Kingsville Primary School Enrolment Process and Procedures

All Victorian Government Primary and Secondary Schools have an enrolment zone. Government expectations are (if children are being schooled in the government system) that they attend their designated government school.

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 for 2021 onwards.
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 Departments website under School Zones.

 

Stage 1 – Collecting your enrolment pack

 

Packs will be available after the Queen’s Birthday long weekend in June.

Prospective Parents will need to provide the office with a photo identification document (drivers licence) and a utilities statement that shows your primary residence location. This residential address would indicate that Kingsville is your closest neighbourhood school.

 

Collect the enrolment pack from the office and complete and collect the enrolment documents outlined on the checklist being:

  • enrolment form
  • acceptable use agreement for ITC form
  • permission to use student image form
  • immunization certificate from Medicare
  • proof of birth - birth certificate (child must be at least 5 years of age by the 30th April of the year admission is sought)
  • home, work, and mobile numbers of parents/guardians
  • details of medical or other conditions which may require the child to have special consideration
  • proof of Australian residency or appropriate visa that would allow for enrolment (non-fee paying) in an Australian government school if born outside of Australia details of and as appropriate
  • copies of any legal documents relating to custody or parent access regarding child/children
  • emergency contact numbers – at least 2 (not parents)

 

Stage 2: Making an enrolment appointment

 

Ring the school and make an appointment to enrol your child. Please note: all new families enrolling at Kingsville must make this appointment. Parents who already have a child at KPS and will be enrolling a sibling for 2022 may wish to make an appointment if there is relevant and important information to be discussed during the enrolment process for the new enrolment.

 

Stage 3: Enrolling your child at Kingsville Primary School

 

Begins during Term 3.

Attend an enrolment meeting with a member of the leadership of the school (either the Principal, an Assistant Principal or a Leading Teacher). At your appointment you should bring all your paperwork completed to your best ability. Having your child at the enrolment meeting is required. This is an important rite of passage and they should participate in the process.
