Enrolling at KCPS
Kororoit Creek Primary has a designated zone around the school which is used to determine which families have automatic admission into the school. Families which have automatic admission are closer to Kororoit Creek Primary School than any other State School according to the formula used by the Department of Education. This zone is enforced when enrolments indicate that the school can only accommodate families within the zone.
Use the following link to search for your local government school. This is the official and most up to date school zones map.
Enrolments will be accepted from the start of term 2 2020. Completed enrolment forms can be dropped off at the school office with the following information.
- A full birth certificate for your child or, if not born in Australia, a Passport and valid entry Visa or a Citizenship Certificate (children must turn 5 by 30th April in the year they start school)
- Statement of immunisation (this can be obtained through Medicare)
Families must be residing within the neighbourhood boundary and will need to provide:
Current council rates notices along with two current utility notices
A copy of the following (current):
· Rental agreements with RTBA bond receipt

Documents should show the same address and parent’s/carer’s name as recorded on the school enrolment application form.
Please note that the Melbourne School Zones website is not Department of Education authorised and the neighbourhood boundary displayed for our school is not accurate.
Please include all documentation as outlined above.
Kororoit Creek Primary School has a uniform policy, stating that the wearing of school uniform is compulsory. The uniform must be worn correctly without fashion accessories or enhancements (including leggings under dresses) every day. Please make sure that every item of clothing is named. A full school uniform list will be sent home in November to all families who have enrolled at the school. Please note that plain black school shoes should be worn with the uniform. Summer uniform terms 1 and 4 and winter uniform terms 2 and 3. (Exception will be made for extreme weather conditions). Summer dresses are not suitable for winter and should not be worn with skivvies or tights underneath as winter uniform. Uniforms can be purchased directly from the supplier – Primary School Wear Deer Park, 51-53 Westwood Drive. Alternatively, the Sustainable School Shop can be accessed by families interested in purchasing and selling second-hand uniform items. The school is providing this service to our community; when registering on the Sustainable School Shop you need to nominate Kororoit Creek Primary School to receive your subscription. https://www.sustainableschoolshop.com.au/
Prep Transition program consists of 4 sessions and is designed to make you and your child feel comfortable about starting the most important year of school. It is also an opportunity for us to get to know your child before the school year begins. Whilst your child participates in engaging learning experiences, parents will attend relaxed information sessions about Kororoit Creek Primary School’s curriculum, as well as daily school life. Sessions cover literacy, numeracy, specialist classes, swimming program, school uniform, canteen and much more.
Thank you for your attendance at the Prep information sessions.
