Enrolment

Our school can help with enrolment queries throughout the year.

Local enrolment area

Most schools have designated local enrolment areas. The School Finder shows our local enrolment area. Note: local enrolment areas are subject to change.

How to enrol 

When you’re ready to enrol your child in our school, contact us. You may need to attend an interview with the principal. There you can discuss any medical conditions or other special circumstances before your child starts school. We may also complete a risk assessment on the enrolment.

For more information, visit primary school enrolment or contact us to discuss your child’s enrolment.

Non-local enrolments

As outlined in the department’s enrolment policy, our school may accept enrolments from outside our local enrolment area if places are available.

We will assess applications for non-local enrolment on a case-by-case basis.

Distance education

Distance education is an equity program for students who are geographically isolated or whose individual circumstances prevent them from regularly attending school. Students must meet one of the conditions in the Distance Education Enrolment Procedures to be eligible to access this program as a full-time student.

For more information about educational opportunities in rural areas, visit Rural and distance education.

Students who live outside of the school catchment area can apply to Berry Public School as an out of area enrolment. Out of area enrolments are only accepted if the application meets the school out of area enrolment policy. Please contact the school for enrolment procedures as an out of area enrolment.

Starting School

Children who have a positive start to school are likely to engage and experience ongoing academic and social success.

Our school runs a comprehensive transition program for students beginning Kindergarten. The program involves mulitple orientation sessions for students as well as parent information sessions.

If your child has any specific health or learning needs please contact the school to organise a meeting with the Stage 1 Assistant Principal or Learning Support Teacher.
