Education tax refund has been replaced no longer any need to keep receipts! In June a payment of $410 will be paid to you as the first payment!

My sons 5 and due to start primary school in 6 weeks and I am not sure if I'm eligible for it as he's enrolled in school just won't be starting for 6 weeks.

The Education Tax Refund was the one you claimed with the ATO & receipts only it no longer exists now- the new budget repeals it. Now you get $420 a year for primary school kids $84o for high school kids no receipts required and it will be paid in 2 instalments- one in January one in July. I expect it will be fairly similar to the old rules whereby you need to be getting FTB part A to be eligible.
So no you can't claim anything on your tax return if you're not eligible for the new Schoolkids money.
