Enrolments

New enrolments are asked to call the office for an enrolment appointment. Please bring a copy of your child's birth certificate with you. For overseas enrolments, please bring copies of birth certificates, passports (parents and child's) and current visa documentation. 

We like to offer a full tour of our school grounds during the appointment so you are able to see our wonderful campus in action. We also like to meet your child at this time if possible.

Frenchville has a strictly enforced enrolment management plan to ensure growth on the campus is sustainable and managed within the current built capacity.  The enrolment management plan and catchment map should be consulted for further information before approaching the school for enrolment. Enrolment restrictions apply and a waiting list is in place.  Ed Map  is a  useful interactive street map that allows you to put your address into a search function. Ed Map will then tell you which school catchment area your residential address falls into. 

Proof of residence in catchment needs to be sighted upon enrolment.  Until we view this proof, applications cannot be processed. We are required to sight at least one primary form and one secondary form of proof of residency.  A primary form consists of a current lease agreement, unconditional contract of sale or deed of residence, complete with the enrolling parent's name and in-catchment address.  A secondary source of proof can consist of a power bill, telecommunications bill or similar, again complete with the enrolling parent's name and in-catchment address shown.

 

Further clarification will be sought if there is any doubt about residential status.  The Principal may request further sources of proof of residency including:

  • Additional utility bills (e.g. water bill) or a series of bills at for the same address over a sequential period to demonstrate continued/ongoing residency
    • Electoral Roll verification letter
    • Mobile phone statement (with current address details)
    • Driver’s Licence (with current address details)
    • Bank statement (with current address details; financial details are not required)
    • Tax Assessment Notice (financial details are not required)
    • Documents demonstrating recent change of address / re-location to within the school’s catchment area (e.g. proof of sale or termination of lease for the previous principal place of residence in a different catchment).
 
The Principal may also request a properly sworn Statutory Declaration from the enrolling parent or legal guardian attesting that the student’s principal place of residence is the place nominated in the enrolment application.
 
Applicants should note that a false statement/assertion about the student’s principal place of residence may amount to an offence and may be reported to police. The school Principal may repeal a decision to enrol a student in such circumstances.

To determine when you child can commence their prepatory year, use the prep ready reckoner calculator.    We do not start accepting enrolments for prep in 2018 until the first day in February 2017.

 

In 2017 and 2018  we will only be accepting 'in catchment' enrolments.  

 

Principals may now consider enrolling (into Prep) a child who turns five between 1 and 31 July in the year of proposed attendance if the principal is satisfied that the child is ready for education after considering the child’s attributes.  Parents wishing to have their child considered for early entry to prep should contact the school to discuss the requirements and application process.  Upon request and following this discussion, a copy of the Early Entry to Prep Application Form can be requested by the parent. 

 

Early entry for July-born children is viewed as an exception and is only granted when it is considered to be in the best interests of the child.  The standard prep entry cut off date remains 30 June in the year a child enters prep.  A quality kindergarten program in the year before prep is still recognised as the best education option for all children. 

 

In making the decision about early entry applications,  aptitude and ability, social and emotional competence, physical development, and level of knowledge and understanding will be considered.  Parents interested in finding out more about early entry to prep are encouraged to contact the principal by July in the year before they are seeking early entry to obtain an application form and discuss the process.
