Enrolments for 2022 now Open
You need to apply to enrol your children in school for 2022 if they are:

  • Starting Kindergarten – 4 years old by 30 June 2022

  • Starting Pre-Primary, the first year of compulsory school – 5 years old by 30 June 2022

  • Changing schools.

Kindergarten Applications

If your child is 4 years old by 30 June 2022 you will need to apply to enrol for Kindergarten.

Kindergarten  is not compulsory but most Western Australian children attend because it helps give them the best start to school. There is a place for all eligible children in Kindergarten programs in public schools. Wherever possible this place will be at your local-intake school.

 

Some schools may get more applications than they have places.

Applications are prioritised. If a place is not available, the school will help you apply to another school close by.

  • Priority 1 - In boundary with sibling

  • Priority 2 - in boundary without sibling

  • Priority 3 - out of boundary with sibling

  • Priority 4 - out of boundary

  • Priority 5 - distance from school
     

When you make an application for your child you need to make sure that:

  • your child’s age entitles them to a place 

  • your child is a permanent residence of Australia or holds a visa with an approved sub-class.

You need to provide

 

Evidence of your child’s age and residential status is needed when making an application to enrol your child in a kindergarten or pre-primary program in a public school. This evidence includes:

  • a birth certificate or extract of birth or passport – contact the Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages on 1300 305 021 if you don’t have a copy

  • full Up to Date immunisation records – contact the Australian Immunisation Register on 1800 653 809.  

    • Western Australia now has immunisation laws that will help to better protect our children and the wider community from vaccine-preventable diseases.

    • When you enrol your child in Kindergarten you will need to provide your child’s current Australian Immunisation Register (AIR) Immunisation History Statement, which shows your child is ‘up-to-date’ with all the scheduled immunisations (according to the National Immunisation Program) for their age. This Statement must be no more than two months old.

    • If you would like to know more about the immunisation requirements, obtaining an AIR Immunisation History Statement or how to access immunisation services go to HealthyWA.

  • proof of residential address (e.g. rates bill or telephone bill).

  • any Family Court orders.

  • Visa details if applicable

 

Enrolment guarantee

Although there is a place for every eligible child in kindergarten, an application does not guarantee enrolment at Belmont Primary School.  
 

Placement in a kindergarten program in a specific school is dependent on the number of places available at that school.

Note: Children may be enrolled in Kindergarten in one school only, either public or private.  In the event that statements made on the application later prove to be false or misleading, a decision on the application may be reversed.  Information supplied may need to be checked by the school.
 

In most cases, your child will be offered a place at your local public school or a Community Kindergarten linked to your local school. However, if the number of Kindergarten applications exceeds the number of places available, you may be referred to a nearby Kindergarten which has places available. Every effort is made to accommodate your child in a school as close as possible to your home.
