Enrolment


Year 7 Enrolment
The Legislative and Policy Framework

The Education and Training Reform Act 2006 underpins the Department of Education and Training (DET) enrolment policy which can be found at here or here

 

The enrolment policy states that all students are entitled to enrol at their designated neighbourhood government school. Most Government schools in Victoria have a designated neighbourhood area and a corresponding boundary.


Enrolment at Box Hill High School

Box Hill High School has been allocated a designated neighbourhood boundary by the Regional Director.  Please refer to the designated neighbourhood boundary map on our website. Enrolment at the school is consistent with Government legislation and Departmental policy which states that all students are entitled to enrol at their designated neighbourhood government school.

Box Hill High School follows the Priority Order of Placement clause in the Policy. Students are enrolled in the following priority order:

  1. Students for whom the school is the designated neighbourhood school.

  2. Students with a sibling at the same permanent address who are attending the school at the same time.

  3. Where the regional director has restricted the enrolment, students who reside nearest to the school.

  4. Students seeking enrolment on specific curriculum grounds.

  5. All other students in order of closeness of their home to the school.

  6. In exceptional circumstances, compassionate grounds.

Parents of students in Grade 6 will receive the relevant documentation regarding transition to year 7 in 2019 from primary schools. The Year 7 Placement Forms are issued by the Department of Education and Training and must be returned to the students’ primary school by the specified date.

The primary school will inform the parent of their application outcome on the specified date in August.  Please note that an offer of a place at Box Hill High School for year 7 2019 is subject to providing the required documentation regarding permanent place of address as outlined below.

English Language Assistance

English Language School (ELS) are Government Primary and Secondary schools that cater for new arrival students who are from language backgrounds other than English (LBOTE). Students attend an English Language School for an intensive transition program in English Language prior to enrolment in a mainstream school. The aims are to teach students the language and learning skills to successfully meet the educational demands of schooling and to prepare them for participation in the wider school community.

Students who qualify for English Language assistance will be directed to a government funded language school. Please refer to Blackburn English Language School or any of the Government-funded Language schools listed on the DET website.
