About our enrolment procedure

Eligibility

Our school zone

Our school zone is available on findmyschool.vic.gov.au which hosts the most up-to-date information about Victorian school zones.

Students residing in this zone are guaranteed a place at our school, which is determined on the basis of your permanent residential address.

The Department provides guidance through the Placement Policy to ensure that students have access to their designated neighbourhood school and the freedom to choose other schools, subject to facility limitations.

You can find more information and answers to frequently asked questions on the Department’s website under School zones.  

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.

Additional information for Foundation children

Enrolling a child in Foundation? Generally, we begin taking expressions of interest and booking school tours from March in the year before your child is due to start at Wales Street.
