The school takes enrolments all year. Kindergarten enrolment for any year requires that your child must turn 5 on or prior to 31st July of that year.
When enrolling you need to bring a birth certificate or passport for your child, immunisation records and proof of address (rates notice, lease agreement, water or land rates etc).
There is a Kindergarten Open Day in Term 3 of each school year prior to your child starting Kindergarten. The school contacts local preschools early in that year advising them of enrolment procedures.
For more information on enrolling please contact the school.
Our school can help with enrolment queries throughout the year.
Oatley Public School is situated near the Georges River drawing students from a wide range of socio-economic backgrounds. The School’s feeder area is bound by Hurstville Road to the north, Georges River to the east and south and the railway line to the west and includes the Southern, Llewelyn, Yarran, Boorara street peninsular.
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.
At 4 years or prior to school entry, children are due for injections of combined Measles, Whooping Cough, Diphtheria Tetanus (CDT) vaccine and booster dose of Sabin Oral vaccine.
An immunisation certificate stating whether immunisation has taken place must be presented to the school for all Kindergarten children enrolling. Children who are not immunised may be excluded from school during major epidemics.
How to enrol
Contact us when you’re ready to enrol your child in our school. 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.
Students living outside of the Oatley Public School feeder area are required to complete this form. The School Council will then be consulted for further recommendation of eligibility for acceptance. Please ensure you have completed the specific criteria for out of area placement. Guaranteed enrolments are advised by the end of Term 3 of that same year.
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 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.
More detailed information on various aspects of the school can be obtained from the School Information Booklet and the Annual School Report. The school office may also be contacted to answer specific questions.
