Siena Catholic Primary School is administered by Brisbane Catholic Education and their

“Catholic schools in the Archdiocese give priority in enrolment to students who are baptised Catholics.
Schools may also enrol students from other faith traditions whose families demonstrate that they share in the expressed values of the school.
In such instances schools embrace church teachings regarding respect for the faith journey of individuals within the religious dimension of school life.
The process of enrolment is to be guided by principles of justice and equity that support Catholic ethos and vision.”
An enrolment policy exists to assist in developing expectations at the point of inquiry and entry. Guiding principles are set to assist the Principal with demands placed on places available in the school. Brisbane Catholic Education policies, regulations and guidelines are followed at a school level.
