Humpybong State School recognises as its prime obligation, the provision of access to an appropriate educational service for students whose principal place of residence is within the school’s catchment area.
Because of enrolment capacity and growth Humpybong State School may be unable to meet this obligation in the future, unless action is taken now to manage enrolments. Therefore Humpybong State School has an Enrolment Management Plan (EMP) determined by Education Queensland.
You may refer to the EMP (https://education.qld.gov.au/parents-and-carers/enrolment/management-plans) and
school catchment map which sets out the conditions under which students may be enrolled into Humpybong State School, subject to any other requirements or limitations in:
This School EMP is supported by:
Student Enrolment Capacity of School
Humpybong State School has a maximum Student Enrolment Capacity which can be located in the latest EMP.
The number of students entering Prep in any given year is not to exceed 125 in 5 classrooms, unless there are more than 125 students enrolling from within the catchment area.
Students within catchment:
Parents or legal guardians who wish to enrol their child at the school will need to demonstrate that the student’s principal place of residence is within the catchment area. Current proof of residency at the address indicated can be provided by way of one of each of the following:
One primary source – a current lease agreement, or rates notice, or unconditional sale agreement, and
One secondary source – a utility bill (e.g. electricity, gas) showing this same address and parent’s/legal guardian’s name.
The Principal may also request a properly sworn Statutory Declaration from the enrolling parent or legal guardian attesting that the student’s principal place of residence is the place nominated in the enrolment application.
Out-of-catchment students applying for enrolment at this school are placed on a waiting list and assessed in order of receipt.
Under the Department’s
State Education Fees procedure, a principal of a state school with an approved School EMP is able to charge a fee for recouping costs of enrolment processing (subject to consultation with the Parents and Citizens’ Association) where:
the enrolment management plan permits the enrolment of a student living outside the catchment area based on cultural, sporting or academic merit, and
the significant number of prospective students living outside the catchment area and applying to enrol results in abnormal administrative costs to the school, for example, enrolment examination supervision and marking.
Acceptance and Assessment Process
Out of catchment enrolment applications will be recorded in order of receipt, by date and time. These applications will remain current only for the school year in which they are applying to enrol.
Decisions on Enrolment
The Principal is responsible for all decisions on enrolments.
Where a Principal forms a preliminary view that an application will not succeed, applicants will be notified in writing. Applicants may respond to the Principal’s preliminary view by making a submission to the Principal, no later than seven school days after receiving the preliminary view letter.
If no submission is received, the Principal’s preliminary view will be treated as the final decision and no further notice will be provided.
If a submission is received, the Principal will consider the submission and make a final decision. A final decision notice will be provided to the applicant as soon as is practicable. There is no internal review of the Principal’s decision.
