Welcome to Belmont Primary School. We always feel honoured when parents consider our school for the education of their child(ren). We aim to make the enrolment process as smooth as possible and are happy to answer any questions you may have along the way. Some early steps to take are to chase up copies of your child’s birth certificate and immunisation records. These documents will be required on enrolment.
Your child can start Prep at the beginning of the school year if he or she turns five on or before 30th April in that year. By law, all children must be enrolled in school by their sixth birthday. When to start your child at school is an individual decision. You may want to discuss this with us or with your child’s preschool teacher and health care professionals if you are unsure about when is the best year for your child to begin school.
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 onward.
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.
