Enrolment Process & Forms


Starting Primary School: The Enrolment Process

The first step to enrolling your child at Fairfield Primary School is to complete the Student Enrolment Form. A paper version of the form is available at the school office, or you may complete the online version and email it to us.


If you are a separated family, one parent will need complete the Student Enrolment Form and the other parent will need to complete the Alternative Family Student Enrolment Form.


When submitting the Student Enrolment Form, also attach:

  • Your child’s Birth Certificate
  • Your child’s Immunisation Certificate/Record
  • Proof of residence – utility bill, driver’s licence, rental agreement, etc. (for new families to the school.)

Please note:

  • To commence primary school, children must be five years old by 30th April the year they start school.
  • At Fairfield Primary School, we accept enrolments for the following year from March onward. We do not manage a wait list – so we do not accept enrolments beyond the next school year.
  • If you have enrolment questions, please contact the school office.


Upon receipt of your enrolment, an appointment may be scheduled for you and your child/ren to meet with the Principal or Assistant Principal to further discuss your application.


School Tours

Each year around May/June, we host school tours for families with kindergarten-aged children who plan to start school the following year. This year, we are offering virtual on-demand tours that provide insights into school life at Fairfield PS, as well as live video information sessions with the Principal. These chat sessions are an opportunity to find more about our school and have your questions answered.


We encourage all prospective families to watch the virtual tour videos and join a live chat session, which can be accessed here.


Enrolment Submitted – What’s Next?

Families of kindergarten children are encouraged to submit their enrolment form for the coming year by end of June. At Fairfield Primary School, we email our placement offers at the end of July and our transition program is held in November.

Enrolment Process for Student in Years 1 – 6

If your family is relocating, or you are interested in having your children attend Fairfield Primary School, we ask that you first get in touch with the school to organise a tour.  After a tour, we will walk you through the enrolment process and timeline.
