Enrolling your child

When to enrol:

As soon as your child turns 4 or as soon as you know you are moving to an address within our school zone.

Who can enrol:

We have an enrolment scheme, which determines who can enrol with us, based on their home address being within Ashgrove School zone.

How to enrol:

Phone the school and make an appointment to meet with the Deputy Principal.  It's a good idea to bring your child with you to this meeting, as they will get a chance to have a look around the school too.

What happens next:

At the meeting with the Deputy Principal, s/he will tell you about our school and how we do things.  S/he'll ask questions about your child and you can ask any questions you have too.  You'll go for a walk around the school, get to have a look at the space your child will be learning in and meet some of the teachers.  If your child is a new entrant, you can also discuss the Transition to School Programme.

New Entrant School visits:

These take place during the weeks preceding your child's birth / start date.  School visits are generally Friday morning (8.40am - 10.30am) and Tuesday morning (8.40am to 11.30am).

Prior to starting school:

Before your child starts their first day with us, we need the completed enrolment form and proof of residence in zone, along with a copy of your child's birth certificate (if they are a new entrant), immunisation certificate and passport with valid visas (if applicable).

Out of zone enrolments:

The Ashgrove School Board of Trustees has decided not to take any out of zone enrolments for 2015.
