The tips for visiting schools document can help you select a school.

Managing the paper trail

When beginning to choose a school, you may find that very quickly you end up with lots of information about different schools, information that you would like to share about your child, and information from schools. It may be useful to start a 'transition folder' where you can keep all of the important information in one central spot. A large A4 folder with tab dividers is probably the best option.

Relevant documents/templates such as those listed above, your child's transition booklet can all be contained in this folder alongside individual school contact details and documents including the school annual report, school prospectus and school enrolment form.

To ensure the original is stored safely and you have extra copies handy in case you need them, include several certified copies of the following documents in this folder ready for the enrolment process:

  • birth certificate
  • vaccination records
  • letter of diagnosis
  • current Family Court orders.
