School Enrolment Management Plan
Forest Lake State School recognises as its prime obligation, the provision of access to an appropriate educational service for students whose principal place of residence is within the school's catchment area.
Because of enrolment capacity and growth, Forest Lake State School may be unable to meet this obligation in the future unless action is taken to manage enrolments. The Principal must restrict the enrolment of out-of-catchment students to ensure in-catchment students can enrol at their local state school without requiring additional facilities.
Student enrolment capacity
Forest Lake State School has a maximum student enrolment capacity of 1,153 students in 50 classrooms.
Local catchment area
A school's local catchment area is the defined geographical area from which the school is to have its core intake of students.
Forest Lake State School operates under an equidistant catchment area.
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, or likely to be verified with a disability can enrol in the school to attend the program if it is the closest program to their home and meets their individualised need.
The school's catchment map is available from
Enrolment policy and procedure
Enrolment policy includes further information about in-catchment and out-of-catchment enrolments, acceptance and assessment processes, as well as any associated fees and decisions on enrolments.
For further information regarding School Enrolment Management Plans, please refer to the
School Enrolment Management Plans Procedure or contact the school Principal.
The School Enrolment Management Plan is internally reviewed each year, and if required, updated to reflect any changes to student enrolment capacity and/or Programs of Excellence.
