How to Enrol
If you are interested in enrolling at St Kilda Primary School please call us on 03 9534 3993 and book into a School Tour with our Principal, Sue Higgins, and some of our Seito Kai (our Grade 6 Leadership Team). This will give you a chance to find out more about our lovely school and ask those burning questions.
If St Kilda Primary School is the school for you, please feel free to call into the Office and pick up an Information Pack including Enrolment Forms or you can download the Enrolment and Permission forms below. Whilst you may return these documents by email the hard copy of the signed documents must be received by our Office in order to finalise enrolment.
In addition, it is also necessary to attend our Office with the following original documents as the originals must be sighted before being copied.
- Birth Certificate
- Immunisation Certificate (Refer below for requirements)
- Proof of address (E.g. Current Lease, Rates Notice or Utility Bill)
- Current Visa (If applicable)
If you are currently overseas, please email the school and we will be happy to help.
Which Type of Enrolment Form Should I Complete?
At St Kilda Primary School our primary focus is to keep your children safe and to make sure that in the event that we need to contact you we have all the current accurate information to be able to do so.
The Department of Education (DE&T) has two standard Enrolment Forms to allow for individual family circumstances.
If you are a one household family, then complete the Student Enrolment Form below and the SKPS Consent Forms (please choose the forms for the year that your child will commence at SKPS, e.g. for an enrolment for this year, choose the 2022 Consent Forms. If you are enrolling a child for 2023, please complete the Consent Forms for 2023).
If you are a two household family, i.e. parents do not live together, then parents/carers will need to complete the Student Enrolment Form (Primary Family) and an Alternative Family Form as well. Each parent must also complete their own copy of the relevant SKPS Consent Forms for the year of commencement.
The DE&T defines the Primary Family as the family or parent the student mostly lives with. If the student spends most of the time with one parent, that parent should complete the Enrolment Form as Adult A. The parent that the student spends the lesser time with should complete the Alternative Family Form as Adult A.
If custody is equal then the parents/carers can decide which Form they each complete.
There is absolutely no difference in status or priority of Adults in the Primary versus Alternative Families. Both Adults of each type of family have equal rights and responsibilities regarding their child (unless we are advised otherwise via Court Order).
Each of the Primary and Alternate Families are able to record their own home and mailing addresses, family doctor and emergency contacts as well as allowing for adding new partners/spouses. This arrangement also allows us to provide you with individual Compass login details.
Please do not hesitate to contact the Office for assistance in the completion of the correct Enrolment Forms for your child and family circumstances.

Update of Changed Circumstances
Please make sure that you advise the School of any changed contact details or relevant information about your child by email so that our records remain accurate.
If at any time during your child’s enrolment with SKPS your Primary Family becomes a two household family, the DE&T requires these details be updated. The office can assist you with the completion of the appropriate forms for your circumstances.
It is important to note that our Compass Parent Portal will only issue one login per family unless the Alternative Family Enrolment Form has been filled in.
The amendments to the No Jab, No Play legislation have tightened requirements for enrolment in early childhood services and impact acceptable documentation for school entry immunisation requirements.
By law, we are required to request and record information on the immunisation status of students prior to enrolment. Parents or guardians must provide an immunisation status certificate to the school regardless of whether the child is immunised or not.
An Immunisation History Statement from the Australian Immunisation Register is the only form of documentation accepted as proof of a child’s immunisation status when you are enrolling a child at SKPS.
Documents produced by GPs or other immunisation providers will no longer be sufficient as a form of evidence. There is no requirement to produce this certificate if your child is already enrolled at school.
