Enrolling at our school

Due to the high number of enquiries Ironside State School receives we conduct school tours at 9.30 am each Tuesday and enrolment interviews each Wednesday during the school term. Please contact the office on 07 3258 3111 or email enrolments@ironsidess.eq.edu.au to book a school tour or enrolment interview.

Enrolment interviews can only be booked if parents are able to provide proof of residence in our catchment.

Proof of Residence

Parents who wish to enrol their child at Ironside State School are required to provide proof of their residential address to ensure they reside within the school’s catchment area. The following documents are required:

Owned Property

  • A current Rates Notice or Unconditional Sale Agreement showing an address which falls within the catchment area; and 
  • Utility bills (e.g. electricity, gas, internet etc.) and further evidence that supports the family living in the property (e.g. home and motor vehicle insurance)

Leased Property

  • A current, commercially drawn Lease Agreement. The Lease Agreement must be for 12 months or longer from the child's commencement at school, showing an address which falls within the catchment area; and

  • Utility bills (e.g. electricity, gas, internet etc.), a Rental Bond Receipt lodged with the Residential Tenancies Authority and further evidence that supports the family living in the property (e.g. home and motor vehicle insurance)

The school, if not satisfied may ask for further proof of residency in the form of a Statutory Declaration.

Decisions on Enrolment

The Principal is responsible for all decisions on enrolments. The Principal may require the applicant to provide additional documents or information to support the application.
 
Where a Principal forms a preliminary view that an application will not succeed, applicants will be notified in writing. Applicants may respond to the Principal's preliminary view by making a submission to the Principal, no later than seven school days after receiving the preliminary view letter.
 
If no submission is received, the Principal's preliminary view will be treated as the final decision and no further notice will be provided.
 
If a submission is received, the Principal will consider the submission and make a final decision. A final decision notice will be provided to the applicant as soon as is practicable.
 
There is no internal review of the Principal's decision.
