Important documents to submit During gde online application 2025
Parents and guardians must upload or submit certified copies of the following documents within 7 days of applying:
- Parent and child ID or passport
- Refugee Permit
- Asylum Seeker Permit
- Permanent Residence Permit
- Study Permit
- South African birth certificate
- Proof of home address
- Proof of work address
- Latest school report and clinic card/immunisation report (Grade 1 only)
To eliminate the risk of overlooking an applicant with uploaded documents by a school, during and up to 7 days after the end of the application period, schools will receive an auto alert each time new documents are uploaded. The system will highlight all uploaded documents for verification.
“In order to hold schools accountable for verification of all received documents, the system will prompt schools to answer the question of whether an applicant submitted documents or not.
“If verified, the system will prompt the school to verify and update the document status. If not verified, the system will create an alert on the parent’s profile and an SMS will be sent to the parent to submit or upload documents,” the department had said previously.
As part of the system enhancement process, applicants will be afforded the opportunity to make informed choices regarding languages offered when applying to a school.
Language of learning and teaching, home languages, and additional languages offered by each school will be visible on the system to applicants during the application period.
“All applicants will be granted an opportunity to apply to a school of their choice, according to the selected application option. This is an improvement as previous complaints we received stated that schools were not available for certain application options and, as such, all schools will remain open for applications for all during the application period,” the GDE said.
For all applicants to submit completed applications, electronic messages will be sent via SMS reminding parents and guardians to complete their application, and the same notifications will be created on the parent’s profile on the system.

To ensure access for applicants who are unable to apply from the comfort of their homes and or offices, the department has identified decentralised walk-in centres in different areas where applicants will be safely assisted.

This information will be made available to the public via schools, districts, the GDE website and social media platforms.
“Parents and guardians who experience challenges during the application period are encouraged to visit our district offices and decentralised walk-in centres or call the GDE’s contact centre 0800 000 789.”
