Eligibility to Enrol in a Victorian Government School

To be eligible to enrol in a Victorian government school, your child must be at least five years of age by the 30th April in the year they commence their schooling.

Only Australian citizens and international students with specific visa sub classes are eligible for Government funded positions.

See our school zone online

The Department of Education has released a website that will tell you which local school you are zoned to. Findmyschool.vic.gov.au launched this year and shows every school zone across the state. The new website highlights the choice of public schools available to the Victorian community.

 

What to include when returning your child's Enrolment Form:

If you are transitioning from another school


Transferring from one primary school to another is a big step for most children. They are leaving behind the security of the familiar surroundings of their current primary school and entering a whole new environment.

When a student transfers from one government primary school to another within Victoria, the outgoing school sends the new school an electronic data transfer. The transfer includes information about the student – their name, address, emergency contact details, any medical conditions and their academic records.

Whether your child is changing schools within Victoria, from another state or from overseas, it is useful for the new primary school to see school reports and examples of your child’s work from their previous school. This will assist the new primary school to do all they can to make the transition as smooth as possible for your child.

If you are transitioning from another Victorian Government School you will not need to fill out an enrolment form.
How you can help during the transition

As a parent, you can help your child’s transition into a new school by:

  • involving your child as much as possible when you are choosing the new school
  • asking them how they feel about the new school
  • showing them around the school before their first day
  • meeting their new teacher/s.
  • giving the new school past reports and examples of work from your child’s previous school
  • preparing them for school by talking about their first day
  • keeping in contact with important friends from their previous school
  • talking to them about the new school they will be attending
  • finding opportunities to meet parents and children from the new school.

As always, we are more than happy to answer any questions or provide any further information should you require it. We look forward to sharing this exciting journey with you and your child.
