School Enrolments

Our school zone 

Our school zone is available on findmyschool.vic.gov.au which hosts the most up-to-date information on school zones in Victoria. 

Students residing within our school zone are guaranteed a place at our school, which is determined on the basis of the permanent residential address of the student. All other applications will be considered subject to available space, and prioritised according to:

  1. Students with a sibling at the same permanent address who are attending the school at the same time
  2. All other students in order of closeness of their home to the school.

Our school manages enrolments using the Placement Policy to ensure that students have access to their designated neighbourhood school and may enrol at another school if there are available places. 

For more information, you can: 

  • · visit School zones for answers to frequently asked questions
  • · call the Victorian School Building Authority (VSBA) on 1800 896 950

Prep enrolments 

The Department of Education has a statewide Foundation (Prep) enrolment timeline. The timeline advises families when and how to enrol their child into Foundation (Prep) at a Victorian government primary school, including Saltwater P-9 College. 

You can find information and resources about the enrolment timeline and procedures at: Enrolling in Foundation (Prep)

Year 1-6 Enrolments 

While there is no statewide timeline for enrolling in years 1 through 6, we recommend you do this as soon as possible to ensure adequate time to source uniforms, stationery and attend any scheduled transition days that are arranged. 

Please complete and submit the enrolment form. 

Year 7 Enrolments 

If your child is seeking a place in Year 7 at Saltwater P-9 College next year, and they currently attend a government primary school you will need to download the “Placement Information Pack for Government School Parents and Carers’” which will be available in Term 2, 2023.  This may also be available from your child’s government primary school.  The application form needs to be returned to your child’s primary school and all communications about the placement must be with the Year 6 Coordinator or Transition Coordinator at your child’s primary school until the placement is confirmed. 

If your child currently is attending a non-government primary school you will need to download the “Placement Information Pack” when it is available in Term 2.  This will need to be returned to Saltwater P-9 College by the due date (to be advised). 

More information for parents and carers can be found on the Department’s website “Moving from primary to secondary school”
