Enrolment Conditions

Conditions of Enrolment

We understand:

  1. It is an expectation that children enrolled in Preschool will continue to Kindergarten. Parents whose children do not proceed to Kindergarten are required to provide one term’s notice, in writing, to the Principal. The penalty for non-compliance will be payment of a term’s fees being charged in lieu of notice.

If this application is accepted we

  1. Agree to be bound by the present and future rules and regulations of the School and that our son/daughter will be bound by those rules and regulations. The School has the power to expel, suspend or otherwise discipline students in accordance with the School’s Behaviour Management and Discipline Policy, which may from time to time be amended at the discretion of the School.
  2. Agree to encourage our son/daughter to participate fully in all aspects of the life and programs of the School and uphold its ethos and expectations.
  3. Agree to provide our son/daughter with the correct uniform and ensure that it is worn correctly to school and all school occasions and functions where required.
  4. Agree to our liability to pay such fees and charges as are sent by the School, including the recovery of costs incurred by the School with its Commercial Agents.
  5. Authorise the School, in the event of our son/daughter suffering from sickness or injury, to take such action as it deems necessary to obtain medical and/or hospital care and attention, after making all reasonable attempts to contact parents and/or guardians. You indemnify the School, for all costs, expenses and actions, its employees and agents in respect of all costs and expenses arising directly or indirectly out of such treatment.
  6. Agree that if the School Council or the Principal believes that a mutually beneficial relationship of trust and cooperation between the parent and the School has broken down to the extent that it adversely impacts on that relationship, then the School, the School Council or the Principal may require the parent to remove the child from the School.

AND we further agree to be bound by the following:

  1. A non-refundable enrolment acceptance fee of $450.00 per child or $800.00 per family will be required upon acceptance of the enrolment offer.
  2. All fees and charges are payable in advance on the first day of each term. In the event of the term’s fees and charges not being paid within six weeks of commencement of the term, notice may be given requiring the student to be withdrawn from the School pending payment of the outstanding fees and charges.
    • Students who plan to be absent from school for one term or more must give notice to the Principal in writing. Students will be charged full tuition fees during their absence if they wish to maintain their placement in the school. Students will not be charged the Course Levy during the time that they are absent.
    • Current students partaking in an overseas exchange study program must give one term's notice to the Principal in writing. Students will be exempt from paying tuition and course levy fees whilst completing their study program. 5. The School reserves the right in its absolute discretion to discipline a student, including suspension whether temporarily or permanently without a refund of fees.
  4. Parent/guardians are required to complete a 'Student Withdrawal Form' giving one term's written notice if they wish to withdraw a student. Notice must be given prior to the commencement of the last term of attendance. Failure to do this may result in the charge of a full term's fee being charged in lieu of notice.

Standard Collection Notice

  1. The School collects personal information, including sensitive information about students and parents/guardians before and during the course of a student’s enrolment at the School. This may be in writing or in the course of conversations. The primary purpose for collecting this information is to enable the School to provide schooling for your child and to enable them to take part in all School activities.
  2. In making an application for enrolment the School reserves the right to contact a previous school/s to obtain any relevant information the School deems necessary to assess your child's enrolment application.
  3. Some of the information we collect is to satisfy Lindisfarne's legal obligations, particularly to enable the School to discharge its duty of care.
  4. Laws governing or relating to the operation of the School require certain information to be collected and disclosed. These include relevant Education Acts and Public Health and Child Protection Laws.
  5. Health information about students is sensitive as per the terms of the National Privacy Principles under the Privacy Act. We ask you to provide medical reports about students from time to time.
  6. The School, from time to time, discloses personal and sensitive information to others for administrative and educational purposes. This includes other schools, other discrete bodies within Lindisfarne, government departments, the Anglican Schools Commission, medical practitioners and people providing services to the School, including specialist visiting teachers, coaches and volunteers.
  7. If you provide the School with the personal information of others, such as doctors or emergency contacts, we encourage you to inform them that you are disclosing that information to the School and why, that they can access that information if they wish and that the School does not usually disclose information to third parties.
  8. If we do not obtain the information referred to above we may not be able to enrol or continue the enrolment of your child.
  9. Personal information collected from students is regularly disclosed to their parents or guardians. On occasions, information such as academic and sporting achievements, student activities and other news is published in school newsletters, magazines, on our website, and in the general media (e.g. newspapers). Photographs of student activities such as sporting events, school camps and school excursions may be taken for publication in school newsletters and magazines. The School will obtain separate permission from the student’s parent/guardian prior to publication if we would like to include photographs or other identifying material in promotional material for the School or otherwise make it available to the public such as on the Internet.
  10. The School may also store personal information in the ‘Cloud’ which may mean that it resides on servers which are situated outside Australia.
  11. The School’s Privacy Policy (www.lindisfarne.nsw.edu.au) sets out how parents may seek access to personal information collected about them. However, there will be occasions when access is denied. Such occasions would include where access would have an unreasonable impact on the privacy of others, where access may result in a breach of the School’s duty of care to the student, or where students have provided information in confidence.
  12. The Lindisfarne Privacy Policy also sets out how you may complain about a breach of privacy and how the School will deal with such a complaint.
  13. The School provides policy information for your reference and it is an expectation that all policies and procedures are read and understood prior to enrolment. To review these policies please go to the Lindisfarne website (www.lindisfarne.nsw.edu.au).
  14. As you may know the School from time to time engages in fundraising activities. Information received from you may be used to make an appeal to you. It may also be disclosed to organisations that assist in the School’s fundraising activities (Parents and Friends Association) solely for that purpose. We will not disclose your personal information to third parties.
