Belmore School is a school for students who meet the eligibility criteria for the program category of Physical Disability as detailed in Program for Students with Disabilities – Guidelines for Schools 2016.
Parents/carers of children who are considering enrolment are invited to contact our Principal, Karen Overall, to ascertain if your child meets the enrolment eligibility criteria for Belmore School and to organise a personalised tour of the school.
Student enrolment can take place at any time of the school year. The Principal will support the application of enrolment, assessment and funding for students considered eligible for PSD funding. Students with current PSD funding can transfer into the school directly.
Enrolment requirements include:
Completed school enrolment form
Copy of birth certificate or passport
Copy of immunisation record
Copy of medical information and relevant medical plans
(Additional information will be required for the enrolment of overseas students.)
Prior to commencement an enrolment meeting will be held with parents/carers and key school personnel to discuss important information pertinent to your child as a means to identify educational priorities and specific support required. Our team of therapists will also meet with you and your child to undertake a complete assessment of your child’s functional ability. These meetings assist our staff to ensure we know your child and are able to commence the development of a comprehensive individualised learning program to meet their needs.
An individualised program will be developed to support your child’s successful transition into Belmore School. An extensive transition process is organised during Term 4 for our foundation students commencing at the start of the following school year.
Students who live within Belmore School’s designated bus transport zone are eligible for free DET chaperoned bus transport to and from school.
