Enrolment process

Thank you for your interest in Riverdale Primary School.

Visit the school enrolment section on the department’s website for more information.

Mid-year intake from 2024

From 2024, there will be a mid-year intake into school.

From 2024, if your child turns 5 years between 1 May and 31 October, they can start school in either:

  • term 3 of the same year
  • or term 1 the following year.

Students enrolled through a mid-year intake will complete 6 terms of reception.

Enrolling your child

If you have an enrolment enquiry, please make contact with our office by phone (08) 8281 7166 or send us an email.

Upon enrolment you’ll need to provide a copy of the child’s original birth certificate or passport and proof of address (for example utility bill or lease agreement).  

Transition visits

Before starting school, you’ll receive a letter detailing the dates for your child’s transition visits. These will be held in term 2 for mid-year reception intake and term 4 for reception students starting the following year.
