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

Every child from Pre-primary to Year 12 is guaranteed a place at their local public school. Places in Kindergarten are limited, so we encourage you to apply early. Wherever possible this place will be at your local-intake school. Some schools may get more applications than they have places. Belmay is an independent local intake school and accepts students from Kindergarten to year 6 residing within our boundary.

You can find out what year your children need to start school using the school-age calculator - link below.

  2. If the application is accepted then you will be asked to complete an Enrolment form and a Student Health Care Summary, with supporting documentation.

All applications to enrol at Belmay PS are considered on a case by case basis, in accordance with the Department of Education’s Enrolment Policy which can be found at http://www.det.wa.edu.au/policies.
