Enrolment Policy

Enrolment Policy 

Starting School

As per the DfE administrative instructions and guidelines, children are not required to attend school until they are six years old.  Where a child turns five before May 1, they will start school on the first day of term one of that year. Where a child turns five on or after May 1, they will start school on the first day of term one the following year. The minimum age for starting school will be four years and eight months.

Proof of Age

At the time of enrolment, parents/guardians are required to provide proof of their child’s birth age.  The following documents will be accepted by schools in this regard passport or birth certificate, or official Centrelink documentation stating the child’s name and birth date.

Early Entry - Gifted Students

The decision as to where a child (in year level terms) attends at his/her school is determined according to the ‘educational attainments’ of the child. The principal makes this decision. For further information, refer to DfE gifted and talented students policy.


Nailsworth Primary School is one of the approximately 60 primary and secondary metropolitan schools that are zoned. Students whose permanent and primary place of residence is within the Nailsworth zone are automatically eligible to enrol in the school.  As the school is at capacity, families need to provide, at the time of enrolment, proof of the child’s primary place of residence.  The documentation required for enrolment is outlined in another tab in the enrolment section. 

Sibling Rights Rule

Where a sibling currently attends Nailsworth Primary School, enrolment is guaranteed. Half-brothers and sisters are blood relatives and therefore, as per the DfE sibling rights rule, are also guaranteed enrolment.  Step-brothers and sisters who are not blood relatives can only be guaranteed entry to the same school as their step-siblings if they are residing at the same primary place of residence as the step-siblings who also attend Nailsworth Primary School. If a break-in attendance of that family occurs at the school for more than 12 months, then sibling rights no longer apply.

Right of Return

Where students have been enrolled at Nailsworth Primary School, and they cease their enrolment with that school, they have a right to return to the Nailsworth Primary School for a period of 12 months.

The approved zone for Nailsworth Primary School can be found on the school or DfE website.
