Is Auburn Primary School zoned?

Your child has the right to attend their designated neighbourhood school. All Victorian Government schools in Metropolitan Melbourne, and some regional areas, including Auburn Primary School, have a boundary which is referred to as a zone.  This zone can change slightly year to year, due to the needs of a suburb, including the creation of new schools. You can check which primary and secondary school you are zoned to by going to https://www.findmyschool.vic.gov.au.

You can find further information about school zones at https://www.education.vic.gov.au/parents/going-to-school/Pages/zones-restrictions.aspx

Does Auburn Primary School accept out of school zone enrolments?

If capacity exists, YES we accept out of zone enrolments.  Capacity varies year to year.  If you want to apply as an out of school zone applicant, we encourage you to do this as soon as possible.  Generally an assessment of our capacity occurs in September/October each year.
Consideration of out of zone enrolments is at the discretion of the Principal who under the Education and Training Reform Act 2006 will identify whether there is sufficient accommodation for the child at that school at the time.

When do I need to enrol my child?
