Policy. 

Please note: To enrol at school, children must be at least 5 years of age by the 30th April in the year they commence.

 

STEP 1: VIEW OUR ENROLMENT POLICY

Due to increasing enrolments in recent years, we have been directed by the Department of Education and Training to implement an Enrolment Policy. It is important that you have read and understood this policy prior to completing the enrolment process.

You can download the current years Enrolment Form below and return to the school office, together with a copy of your child's Birth Certificate and Immunisation Certificate. Alternatively, you are most welcome to collect an Enrolment Pack from the school office.

 

STEP 3: CHECK OUR ENROLMENT BOUNDARY AREA

In recent years our school has continued to grow as a result of the quality programs we offer. To ensure we can continue to provide each and every one of our students with a top quality educational experience it is critical that we do not become over crowded. To effectively manage our school size, Enrolment Intake Boundaries have been put in place. The map below indicates where our boundaries are. If you are unsure if your primary residence is within our intake area, please feel free to contact us and we can seek clarification from the Department of Education.



STEP 4: BOOKING A SCHOOL TOUR (not compulsory).

 

Now that you have established that your primary residence is within our intake area, you are very welcome to book a school tour. Tours can take up to 30 mins and are held only on regular Friday’s from Term 2 onwards.

 

Please contact the school office to book your tour. At busy times of the school year you may be asked to tour with another family. We thank you for your willingness to do this. Please feel free to come ready with any questions you would like answered.

 

Please note that we also offer a school Open Day. See information below.

 

STEP 5: ENROLMENT FORMS

 

You are now ready to complete and submit an Enrolment Form for each of your children. To enrol your child or children for 2018 please download the Enrolment Pack below (one per child) and return the completed forms to the school together with the $50 Enrolment Fee.

STEP 7: ACCEPTANCE AND NOTIFICATION PROCESS

 

If your residence is within our area – your child’s enrolment will be automatically accepted and processed.

 

If your primary residence is NOT within our area - your child’s enrolment will be added to a waiting list. Enrolments will be recorded in order of receipt and remain current only for the year of submission. Once we have processed all applications from families in our local area, we will make a determination about having the capacity to accept any ‘Out of Area’ enrolments. If we do have capacity to accept additional enrolments, they will be offered in order of the waiting list.
