Enrolments – Criteria
Students enrolling in an Education Support Centre/Schools need to complete an Application to Enrol in an Education Support Centre Form. These forms are available at your local school. This form needs to be completed in conjunction with yourself and your current school who will forward it on to the District Senior Lead Psychologist for approval. Once this approval has been received the school can give you an enrolment package. Enrolments can be made at the front office. You will be required to provide your child’s birth certificate and immunisation record. An enrolment form and internet/photo permission form will need to be completed.
The Department of Education allows school Principals and school boards to establish funds for sporting equipment, incidental materials, educational tours and more. All schools ask for some form of contribution from parents. These additional expenses are very important to your child’s learning and offer additional skills and experiences that help their education. For this reason we ask that you support your school by paying your School Voluntary Contribution and Charges. You can do this at the front office during opening hours. We request that you supply the correct money, cheque or you can direct debit into the school’s bank account.
To be eligible, parents/guardians must hold one of the following cards:
- Centrelink Family Health Care Card
- Centrelink Pensioner Concession Card
- Veterans’ Affairs Pensioner Concession Card
Parent/guardian must be the holder of a valid card. The allowance is paid up to and including the year the students turns 18 years of age.
You will receive application forms at the beginning of Term 1 which are to be completed and returned to the school by the due date of which you will be advised. For more information, please contact our Manager of Corporate Services.

Students should arrive at school between 8.30 and 8.40am. Supervision is provided from 8.15am. Unfortunately we are unable to provide supervision before 8.15am.
Children who arrive at school on time are more relaxed and feel more organised, so we encourage you to assist your child in learning skills that will enable them to be punctual.
If you are going to be late picking your child up at the end of the day, please notify the school office as soon as possible on 9722 2480.
Please do not send your child to school if they are unwell.
Any student who is known to have contracted a medical condition that may be infectious, contagious or otherwise harmful to health of another person at school will need to stay home and away from other students for a period of time as advised by the Executive Director of Public Health or by registered medical practitioner.
Every day your child attends school, they will learn something new so it is very important that they come to school every day. In Australia, attendance at school is compulsory from Pre-Primary onwards.
Of course, there are many reasons why children may need to be absent from school occasionally.
If your child is absent, please contact the school on 9722 2480. If an absence is unexplained, we will contact you.
The school has an SMS notification system. If your child is absent and no notice has been given to the school we will notify you via SMS by 11am each day. Please ensure your mobile phone number is up to date.
Teachers also appreciate, if possible, some notice if your child’s absence is known beforehand so that they can make adjustments to your child’s learning program.
Where a child is required to have prescribed medication during the school day, it is mandatory that your doctor provides the document "Medication Instructions from Prescribing Doctor".
In particular circumstances permission may be obtained to have teaching staff administer medications at school.
Medications for administration should be contained in a properly labelled container and an Administration of Medication Form filled out. Please ensure the medication is delivered to the school and given directly into the care of administration.
The elected body of parents and teachers work together to formulate educational objectives and priorities, and review how the school is going in achieving these priorities.
The school has established policies in a number of areas. These policies are created and reviewed when the need arises. Policies are presented to the School Board for discussion. Current school policies include:
Medical and first aid
Camps and excursions
Crisis management and emergency procedures
Reporting and assessment.
Meet the Board
Chaired by our Community Representative, Stephanie Tucker and with Parent Representatives Bec Jacob, Mistty Garret and School Representatives Elyece Robertson and Claudine Deering. The School Board plays an active role in endorsing our annual report, financial budget and supporting our community, bringing parent and carer voices to ensure school operations are assessed and improved.
The School Board played a large part in our Public School Review in 2021. Their voice alongside our staff and community members spoke of our relationships and partnerships within and external to the school.
In 2021 we introduced the Student Executive attending the School Board meetings. Students were able to give the board an overview of how they had represented our school that term as well as answer any questions the board may have had around being a student at NMESC.
Smart Rider Card
Newton Moore ESC students require a student ID/Library Card. The ID card has several functions – one side of the card will be the SmartRider card which enables students to access concession travel on Transbunbury bus services, Transperth bus, rail and ferry services, and TRANSWA country road and rail services. The reverse side of the card will allow students to borrow school text books and resources from the library, and reset their computer passwords. It must also be used when purchasing tickets for school socials, and for ID when entering school socials. Cinemas will also accept it as proof of student status.
The Senior High School hold fortnightly assemblies. They are held in the Gym and our students attend with their form groups.
Assemblies are held regularly each term. Information will be sent to you via SMS to ensure that parents and the community are able to attend.
The Senior High School P&C School Canteen prepares lunches and refreshments for students and staff. The canteen opens before school and at recess and lunch. The canteen provides tasty and nutritious meals and is a major source of fundraising for the school. The canteen is run as a service to the school community. It is open all week. If you would like to volunteer, please phone the canteen manager on 9795 8620. Your assistance is greatly appreciated.
