Enrolment Information
Enrolment Priority

Knowing how we prioritiseĀ enrolments is important for you enrolling your child at St James the Apostle Primary School.

Subject to any special exercise of discretion by the Parish Priest, the following list provides an agreed order of priority for enrolment in our school, which is consistent with the enrolment policy for all Catholic primary schools. The order of priority is:

  1. Siblings of children already enrolled;
  2. Catholic children who are residents of the parish;
  3. Catholic children who do not reside in the parish but are recognised as parishioners by the Parish Priest;
  4. Catholic children from other parishes (for pastoral reasons);
  5. Children from non-Catholic Eastern churches who reside in the parish;
  6. Children from non-Catholic Eastern churches who reside outside the parish;
  7. Non-baptised children of Catholic parent(s);
  8. Other Christian children who reside in the parish;
  9. Other Christian children who reside outside the parish;
  10. Non-Christian children who reside in the parish; and
  11. Non-Christian children who reside outside the parish.
