Student enrolment procedures
Enrolment at Eimeo Road State School is governed by the school's Enrolment Management Plan (EMP). This plan outlines the catchment areas and is intended to ensure that the number of students attending the school remains within the capacity of existing facilities. The catchment area can be viewed online.
Students residing within catchment
Students whose principal place of residence is within the school catchment boundary are considered 'Inside Catchment' enrolments. Enrolment forms must be accompanied by appropriate “proof of residence” documentation as outlined in the EMP.
Parents or legal guardians who wish to enrol their child at the school will need to demonstrate that the student's principal place of residence is within the catchment area. Current proof of residency at the address indicated can be provided by way of one of each of the following:
- One primary source - a current lease agreement, or rates notice, or un conditional sale agreement, and
- One secondary source - a utility bill (e.g. electricity, gas), showing this same address and parent's/legal guardian's name.
Each student’s original birth certificate must also be sighted and copied by the school administration.
Students residing outside of catchment
Applications to transfer a student from another school can be made at any time during the year for students who reside outside of the catchment area. Applications will be added to a waiting list and an offer of enrolment made, based on the availability of space, at the time that the enrolment is to commence.
An enrolment interview is held for all students prior to commencing school. The enrolment process includes completion of a number of forms, an outline of several key school policies and the collection of summary information around each child's academic achievements and school behaviour. Previous report cards and assessments are useful to bring to the interview and assist in placing students in appropriate classes. This interview is conducted by the principal or deputy principal for that particular range of year levels. As part of our school uniform expectations all students be attired in school uniform from the first day of attendance as this helps new children quickly settle in and feel comfortable in their new school setting.
