How To Enrol Your Child
All applications will be processed in order of receipt and consideration will be given to the applicant’s support for the ethos of the school, siblings already attending the school and other criteria determined by the school from time to time.
For first steps, please email our enrolments officer at firstname.lastname@example.org
with your child/children's details:
Your current address (we mostly can only accept families within a 30km radius due to the volume of applicants we need to ensure local families are catered to)
Where your child is currently enrolled and why you have chosen Steiner Education for your child.
If we have space or see space opening for your child/children, we will organise a time to come to the school for an interview.
The Margaret, our School Founder will conduct a formal interview with the prospective parents and child to discuss school details and expectations, child and family situation and any special circumstances: family, medical, religion, diet, disabilities, allergies, special gifts and talents, particular interests etc.
Parents need to inform the school of any health-care and disability needs and liaise with the teacher in relation to any medical issues the child may have and if necessary develop a management plan.
Following the interview the school will give the parents a letter of offer if both parties agree on the enrolment proceeding.
All enrolments comply with the Disability Discrimination Act.
There is no discrimination on sexual, racial or religious grounds.
Once enrolled, students are expected to support the school’s ethos and comply with the school rules to maintain the enrolment.
