Enrolment


Our school provides opportunities for enrolment at any stage of the year. We conduct school tours and meet with all prospective families.

 

In term 4 each year, we have a comprehensive transition program for kinder- aged children to spend time at school getting to know their future school. If you are a new family to our neighbourhood, a meeting and tour can be arranged at a suitable time.

 

If you have any queries or questions about enrolling at Footscray North Primary School send us an email, phone our office on 9317 9047 or call in any school day, between 8:30 am and 4:00 pm

 

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

Students residing within our school zone are guaranteed a place at our school, which is determined on the basis of your permanent residential address.

 

Our school manages enrolments using the Placement Policy to ensure that students have access to their designated neighbourhood school and may enrol at another school, if there are available places.
