Samford State School enrolment is now based on an Enrolment Management Plan.
This plan defines the enrolment boundary and details the process for consideration of "out of catchment" students. Due to our recent growth this has a significant impact on the available space across the school therefore the enrolment management plan comes into place. Please refer to our Catchment area page for more details.

If children are transferring from another State School in Queensland, they are required to bring with them a 'Transfer Form' from the previous school. It is requested that they also bring the most recent Report Card and samples of work such as daily workbooks, which the class teacher will return following perusal.
Evidence of date of birth and Australian residency is required for all enrolments.
Special Needs Students: Children with physical, visual, hearing or intellectual impairments or autism may also apply for admission. Parents of these children are required to discuss the special needs with the Principal at the time of application and present medical and/or other applicable reports. If necessary, enrolment will be deferred until a full assessment of the child’s needs is carried out. Parents are always involved in this process.
Students enrolling from other Queensland State Schools require original official transfer. Students enrolling from Queensland Non-State Schools or Students from other Australian States and Territories require documentation from previous school including recent report. Enrolling students from outside Australia require passport with appropriate visas.
