I went to the school today and enquired. They told me that as prep will be compulsory in 2016 I won't be able to keep him back. Geez this qld does my head in. So now I have to send my boy to kindy next year to get him ready for prep when I thought I had another year with him at home with me!!

Oh gosh it's so confusing. They said you can delay start now but in 2 years time you won't be able to any more. I have a may boy. Maybe I best speak to the education department. I thought every school had a catchment plan and you could apply out of catchment but it depended on their numbers. It was Pallara state school that I spoke with today. I wanted to send him there instead of browns plains as we look like we will be moving to forestdale.. Thanks for all your advice

They are called `enrollment management plans' and not all schools have them. They generally introduce them if the school is above capacity for their resources.
Our local school has not had an enrollment management plan until this year as for the first time they had 3 prep classes, from next year they will only accept students from the catchment zone or siblings of students already enrolled and cap the numbers at 2 prep classes. Any school with an EMP you can apply as an out of area and they may have places to offer or may not.
I'm sorry you had that experience LillyPily! I would contact EQ to enquire if making prep compulsory changes things as my understanding was the policy was based on the legislation that you have to have your child enrolled in school by age 6.

But rather then more schools introducing plans I believe a lot of schools in QLD are removing previous enrolment plans as of next year as Year 7 moves to high school so that has taken pressure off enrolment numbers.
