Enrolment Of Students At St James Catholic Primary School


Following are the criteria for enrolment at St James Catholic Primary School. It outlines who is eligible to apply for a place at the school and describes the processes that apply to those seeking enrolment.  Parents and students wishing to enrol will be interviewed by the Principal / Deputy Principal.

By law, children must turn five by the 30th April of their first year of school.

Students who meet the enrolment criteria and have turned five by the 30th April of their first year of school will not be excluded from enrolment.

Students of other Faiths will be considered for enrolment provided this does not result in the exclusion of Catholic students. The parents of these students will be required to give an understanding that they will respect the life, nature and identity of the Catholic School. Non catholic families will be expected to embrace the Catholic ethos of the school and participate in aspects of the Sacramental program. Once enrolled these students will have the right to complete their primary education at the school.

All prospective students will be required to demonstrate that they have received required immunisation, or have necessary documentation stating why they have not participated in the program.
All information gathered during the enrolment process will be maintained according to the Privacy Act 2000.
