Enrolment of child/children at St Mary’s Parish School requires a commitment from the parents/guardians to the Catholic Ethos of the school. This commitment entails acceptance of the policies that have been developed through consultation with the community that bear in mind the individual family and their circumstances.
Enrolment is open to all children whose parent/s or guardian/s subscribe to the Catholic Ethos of the school, who support the interpretation of curriculum and for whom the school is able to provide an appropriate education.
Enrolment of children with additional needs would follow the recommendations of the Special Needs Enrolment Policy of the Toowoomba Catholic Education Office. In exceptional education or pastoral circumstances, enrolment would be at the discretion of the Principal in consultation with the Parish Priest and School Board.
Upon enrolment there is an expectation that all fees and levies will be paid. If financial circumstances change it is the responsibility of the parent/s or guardian/s to notify the Principal, Parish Priest or their delegates, so that alternate arrangements can be made.
Acceptance of Enrolment
Enrolment does not automatically follow as a result of completing all the enrolment procedures. The Principal will take into account all the relevant factors for and against enrolment including class sizes, available spaces and resources, and the parent/s or guardian/s reasons for enrolment. Previous reports and documentation including any Occupational Therapy reports, learning support history and whole school testing results.
Termination of enrolment is a possibility when the attitude or behaviour of a student creates serious conflict with the philosophy and/or Vision and Mission statements of the school. In such instances the case will be managed according to the policy of the Toowoomba Catholic Education Office.
Upon accepting enrolment, it is understood that your child’s enrolment automatically makes you a member of the Parent & Friends Association and payment of a P & F levy is expected. Participation and attendance at monthly meetings is strongly encouraged.
