GDE Applications 2021

GDE admission information will be updated as soon as the Gauteng Department of Education releases application  information.

Hints for Parents for online applications

  • Please note that you may only register once. Your also profile cannot be reopened for editing. This makes it very important that that ALL details be entered into the system correctly.

  • To process your application effectively, please ensure you complete ALL fields. Omissions and incorrect information lead to delays.

  • ALL fields on ALL written and electronic forms need to be filled out unless otherwise stated.

  • Please ensure you follow the instructions relevant to EACH child you are applying for/enrolling.

  • Edenglen Primary cannot be held responsible for instructions from either the GDE (Gauteng Department of Education) or the school not followed regarding the applications or re-enrolment process.

Admission criteria

Admission to Edenglen Primary is subject to the following criteria:

 

  • English is the medium of instruction.

  • The child must be within the age limits for the grade.

  • Proof of immunisation, original ID documents, and a full Unabridged Birth Certificate must be produced.

  • Children from our natural feeder area will have preference; thereafter, parents who work in the area.

  • Learners outside the feeder area will only be admitted should there be space available.

  • Edenglen Primary is a fee-paying school; therefore parents are expected to pay school fees and are reminded that School Fees are a statutory debt.

  • Applicants should be able to demonstrate a record of responsible fee payment, at their current schools.

  • Parents will be required to ensure that their children respect the rights and dignity of others.

Grade 1 admissions

Please note, the Grade 1 registration process is run by the Gauteng Department of Education (GDE) and all applicants are required to follow the GDE’s due process.  

 

We strongly urge any parent applying for Grade 1 in 2019 to adhere closely to all dates and instructions with care, as failure to do so can adversely influence placements. Because the GDE works on a first come, first served basis, this means even if you already have an older child at Edenglen Primary, we cannot guarantee placement in Grade 1.  

 

We can only assist you with the application and endeavour to keep you updated with any information from the GDE.

ALL applications for Grade 1 MUST be done ONLINE at https://www.gdeadmissions.gov.za/

Once you have registered online, you will be issued a WAITING LIST NUMBER. This number must be included on your application form. No applications will be accepted without this number.

The application form will also include a list of documents that will need to be attached to your full application. Application forms will be available for collection from the school from date. Applications may be returned to the school from date. Forms will NOT be accepted before this date.

On submission of a completed application form, parents will receive an allocated waiting list number from the relevant admissions register. Waiting list A is reserved for applicants residing within the school’s zone. Waiting list B is for people outside of the area and will only be considered if space is available once all placements from Waiting list A have been finalised. 

Because Waiting list B space cannot be guaranteed, parents on Waiting list B are advised to apply at the school that is in their feeder area.

Applicants are accepted in chronological order, according to the date and time when they applied, and so long as they meet the prescribed criteria (i.e., reside in the area, work in area, a sibling already enrolled in the school). However, having a sibling in the school does not guarantee placement at the school.

APPLICATION FORMS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED AND PROCESSED IF THE REQUIRED DOCUMENTATION IS NOT ATTACHED

On submission of a completed application form, parents will receive an allocated waiting list number from the relevant admissions register. Waiting list A is reserved for applicants residing within the school’s zone.
