general enrolment

Eligible students may enrol at any time during the school year.

The policy of the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development states:

“School programs should be provided by the Department of Education for students with intellectual disabilities within the same range as for other students, namely, approximately 5 to 18 years”.

If your child will be five years old by 30 April of the year of school entry they are eligible to start school

The decision to enrol at Sale Specialist School is ultimately a family choice. Enrolment may be on a fulltime basis or part time, with enrolment shared between the Specialist School and a mainstream school. Enrolment of less than two days per week is strongly discouraged. 

For information specifically about Prep Enrolment go to our Prep Enrolment Page.

Please read our Enrolment Policy.

Eligibilty for Enrolment

A child may only attend Sale Specialist School if they are deemed eligible and receive funding through the Program for Students with Disabilities (PSD) under the criteria of intellectual disability.

Before entering Sale Specialist School, students will need to be assessed by a qualified educational psychologist to determine eligibility and then qualify for funding through the Program for Students with Disabilities under the criteria of Intellectual Disability. 

We work with families to complete this process and are happy to attend case meetings etc. prior to your child’s enrolment in order to facilitate a smooth transition to school .

For more information about the Program for Children with disabiliites click on the link to the Department of Education & Early Childhood Development website or contact the school for further information on 03 5244 5644 or email us at sale.district.ss@edumail.vic.gov.au


Eligible students may enrol at any time during the school year. Students will participate in a transition program to ensure student needs are identified and placement is appropriate. 

Please contact the school for further information about transition on 03 5244 5644 or email sale.district.ss@edumail.vic.gov.au

Transport Assistance

Students who reside within the school’s Designated Transport Area (DTA) may be eligible for transport assistance.
Download the Transport Assistance to Specialist Schools Handbook for information and guidelines about eligibility.


A school entry immunisation certificate must be presented at the school office before children start school.  This is a legal requirement on enrolment to primary school in Victoria. This process assists health authorities in the event of a vaccine preventable disease occurrence in school.  An unvaccinated child may be excluded from school for a period of time.  School entry immunisation certificates can be obtained from:
The Australian Childhood Immunisation Register (ACIR) on 1800653809

For more information about the Immunisation Register go the the Australian Children Immunisation Register Website.
