About our enrolment procedure

Eligibility

 To determine if you are in the Wales Street Primary School zone please visit the findmyschool.vic.gov.au website. Families residing in the zone or already have a sibling attending the school are guaranteed a place. Evidence of residence is required (eg. Council rates notice, lease agreement, utility bill, drivers licence, health care card).

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.  

Consideration may be given to families who are residing outside the school zone based on curriculum grounds, and depend on places available. 

 

Timing and availability

Foundation enrolments: Due by 30 July the year prior to school commencement.

Year 1-6 enrolments: The Principal and/or Assistant Principal will contact the previous school of all students seeking to transfer from another school. Families moving into the school zone late in the year wishing to gain a placement in the following year are strongly encouraged to submit enrolment forms by October, as this is when class placements are organised and teachers allocated.

Consideration may be given to families who are residing outside the school zone based on curriculum grounds, and depend on places available. 

Foundation Orientation Program

The Foundation Orientation Program runs during October and November each year. Information will be posted to all families who have received confirmation of enrolment. Parent Information Sessions are also conducted during this time.
