Foundation Enrolment - Starting School

Enrolment for Foundation students commences from Term 2 (April 24 2023).

A tour of the school can be organised at any time by contacting the school office for all prospective Foundation students and their parents. A tour offers a great opportunity to see the School in action, view the school buildings and facilities and hear information about the School. 

Further orientation activities are organised for later in the year. These orientation activities are especially designed to assist your child's transition from Kindergarten to Foundation.


The Department of Education has a statewide Foundation (Prep) enrolment timeline.

The timeline advises families when and how to enrol their child into Foundation (Prep) at a Victorian government primary school, including Inverleigh Primary School.

You can find information and resources about the enrolment timeline at: Enrolling in Foundation (Prep).
