BEST PRACTICE GUIDELINES

THE ENROLMENT PROCESS

All new applicants wishing to enrol at Salamah College need to complete the Expression of Interest Form  which can be forwarded to the school at any time for consideration, however within an appropriate time frame prior to an interview process.
The Expression of Interest form for new students requires a basic student information, school connection and family information.
The form is returned to the Enrolment Officer, an acknowledgement letter is sent and student information is entered on the school’s database.
An interview may be required for new students.

All those who have completed an Expression of Interest Form are contacted by the Enrolment Officer prior to the entrance exam.  The Information Form accompanies a letter regarding the enrolment process and includes the Enrolment Contract and current Fee Schedule .
On completion of the Information Form, these are returned to the Enrolment Officer where they are checked for completed information.
Where documentation is missing, families are contacted to provide the appropriate data.
Once documentation is complete the Enrolment Officer arranges an interview with the Principal or his delegate if required and will notify the parents of the entrance exam.
The Information Form and any other necessary documentation is required to be returned by a specific date and the entrance exam and interview process where applicable cannot proceed unless the Information Form is completed by that date.
Where additional information or reports are required, the enrolment application process may take longer.

A formal letter will be posted to inform parents about the date of the entrance assessment and interview. This normally takes place in term 3 of each year.
For annual intake of students, interviews with the family and the applicant, where applicable are held up to a 2 month period as arranged by the Enrolment Officer.
It is the school’s responsibility that parents/guardians be made aware of full and frank disclosure requirements when completing the Information Form.  This includes advising parents/guardians that failing to provide relevant details and assessments may result in the cancellation of an enrolment interview.
Parents/guardians will be required to discuss their financial capacity to pay fees and the options open to them to do so in fee and voluntary contribution payments.

The enrolment officer informs the applicant the family by phone or through a letter of an offer of enrolment.
The parents/guardians and applicant sign the Enrolment Contract and return it to the Enrolment Officer.  A signed Enrolment Contract is retained by school and one copy is retained by the parents/guardians.
Parents accepting the School’s offer should return the Enrolment Contract with the non-refundable Enrolment Fee $150 to confirm their acceptance.
If no offer of placement is made, the parents/guardians will be informed in writing.

Parents/Guardians’ Enrolment Contract is a legally binding contract between the parents/guardians and Salamah College.
The school will acknowledge enquiries in the most appropriate and timely manner according to its documented procedures.
