Please ensure that details relating to your contact information together with the contact details of the other parent, in the event of split families, are kept up to date. For the purpose of recording an alternate family, the Alternate Family Information Form can be obtained from the General Office. Issues such as custody and access must be clearly spelt out.
It is also vital that we are made aware of any medical conditions that might impact on your son/daughter’s health. If there are extra medical conditions a Form can be obtained from the General Office to notify us of these.
Some families will be enrolling from Primary Schools where there is whole school student insurance. It is important that parents note that Kyneton High School does not have student insurance cover. Parents and Guardians are generally responsible for paying the cost of medical treatment for injured students, including any transport costs. Most medical costs will be refundable by Medicare. If you are a member of an ambulance or health insurance fund, you may also be able to claim transport or other expenses from the fund.
The Department of Education and Training does not hold accident insurance for school students. However, the Department is aware of two insurers, JUA Underwriting Agency Pty. Ltd. And Willis Australia Ltd., that provide accident insurance policies for students. These policies provide specific benefits for students who are injured in accidents for a reasonably low cost. Other insurers may also do so.
If your child is unwell or injured at school, we have qualified First Aid Trained Staff who will make every effort to ensure that your child is comfortable until you can arrange collection. We have a dedicated First Aid person available throughout the school day. In the event of a serious accident and we are unable to contact you an ambulance will be called.
Transition Enrolment from Grade 6 to Year 7
At the commencement of Term 2 each year the Victorian Government distributes a package to families of Year 6 students.
Government Primary Schools distribute this to all families to be completed and then returned to the primary school. The primary school then liaises with the family’s nominated secondary school/s to proceed with the enrolment process.
Non-Government schools will determine their distribution method to families of Grade 6 students. You may need to request the package from the school, or you can request a copy from our office by calling 5421 1100.

Enrolment for other year levels
To enrol into Years 8-12 to start at the beginning of the school year, or for any mid-year enrolments, you can send an enrolment inquiry to the Principal on firstname.lastname@example.org, or call the school on 5421 1100.
After this, we will contact you to discuss enrolment and enrolment forms.
All government primary and secondary schools have a school zone. A school zone defines an area’s designated neighbourhood government school. Every Victorian student has a legislated right to enrol at their designated neighbourhood government school (local school).
You can find out which is your neighbourhood government school by entering your address on the Find My School website (www.findmyschool.vic.gov.au) which hosts the most up-to-date information on school zones in Victoria.
Students residing within our school zone are guaranteed a place at our school, which is determined by your permanent residential address. We also consider out-of-zone enrolments.
Our school manages enrolments using the Placement Policy to ensure that students have access to their designated neighbourhood school and may enrol at another school, if there are available places.
If you have a question about school zones you can call the Victorian School Building Authority Hotline on 1800 896 950 or email email@example.com
