Enrolment at Werribee Primary School
Werribee Primary School has strict enrolment procedures in place in response to our growing student population and our ability to accommodate students on a limited site.
Students are enrolled in the following priority order:
- Students for whom the school is the designated neighbourhood school.
- Students with a sibling at the same permanent address who are attending the school at the same time
Our school zone is available on findmyschool.vic.gov.au.
Findmyschool 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 School Placement Policy 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.
To assist Werribee Primary School in assessing your child’s eligibility for enrolment, please include in your enrolment application original or certified copies of:
Rental agreements or unconditional contracts of sale
A copy of two of the following:
electoral enrolment confirmation

Documents should show the same address and parent’s/carer’s name as recorded on the school enrolment application form.
Optional: 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.
When assessing enrolment applications, Werribee Primary School may make the following enquiries to verify the information provided about a student’s permanent residence:
Checking the electoral roll at an Australian Electoral Commission office or the Victorian Electoral Commission head office
Checking with a real estate agent
Checking whether the contact landline phone number provided is registered to the residence provided on the enrolment form
For a rental property which is a studio apartment or a one bedroom unit, checking whether there are any regulations/codes limiting the occupancy of these apartments to one person per apartment.
Note: If, after reasonable enquiries, the Principal does not accept that the address provided on the enrolment application form is the genuine permanent residence of the student, the enrolment application may not be successful.
