Enrolment Information


To enquire about enrolment at McLaren Flat, please complete the Expression of Interest Form via the link below and return to the school.  McLaren Flat prioritises enrolment of students for whom we are their school of right – as in the nearest public school to their usual home address. Pre enrolment tours and interviews with the Principal or Deputy can be arranged via the front office.


There is only one intake of Reception students which occurs at the beginning of the school year. Children who turn five years of age before May 1st of that school year are eligible to start school at the beginning of Term 1. Children who turn five years of age on or after May 1st of that school year will need to start school the following year in Term 1.


Children at may also be enrolled at other times during the year when transferring from other schools.

Transition: Kindergarten to Reception

In term 4 of each year, prior to commencing school, kindergarten children have the opportunity to participate in a transition program to help prepare and orient them, and their families for life at school. The timing of the visits is coordinated with our feeder kindergartens and children generally build up their time at school over the course of the visits. Enrolment packages are distributed at the beginning of the K-R transition process.
