Mount Archer State School offers enrolment to children of compulsory school age.
A student’s application for enrolment may be refused by the principal on a number grounds e.g. not meeting requirements for age or semester allocation. The Director-General may also refuse enrolment of a student if the student poses an unacceptable risk to the safety or well being of the school community.
When creating official school records, the name of the child’s birth certificate is used. Students are able to enrol under a surname the enrolling parent requests if such an action is not intended to defraud, to contravene a court order or infringe the other parent’s rights.
Other documents that detail court orders, parenting agreements and care arrangements will also be required to establish the official school record. These documents have no impact on an enrolment decision, but are essential information for the school to enact the correct procedures for all parties concerned.
