Enrolment


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


Details of the KPS school zone are available on, findmyschool.vic.gov.au which provides the most up to date information about Victorian Government school zones.


Students residing in a school zone are guaranteed a place at that school. This right is verified at the school level on the basis of evidence of residential address.

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

More information and answers to frequently asked questions can be on the Department’s website.

 

Step 1: Collecting your enrolment pack

 

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

To gain a pack prospective parents would need to provide photo identification (e.g. drivers licence) and a utilities statement that shows primary residence location. This residential address would need to indicate that Kingsville is the closest neighbourhood school. Following collection of the enrolment pack documentation should be completed as 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
  • copies of any legal documents relating to custody, parenting arrangements or access regarding child/children
  • emergency contact numbers – at least 2 (not parents)

Step 2: Making an enrolment appointment

 

The next step is to make an enrolment meeting appointment. To do this please ring the school on 9314 5869.

 

Please note: all new families enrolling at Kingsville must make an appointment. Parents who already have a child at KPS and will be enrolling a sibling for 2022 are most welcome to schedule a meeting and should do so if there is any important information to be discussed regarding the new family member being enrolled.

 

Stage 3: Enrolling your child at Kingsville Primary School

 

The enrolment meetings take place during term 3 and are carried out by a member of the school leadership team. Parents need to bring with them all paperwork completed (as possible). There will however be opportunity at the meeting to clarify and complete documents.

 

The child who is being enrolled is required to attend the enrolment meeting. This is an important rite of passage and they expected to participate in the process.

 

 

Parents seeking an enrolment– but KPS is not their closest neighbourhood school

 

Step 1: collect from the office an ‘expression of interest’ form and complete

 

Step 2: return the completed ‘expression of interest’ form to the office

Please note: a decision on your application will be made during Term 4 and any offers possible will be made via email notification. There is no need to call on the progress of an application.
