School tours occur in Term 2 each year and can be booked via our school website. On completion of a school tour you are welcome to collect an enrolment form or alternatively drop into our school office at any time to collect. Please be aware that you will be required to show proof of residence for in zone and out of zone applications.  (Detailed information will be the enrolment form for accepted documentation). You will also be required to provide a copy of your child’s immunisation history and birth certificate as a part of the enrolment process.

Enrolment Process

Thank you for considering Woodlands Primary School for your child to attend. 

At Woodlands we currently have an Enrolment Boundary around the school within which all enrolments will be accepted.

Our enrolment process is as follows:

1) If you are in our school zone and have supplied the correct documentation you can be assured your child has a place at Woodlands Primary School. (This can be checked by heading to https://www.findmyschool.vic.gov.au and typing in your address.

2) If you already have a sibling attending, you can be assured your child has a place at Woodlands Primary School.

3) For prospective Foundation students commencing the following year; if you are out of our zone and submit an enrolment, you will be informed by email if your child has a place or does not have a place, by mid-September. Please do not call or email the school any earlier to find out if you have been accepted as our process will not be finalised. 

If you receive a placement from another school prior to our process being finalised, it is your decision to either accept that placement (please notify us if you do) or wait and see if you were successful in gaining a place here a Woodlands. We cannot guide you in your decision making.

The availability of out of zone enrolments all depends on student numbers. The number of students leaving and the number of in zone and sibling enrolments.  If there are numbers available for out of zone students, this is selected by closest to the school not to the boundary.

Foundation Transition

Our extensive transition program commences in Term 4 and transition days are held during late October, November and early December. Once your enrolment at Woodlands is confirmed, you will be notified of the transition days via our Compass portal.

At these transition sessions, the students will get the chance to spend time with all of Foundation teachers and Specialist staff. Parents will also be invited to attend the final session, to learn about life as a school parent.
