Applications for enrolment from outside of our Local Intake Area
We consider applications for enrolment from students outside of our local intake area. Where the school has the capacity to accommodate these enrolments, while guaranteeing enough places for students within the local intake area, we will offer a place in the following priority order:
A year of part-time Kindergarten is available at Riva Primary School. While it is not compulsory, almost all parents enrol their children so they get the best start to learning at school. If your child is four years old by 30 June 2024 you can apply to enrol them in Kindergarten for 2024.
Wherever possible, your child will be offered a place at Riva Primary School if they reside within the school’s local intake area, however, if the number of applications for enrolment exceeds the number of places available you may be referred to a nearby Kindergarten which has places available.
The School Education Regulations 2000 specify how we must prioritise enrolment offers for Kindergarten.
Pre-primary – Year 6
Every child of compulsory school age is required to be enrolled in and attend school. Once enrolment is accepted for Pre-primary, or directly into Years 1-6, there is no need to re-enrol each year. Places are guaranteed for all children of compulsory school age who reside within the local intake area of Riva Primary School.
Riva Primary School includes specialised Education Support facilities within our school. If your child has a special educational need, please contact the school to discuss your child’s needs and requirements including:
• your child’s specific diagnosis
• the nature of your child’s special educational needs
• whether your child requires assistance to navigate school grounds
• specialised equipment your child may need
• your child’s personal care and medical needs
• any previous intervention or therapy programs your child has participated in and what the outcomes were.
• The strategies you use at home may be of great help to your child’s teacher so be prepared to talk with them about what you are doing at home.
We will work with you to develop
• an individual education plan, if required, tailored to meet your child’s needs
• systems of communication between you, the school and other professionals who work with your child
• specialist support services and resources available for your child
• ways that your child can participate in school excursions and activities such as swimming lessons
• options for transport to and from school, and if your child is entitled to any assistance.
