Local Intake Area

Local Intake (Boundaries)

Maylands Peninsula Primary School is a Department of Education designated Local-Intake school. This means we are only able to accept enrolments from a specific area around the school. Shaded areas on this linked map indicate optional local-intake areas for neighbouring schools - please refer to the map description below for further details.

The boundary parts of Kennedy Street (both sides), Carrington Street (both sides) and Central Avenue (north side) are included within this optional area.

Note:
The local-intake area maps are based on a written description of the local-intake area (LIA) for the school as published in the WA Government Gazette.  Although the map closely represents the LIA description, for some houses near the boundary (especially on street corners), it may be necessary to refer to the written description.  The street address of a residence is used to determine whether that dwelling is inside a particular LIA.  While local-intake areas for most schools do not change from year to year, changes may be made to local-intake areas as required.  Such changes are published in the WA Government Gazette and subsequently the local-intake area map will be updated.

Applications to Change Schools

Please refer to the General Information above.

You will be notified by the principal at the earliest possible opportunity if your application is accepted. In the majority of cases, parents will be advised within two working days.

Once accepted, you will be required to complete enrolment procedures at the school.

You will need to supply evidence of your child's progress from the previous school. This can be in the form of reports, records or samples of work.

If your child has gained enrolment from outside the local-intake area into a specialist program, their siblings will not be guaranteed enrolment in the school.

Please note: It is a requirement of the Department of Education that any information on suspensions and exclusions is provided to the school at the time of applying to enrol a child. This information will help the school to provide your child with the appropriate support, if required. Children currently under suspension from a public school cannot be enrolled at another public school until the suspension period expires. Children who have previously been suspended or excluded from a public school may be required to enter into a behaviour agreement with the school if enrolment is accepted.

1. TRANSPORT

If you are applying to attend a school other than your local school, transport be your responsibility. All enquiries regarding school bus services should be directed either to the school where Application for Enrolment is being submitted or to the Public Transport Authority.

2. APPEALS

Should you disagree with a school's decision regarding your Application for Enrolment you can appeal to the Regional Education Office in the district in which the school is located.

The Regional Education Office will then seek to verify whether the process for managing Applications for Enrolment have complied with Departmental policies and guidelines. Prior to submitting an appeal, however, it is recommended that you contact the principal or the Coordinator of Regional Operations at the Regional Education Office to discuss your grievance informally. Appeal forms are available at Appendix C1, or from the school or the Regional Education Office.

For parents of students with a disability - If you remain dissatisfied with the decision about placement of your child, you may request an independent review of the decision. You should put your request in writing to the Director General of Education, through the relevant Regional Executive Director. A Disabilities Advisory Panel will be convened to review the placement decision. An opportunity will be provided by the panel for you to present your case. The Regional Executive Director will be able to provide you with detailed information about the panel.

3. CONFIDENTIALITY

All information provided on this form will be treated confidentially. Section 242 of the School Education Act 1999 and the Department of Education's Information Privacy and Security policy preclude this information from being used for any purpose other than:

  • to determine whether your application for enrolment can be accepted;
  • to assist the school with addressing any needs for your child if enrolment is accepted; and
  • to comply with legal requirements or ministerial directions.
