Admissions Policy:

  1. All children have the legal right to full-time schooling from the September after the child’s 4th birthday.
  2. Parents may opt to:
  • Defer the starting date for full time schooling up to the start of the term after their child’s 5th birthday;
  • Request part-time schooling for their child up to the start of the term after their child’s 5th birthday.

PLEASE NOTE: there is no guarantee of a place at our school for any child because she/he lives in our school’s priority admission area. 

Parents who are unsuccessful with their applications may appeal and ECC Planning & Admissions will fully explain this process.
