Choosing a school for your child /children is a really important decision; having faith in the school environment you choose for your child is a critical part of the home – school partnership.
You’re very welcome to come for a tour and to have a chat with us about how we can support your child / children in their academic and their interpersonal development.
We have a four-visit program in Term 4 each year which supports our new students of all ages (and their mums and dads!) to learn about Exford and to feel confident about starting school.
We aim for all children to meet their next year’s teacher and to develop a group of friends. We hold information sessions for parents and help you with organising for the school start.
We invite you to contact the school office to arrange a school tour.
School Catchment Policy
As of Wednesday 8 May 2013, Exford PS School Council implemented the enrolment policy that all new families who wish to enrol their children must live within the enrolment boundary as determined by the DET, with the exception of the siblings of currently enrolled students who reside outside the enrolment boundary. This policy is effective immediately. The estates of Eynesbury, Strathtulloh and Waterford are included in our enrolment zone, as is Exford and parts of Parwan and Mt Cottrell.
The Exford PS Enrolment Policy will apply to all new families wishing to enrol their children at Exford PS from this date.
Our new enrolment guideline supports current children to continue their education at Exford PS, and their siblings may enrol as well. School Council recognises the importance of adhering to the recommended guidelines from the Regional Office, and DEECD supports us in our local decision to include out-of-neighbourhood siblings.
When enrolling a student for the first time, the following are required:
- Completed Schools’ Enrolment Form and Permissions Form
- Proof of Date of Birth (Birth Certificate)
- School Entry Immunisation Certificate (obtainable from the Childhood Immunisation Registry)
- Will you require Out of Hours School Care (before or after school hours)?
Please go online to the OSH Club website and enrol your child online for Exford PS – you can then make bookings as needed.
Children need to be 5 years of age by 30th April in the year that they commence school.
Information about Readiness for School and Transition can also be found on the Department of Education website.
