Enrolment Policy

The Department of Education and Training (DET) provides guidance through the Placement Policy to ensure that all students have access to their designated neighbourhood school regardless of capacity and the freedom to apply to enrol for a place at a school that is not their designated neighbourhood school if there are available places.

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

Our school manages enrolments using the DET’s Placement Policy.

Students residing within our school zone are guaranteed a place at our school, which is based on their permanent residential address.

Applications received from students who reside outside of the school zone will be assessed based on the following priority order of placement:

1. Students with a sibling at the same permanent address who are attending the school at the same time.

2. All other students in order of closeness of their permanent residential address to the school.

Students can no longer be prioritised for enrolment based on curriculum grounds.

In exceptional circumstances, a student may be enrolled based on compassionate grounds. This is an overarching consideration and does not form part of the priority order of placement.

Families must be able to clearly demonstrate the exceptional circumstances which they believe make an enrolment at the designated neighbourhood school unsuitable for their child or children.

We are permitted to assess and make a determination for exceptional circumstances applications on a case-by-case basis. Your child’s primary school should assist with this application.
