Enrolment

The school's enrolment policy is consistent with the Sydney Archdiocesan Catholic School Board's Document.  We welcome enquiries about enrolment at any time during the year so please contact the school (see the below 'Contact Us' link).  

Priority is given to Catholic families. If there are sufficient vacancies, non-Catholic families and families who reside in or outside our catchment area may be offered a place in the school. Click here for a map of our catchment area.

Enrolment Forms can be downloaded and printed.  Forms can be completed electronically if you download the document.  This form needs to be completed in full, signed by both parents and returned along with all relevant documents and the $60 non-refundable enrolment fee to the school office.  If you need an explanation of any of the questions or help in completing this application, please ask for assistance from the school office. Once all documents have been received we will then make an interview time for you and your child to meet with our Principal.

The official enrolment period for Kindergarten 2020 commences in March 2019 but we are happy to accept any completed enrolment applications from now.   We will be holding an Open Morning (9.30am to 11am) and an Open Evening (5.30pm to 7pm) on Tuesday March 5th for prospective new families.  Please call the school to book into one of the sessions.  Enrolment Packs will also be available at both sessions.   Please contact the school office (9808 2658) if you have any enquiry about enrolment for Kindergarten in 2020.

Completed forms can be posted to 2 Hughes Street, West Ryde, emailed to info@smpsmeadowbank.catholic.edu.au or dropped into the school office.

Protocol for Enrolment of Students with Diverse Learning Needs

Copies of all information relative to the specific learning needs of the student applying for enrolment must be disclosed to the school.

Examples include any of the following:

* Paediatric reports related to medical conditions,
* Therapeutic interventions,
* Psychometric assessments,
* Speech and language clinical reports or
* Occupational therapy reports.

In the case of Kindergarten enrolments, staff from our school and the Sydney Catholic Schools Office may visit the preschool of the student applying for enrolment to discuss educational matters.

If the enrolment application is successful:

* The above documentation must be updated as further assessments occur or as additional information becomes available.
* It is essential that parents/carers co-operate when the School Principal or delegated teacher may need to discuss the educational support of the student with the relevant practitioner.
* This information may be forwarded to the Sydney Catholic Schools Office in order to ascertain possible additional education support.
* The special needs information supplied during the course of enrolment within a Catholic school will be forwarded to another Catholic school, if enrolment is sought at that school (e.g when moving from Primary to Secondary school, or moving from one Primary to another etc.).
* It is essential that parents/carers co-operate with the Principal in obtaining appropriate medical/educational/behavioural assessments or advice in relation to the student’s educational progress.
