Student Enrolments

Coatesville Primary School has an enrolment zone.  This is explained in the following statement from the Department of Education:

In most instances, you will be able to enrol your child into the government primary school nearest to where you live.

However, some primary schools need to restrict their enrolments – and the number of students they can take – to a particular area or zone around the actual school. This means that certain schools can only take students from a specific neighbourhood area. Where your permanent residential address is will determine whether your child is eligible to enrol in that school.

These enrolment restrictions are sometimes referred to as residential boundaries, school zones, enrolment ceilings or enrolment caps.



Our school zone is available on 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.

School tours are conducted from May to June. The Principal, Michael Jones will take parents proudly through our vibrant learning environment.
