Enrolment Applications

All enrolments for the school are carried out by the School Officers located in the Administration Block. Enrolments are not complete until a Birth Certificate (or extract), Immunisation record and Proof of Address have been sighted at the office. Tambrey Primary School is a local intake school, this means students must be residing in the suburbs of Nickol, Nickol West, Jingarri or Tambrey Estate to attend this school. 

New admissions are placed in the appropriate class following the completion of the Student Information Form and a review of the child’s previous schooling. Students who are enrolled elsewhere and the period of attendance is less than four weeks may not be able to attend. Attendance, in this situation, is at the Principal’s discretion. 

In Western Australia, children can start their education in Kindergarten, however compulsory schooling starts the following year in Pre-primary.

Immunsation Requirements (AIR Immunisation History Statement)

Vaccine-preventable diseases, such as measles or mumps, can have serious health consequences for young children and others in the community.

The child care and classroom environment, where children are in close proximity to each other, allows diseases to spread quickly between children who are not fully vaccinated. Other visitors such as parents and other family members, are also at risk if they are not vaccinated.

You can help protect your child by ensuring his or her vaccinations are up-to-date.

Recent legislative changes under the Public Health Act 2016 (WA) (external site) and School Education Act 1999 (WA) (external site) strengthen immunisation requirements in the following ways:

  • When enrolling your child into a child care service, community kindergarten or school you need to provide your child’s current Australian Immunisation Register (AIR) Immunisation History Statement as part of enrolment documentation. The statement must be dated within 2 months of the date of application for enrolment.
  • Child care services and schools may be requested to report the immunisation information of children enrolled, to the Department of Health.
