Enrolment: Step 3 (Enrolment Process and Forms)

Starting Primary School: The Enrolment Process

The first step to enrolling your child at Footscray West Primary School is to complete a Student Enrolment Application Form, which is available from the school office. 


All new enrolment forms need to be lodged at the school before the 28th July, 2023.


If you are a separated family, one parent will need complete the Student Enrolment Form and the other parent will need to complete the Alternative Family Student Enrolment Form. Please contact the school office for further details.


When submitting the Student Enrolment Form, also attach:

  • Your child’s Birth Certificate
  • Your child’s Immunisation Certificate/Record
  • Proof of residence – utility bill, driver’s licence, rental agreement, etc. (for new families to the school.)

Please note:

To commence primary school, children must be five years old by 30th April in the year they start school.


At Footscray West Primary School, we accept enrolments for the following year from Term 2 onward. We do not manage a wait list – so we do not accept enrolments beyond the next school year.

If you have enrolment questions, please contact the school office.

Upon receipt of your enrolment, an appointment may be scheduled for you and your child/ren to meet with the Principal or Assistant Principal to further discuss your application.


Enrolment Submitted – What’s Next?

Families of kindergarten children are encouraged to submit their enrolment form for the coming year by end of June. At Footscray West Primary School, we email our placement offers later in Term 3 and our transition program is held in November.
