Enrolment process

If your child turns 5:  

  • before 1 May, they can start primary school at the start of the year. 
  • after 1 May, they can start the next year. 

Your child must be at school by their 6th birthday.  

If our school is not your local school, you can still apply to enrol, but enrolment will only be offered if we have places available.  

Visit the school enrolment section on the department’s website for more information.
