Forms and Processes

Welcome to Oteha Valley School. We understand it’s a big decision choosing where to start your child’s educational journey so we’re here to make it a positive experience.  Oteha Valley School is open to any child living within our school zone who meets the criteria of a domestic student. 


What is the enrolment process?

Children starting school for the first time (New Entrants)

When your child turns four please complete and return the pre-enrolment form.  While this doesn’t commit you to enrolling your child, it enables us to plan ahead.

Around six weeks before your child turns five the school will contact you. A full enrolment pack will be posted to you and we will organise two visits to the school before your child starts. On the first visit, we invite both you and your child to the classroom and on the second visit we encourage you to give your child time in the classroom on their own.

You will need to complete the enrolment pack before your child is officially enrolled. Children can start school on or after the day they turn five.

New to the area?  Already attended another school?

Please contact the office for an enrolment pack. They will arrange a time for you and your child to meet with the principal who can answer any questions you have. Please bring along proof that you live within our school zone, your child's birth certificate or passport, visa (if applicable) and their immunisation certificate.
