Enrolment

Residing in the local intake area

Tuart Hill Primary School is a local area intake school.  Children must reside within the school’s intake boundaries in order to be eligible for enrolment.

Parents of children not residing within the local intake area are invited to complete an Application for Enrolment for consideration by Beverly Innes (Principal), along with a letter addressed to the Principal outlining the reasons for your out of boundary application.

Eligibility for entry will be dependent upon positions available within the school.

IMPORTANT CHANGE TO IMMUNISATION RECORDS 

Due to changes implemented by Department of Health we would like to inform you that we can no longer accept documentation that is captured in the ‘Purple Immunisation Book’. It is now a requirement that parent/guardians provide Australian Immunisation Record (AIR) for children. The Australian Immunisation Register (AIR) records information about immunisations given to children who live in Australia.

Please note for enrolment purposes, we can only accept the AIR history statement as proof of immunisations and this must be less than 2 months old

It is important to keep the school up to date with your child’s vaccination records. Please email our Administration Office with any updated records so we can enter these details in to the student record system.

Parent or guardians of children under 14 years of age can request an AIR history statement by:

Eligibility for enrolment for Kindergarten and Pre-Primary

Overseas fee paying students must enrol via TAFE International, who will then liaise with the School Administration in regards to your child’s enrolment prior to an application form being completed. Fees are paid to TAFE International.

Classroom Placements for the following school year

Teachers work collaboratively to construct class lists for the next school year during Term Four of the current year.

Student placements are deeply and professionally deliberated, with a number of factors taken into consideration, including:

  • Individual special needs
  • Positive peer friendships
  • Academic performance
  • Behaviour
  • Parent comments/requests

Teachers work collaboratively to construct class lists for the next school year during Term Four of the current year.

Parents are asked to assist us in our planning by letting us know if their child will not be returning to our school the next school year or by providing comments/requests regarding their child’s placement.

Parent Class Placement comments and requests

  • will be called for through eNewsletters
  • should be addressed to the Principal and
  • must be received in writing by Friday 25 October 2019.

Letters may be delivered to the front office or emailed to: [email protected]

The Principal will consider all requests in conjunction with professional advice from staff and school organisational.  Requests for specific teachers will not be considered.

The Principal’s decision is final.

Student Class placements for the next year will be completed by Friday of Week Nine, Term Four. It is anticipated that complied lists will be posted onto the school notice boards by 2.50 p.m. of that Friday.

While praise is welcome and should be widely spread, all other comments regarding class placements must be addressed directly to the Principal [email protected] only; thank you.
