DET Enrolling in a school

Enrolment Guidance
Policy Framework

The 2006 Education and Training Reform Act (ETRA) underpins the Department of Education and Training (DET) enrolment policy which can be found at: https://www2.education.vic.gov.au/pal/enrolment/policy

The policy states that all eligible children and young people have the right to be admitted to their designated neighbourhood government school.

A student’s designated neighbourhood school is generally the school that is nearest the student’s permanent address as determined by the school zone. The website https://www.findmyschool.vic.gov.au provides guidance on which school zone a student’s permanent residence is located within.

School boundaries often move to accommodate demographic changes and the establishment of new neighbouring schools. As is the case with any new school the enrolment boundaries for it and neighbouring schools must be adjusted to reflect the closest school.

The potential future demand for enrolment places from within the local community indicates that Chaffey Secondary College must manage enrolments carefully and in accordance with the Priority Placement Order in the Enrolment Policy.

A student’s permanent place of address determines eligibility for enrolment at Chaffey Secondary College.

    Year 6 to 7 Transition for Year 6 Government School Students

Year 6 to 7 transition is managed through the state-wide Year 6 to 7 Transition Program. This program has a number of processes and key dates that must be adhered to.

Our local government primary schools will provide Year 6 students with information about transition and enrolment in government secondary schools.

All Year 7 enrolments will be considered against the priority order of placement criteria.

    Year 6 to 7 Transition for Year 6 Catholic and Independent School Students

Parents with students at Catholic or Independent primary schools may download the Non-Government Parent Transition Pack and follow the instructions for non-government students. The same enrolment conditions regarding
students attending their designated neighbourhood schools apply.

    Years 8-10 Enrolments

Students who reside in the Chaffey Secondary College designated neighbourhood zone have the right to enrol at Epping Secondary College. To locate your designated neighbourhood government school, please visit the Find My School website at https://www.findmyschool.vic.gov.au

Please visit our website for further information about Year 8-10 enrolment and transfers between school. Students transferring from other secondary schools will be considered in line with the priority order of placement and may be required to commence at the start of a semester when not within our designated neighbourhood zone.

    Sibling Claim Enrolments that are Outside the Designated Neighbourhood Area

In the event that a Year 6 student has a sibling, who will be attending Chaffey Secondary College in 2022 and whose residential address is located outside the designated neighbourhood, then the Year 6 student can apply for enrolment.
