Enrolment Management Committee
The following enrolment plan was established by the Clover Hill State School community following consultation between the Principals of Clover Hill State School, Mudgeeraba State School, Mudgeeraba Creek State School, Robina State School and Robina State High School.
The plan was formulated to ensure that the school could continue to serve the communities for which it was built. To operationalise the plan the school has adopted a catchment boundary which identified all local residents for whom the Clover Hill State School is the closest State School, providing admissions criteria are satisfied.
Clover Hill State School recognises as its prime obligation the provision of access to an appropriate educational service for students resident within this community as defined by its local catchment area.
Because of enrolment capacity and growth Clover Hill State School may be unable to meet this obligation in future, unless action is taken now to manage enrolment.
This plan sets out the conditions under which students may be enrolled into Clover Hill State School.
The school currently has the capacity to enrol up to 946 students in 40 learning spaces/classrooms.
The school's enrolment capacity for students who live outside the local catchment is dependant upon:
The local catchment area is based on equidistance boundaries with other schools. The attached map defines the boundary area for which Clover Hill State School is the closest school by trafficable route. Should this capacity change because of changes to road networks, this will be formally notified through the registration and gazettal of an amended plan including the operative date for the new catchment area.
As Clover Hill State School is in an area that is still being developed, or has the potential for re-development, the catchment boundary has the potential to change as new trafficable routes are established. This Plan will be updated if the catchment area changes with an operative date. During this transition phase students who live within the new proposed enrolment boundary will be allowed to enrol at the school.
Programs for students with disabilities are regional programs for students whose educational support needs are additional to, or different from, other students. Students who live outside the catchment area and are verified with a disability can enrol in the school to attend the program if it the closest program to their home and meets their individualised need.
All students who reside within the local catchment area and are eligible for enrolment in the educational program offered by the school have a right to enrolment at the school. The Principal will hold places for students who relocate to within the catchment boundary throughout the school year.
Enrolment of students from outside the local catchment area will be managed to ensure that the total current and forecast enrolments do not exceed the school's current built capacity and where applicable will ensure there is an even spread of students across year levels or class groupings.
The school's enrolment management plan does not replace other departmental policy; for example Safe, Supportive and Disciplined School Environment, nor does it override subsequent determinations regarding built school capacity.
Students who reside outside the school's local catchment boundary and apply for enrolment at the school will be put on a waiting list in order of receipt of application. Where there is spare capacity, students will be enrolled from the waiting list based on the following criteria and order of priority:
Parents who wish to enrol their child/ren at Clover Hill State School under the Enrolment Management Plan will need to demonstrate that the child/ren to be enrolled, reside within the catchment area. The following documentation may be required if requested by the principal:
Applications for admission into Years Prep-7 will be accepted each year from the beginning of Term 3 for enrolment to commence from the beginning of Term 1 the following year.
Applications will be recorded in order of receipt.
Applications will remain current only for the year of submission.
All enrolment applications will be considered on merit in accordance with the enrolment criteria.
Parents wishing to have an unsuccessful enrolment application reviewed may seek clarification from the principal. Parents may provide a written submission seeking a review of an unsuccessful enrolment application. This submission should present evidence to substantiate a claim that the stated criteria have not been applied fairly and equitably.
The Enrolment Management Committee will review written submissions and the reply should be in writing within 14 days of submission.
The enrolment management committee consists of:
Further appeal should be directed to the Regional Director whose decision will be final.
