Enrolment information pack for parents and carers will be available from Monday 15 April 2024.
To start primary school your child will need to turn 5 years old by 30 April in the year that they start school.
Your child must be at school in the year that they turn 6 years of age. This is the compulsory school starting age.
The first year of primary school is called Foundation or Prep. Read more about when and how to enrol your child in the first year of primary school at enrolling in Foundation (Prep).
If you need to enrol at a different time or year level, contact the primary school.
Your child has a right to enrol at their local school. Your child’s local school is determined on the basis of their permanent residential address. Visit Find my School to locate your child’s local school. The enrolling in a school page can also help you to confirm your child’s address for enrolment.
If you are seeking to apply to enrol your child in a school that is not their local school, you should read about school zones and how they work and how applications are prioritised using the Department of Education’s Placement Policy found on the enrolling in a school page.
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).
