Foundation Enrolment


Transition to School: Information Pack

The Department of Education has provided the 2020 Primary School Transition Parent Information Pack which details how to enrol your child at Dorset Primary School and the enrolment guidelines that govern all primary schools in the wider school region

How to Enrol:

To enrol at Dorset Primary School, there are a few options:

  • Use to see if you are in our catchment zone. While Dorset PS is not restricted to zone intake, the Victorian Department of Education encourages families to consider all local schools in their area.
  • Call the Front Office on 9725 5038 or email the Front Office to book a time to tour the school and meet our staff and students
  • Download your enrolment form and return to the school by email or in person

When completing your enrolment, you may be asked to provide details about:

  • Evidence of your child’s date of birth
  • Names and addresses of the child and parents and/or carers
  • Parents’/carers’ telephone numbers
  • Names and emergency contacts and their basic contact details
  • Doctor’s and dentist’s names and telephone numbers
  • Immunisation certificate/s
  • Health and welfare information about your child (for example, does your child have asthma, allergies etc)
  • Information about the language(s) your child speaks and hears (to help the school support and build on your child’s knowledge)

The Foundation teachers for your child’s Foundation year will conduct one-on-one parent-teacher interviews before the end of the year so that important information about your child can be used to best support their beginning of life at school.


You are welcome to contact our Front Office for any queries- we look forward to hearing from you!
