A principal who reasonably believes that the enrolment of a prospective student (including a mature age individual) poses an unacceptable risk to the safety or wellbeing of a school community, may refer the enrolment application through the regional director to the Director-General, to make a decision about the prospective student’s enrolment at the school.
Refusal to enrol—risk to safety or wellbeing procedure outlines responsibilities and processes for referring the decision for refusing the enrolment of a prospective student to the Director-General for consideration. The procedure is informed by Chapter 8 Enrolment at State schools of the
Education (General Provisions) Act 2006.
