ENROLMENTS AND TRANSITION
Welcome to Delacombe Primary School
Discover what we already know about Delacombe Primary School, 'It's A Great Place To Grow'. To see why you should enrol your family at Delacombe Primary School take a guided tour and see what makes our school unique.
Our school zone
Our school zone is available on findmyschool.vic.gov.au. Findmyschool.vic.gov.au hosts the most up-to-date information about Victorian school zones for 2020 onwards.
Students residing in this zone are guaranteed a place at our school, which is determined on the basis of your permanent residential address.
The Department provides guidance through the Enrolment Management Plan to ensure that students have access to their designated neighbourhood school and the freedom to choose other schools, subject to facility limitations.
You can find more information and answers to frequently asked questions on the Department’s website under School zones.
Enrolments should be completed using the online form set above.
Online enrolment form
Along with this completed enrolment form please provide the following documentation as listed below:
Current Immunisation Statement. This is available at the Department of Human Services or call 1800653 809.
Medical Action Plan (if applicable) for Asthma/Anaphylaxis.
For Overseas students, a current visa.
To assist Delacombe Primary School in assessing your child’s eligibility for enrolment, please also include original or certified copies of:
1. Rental agreements or unconditional contracts of sale plus
2. A copy of two of the following:
electoral enrolment confirmation
council rates notices
other official documentation that demonstrates permanent residency at that address such as a driver’s license or health care card.
Documents should show the same address and parent’s/carer’s name as recorded on the school enrolment application form.
On request, you may also be required to complete a statutory declaration confirming the student is living in the address provided in the enrolment application and that the arrangement is genuine and intended to be permanent.
Note: Enrolment applications may not be successful if the requested documentation is not provided.
Changes to address after an enrolment offer is made
Subject to any changes to Department enrolment policy, if, after a placement offer is made to the student, the student’s permanent residence changes or it comes to light that the address provided on the application form was not the genuine permanent residence for the student, a school may only withdraw a placement offer in the following circumstances:
The placement offer made to the student expressly states that the offer may be withdrawn prior to the first day of attendance if the student’s permanent place of residence changes or the school becomes aware that the address provided on the application form was not the genuine permanent residence for the student; and the new address is not within the designated neighbourhood area for the school.
Please finalise enrolments as soon as possible so we can schedule the Delacombe Primary Schools’ Transition and EYA (Early Years Assessment).
Please see our newsletter or contact the school about dates for Foundation Transition.
