Schools in the Yarraville area all follow the Victorian government expectations with regard to enrolment of students being that:


  • in Victoria all school aged children have a designated neighbourhood government school
  • some schools will have a designated neighbourhood school boundary
  • the deemed neighbourhood school is defined as the nearest school to the student’s permanent address
  • in metropolitan areas this is the nearest school in a straight line from the student’s permanent residence
  • Government expectations are (if children are being schooled in the Government system) that they attend this neighbourhood school
  • each school has a government determined student capacity number
  • when that capacity number is reached enforcement of a neighbourhood boundary policy may be applied for and approved by a Regional Director
  • this neighbourhood boundary is not, always permanent and may be in existence or not depending upon the current enrolment and the government determined enrolment capacity of the school
  • in the past this may have been referred to as zoning


Kingsville Primary School context

  • currently KPS does not have an enforced neighbourhood boundary however, we are moving closer to our determined capacity
  • procedures, policies and actions at every school manage enrolments and, must ensure that children who live in the school neighbourhood area have access to a  place at their neighbourhood school  at any time of the year that a request is made
  • schools such as Kingsville that currently do not have an enforced neighbourhood boundary, will consider enrolment requests from parents outside of their designated neighbourhood area
  • there is a set school process for this which includes providing  the opportunity to fill in an expression of interest form – these forms are available upon request from the main office
  • moving closer to determined capacity however, means offering such places at KPS will be increasingly less – and any offers of places for families living outside of the neighbourhood area cannot be made until well into semester two
