About our enrolment procedure

Eligibility

Please note that we are restricted by school zones (as set by the Department of Education), and required to verify addresses of all applicants on the Department’s Find My School website. We also require proof of address (such as a lease agreement, utility bill – something showing a valid and current name and address).

Students who reside within the Wales Street Primary School zone or who already have a sibling attending the school are automatically entitled to a placement at Wales Street. Consideration may also be given to families who are not in the zone based on curriculum grounds.

If the address provided is outside the Wales Street zone, families must provide the curriculum grounds on which they wish to attend Wales Street (as opposed to attending the school your children are zoned for).

Timing and availability

We take general enrolments all year round. If a child lives within our zone, there is no cut-off date, and we must take that child at any time during the school year.

If a child lives outside our zone but have curriculum grounds as to why they have chosen Wales Street, acceptance of enrolment would depend on spaces available. If all classes in the relevant year level are filled, we are not obligated to accept additional enrolments. (Note that this differs from families living within the school zone, for whom we are obliged to accept the enrolment regardless of class sizes.)

If a family is moving into the school zone and wishes to begin at Wales Street in the following year, we strongly encourage them to submit completed enrolment forms by October, as this is when class placements are organised and teachers allocated.
