Enrolment

If your child is currently enroled at another school and you are considering transfering to CSPS please call us on 9782 2999.

 

Foundation Enrolments

Starting school for the first time is a very special milestone for both you and your child. Rest assured, we will help you through this process.

To be eligible for enrolment, a child must have had his/her fifth birthday by April 30 in the year in which he/she commences school.

Am I in the Cranbourne South Primary School zone?

To find out if you are in the zone, go to findmyschool.vic.gov.au and enter your address.

The Education Department (DET) provides guidance through the Placement Policy to ensure that students have access to their designated neighbourhood school and the freedom to choose other schools, subject to facility limitations.  You can find more information and answers to frequently asked questions on the Department’s website under School zones.

‘Where do I start?

We’d like to meet you and your child before enroling at our school.  We will get to know you before we take you on a tour around our wonderful school, answer any questions you may have, and provide you with the relevant documentation.  Tours can be booked from Term 2 onwards for the following school year.

At the conclusion of your tour, we’ll provide an enrolment pack.  Please go away and review this information in your own time and feel free to contact us if you have any questions.  Remember, we are here to help!

 

What do I need to provide?

If you think we are the perfect fit, all documentation must be handed in to the office by the last week of Term 2 (see important dates below).  Only completed documentation will be accepted. This MUST include:

  • Completed Enrolment
  • Your child’s original Birth Certificate and/or original Passport
  • Your child’s Immunisation Certificate/Record* (please see below)
  • Signed Student Medical Details form
  • Signed Acceptable Use of Information Communication Technology (ICT) Policy
  • Signed Photo Non-Consent form
  • If your child lives between two households it is required that an Alternative Family Enrolment Form is completed Adult B.

 

Am I eligible for the Camps, Sports & Excursions Fund (CSEF)?

The Victorian Government provides CSEF to assist eligible families to cover the costs of school trips, camps and sporting activities.  If you hold a valid means-tested concession card or are a temporary foster parent, you may be eligible for CSEF. A special consideration category also exists for asylum seeker and refugee families. The allowance is paid to the school to use towards expenses relating to camps, excursions or sporting activities for the benefit of your child.

 

When will I know if my child is enrolled?

We offer placements usually at the end of July, giving you up to 2 weeks to accept the position. Please call the school on 9782 2999 to confirm your intention to enrol/decline by the end of August.

 

I have confirmed placement, what happens next?

We will be in touch with regards to future events in preparation for the up and coming school year.

 

What about transition programs?

Within 2 weeks after your placement has been confirmed, you’ll receive a letter containing the transition information.  At Cranbourne South Primary School we call it the ‘Step Up to School’ program.  This is an opportunity for your child to experience Foundation and familiarise themselves with our school. Our dedicated teachers and staff will interact and support your child through a variety of fun and engaging activities.

The Step Up to School program includes a mini sports day, four transition sessions and a parent information session.

 

Parent Information Sessions

The parent information session, which is part of our Step Up to School program is an opportunity to provide further information regarding Foundation at CSPS.  Sessions are held during an AM and PM time slot.  We encourage parent/guardians to attend one of these if possible.

 

Early Years Evaluation appointment

 

 

Prior to beginning the school year you will be asked to bring your child in for an Early Years Evaluation (EYE) appointment. An EYE appointment is a 1:1 interview with your child prior to starting school.  The purpose of the EYE is to gain important information about your child’s interests, strengths and prior learning.

Can I enrol for future years?

Unfortunately we don’t keep a waiting list of those wishing to enrol for future years. Please be sure to check back in term 1 of the new school year for updated dates and information for the following year.

 

*New amendments to the No Jab, No Play legislation have tightened requirements for enrolment and impact acceptable documentation for school entry immunisation requirements. An Immunisation History Statement from the Australian Immunisation Register will be the only form of documentation accepted as proof of a child’s immunisation status.

Documents produced by GPs or other immunisation providers will no longer be sufficient as a form of evidence.

Parents must provide an immunisation status certificate, from the Australian Immunisation Register, to the school regardless of whether the child is or is not immunised.
