The vision of Willmott Park Primary School is to create an inclusive, supportive, and safe environment in which every child can learn, explore, and thrive. Students reach their full potential when they are happy, healthy, and safe, and all members of our community are welcome participants in our school. We acknowledge that student wellbeing is intrinsically linked to student learning outcomes and that our approach must emerge from that understanding.
Willmott Park Primary Strategic Plan 2021 - 2025
Foundation Students: We are now accepting enrolment inquiries for Foundation 2023.
Year 1 – 6 Students: If you have recently moved into the area and wish to enrol your child at Willmott Park Primary School in 2022, please contact the office on (03) 9305 6639 to organise an appointment with our Enrolment Officer.
Please note: To enrol at school, children must be at least 5 years of age by the 30th of April in the year they commence.
Our school zone is determined by the Department and based on distance from other schools. Students who reside within the designated boundary area are eligible for enrolment at the school. The Department provides guidance through the Placement Policy to ensure that students have access to their designated neighbourhood school and the freedom to choose other schools, subject to facility limitations.
You can find more information and answers to frequently asked questions on the Department’s website under School Zones.
To check if you are in the Willmott Park Primary School Zone, please use this link www.findmyschool.vic.gov.au
The DET website outlines the guidance used by schools to determine permanent residence, that supports the application of the Placement Policy and provides fair and consistent information for schools to assist in the verification of a student’s permanent residential address.

Parents who wish to enrol their child/children at Willmott Park Primary School need to demonstrate that the child/children to be enrolled reside within the designated neighbourhood boundary area. Current proof of residency at the address indicated must be provided by way of the following:
- Primary source: a current lease agreement or a contract of sale agreement and
- Secondary source: electoral enrolment confirmation, council rates notices, other official documentation that demonstrates permanent residency at that address such as a driver’s license or health care card or utility bills.
- The Enrolment Policy of the school will take account of all the requirements of laws relating to discrimination equal opportunity, privacy and immunisation.
We have an on-site Deaf Facility that provides access to comprehensive mainstream education for primary aged Deaf and hard of hearing students in the northern outer suburbs.
Students must be currently residing within the ‘designated school neighbourhood’ before an enrolment will be accepted. Children who reside outside the school’s designated neighbourhood boundary who apply for enrolment at the school will be referred to their closest neighbourhood government school.
To assist Willmott Park Primary School in assessing your child’s eligibility for enrolment, please include in your enrolment application original or certified copies of:
1. Rental agreements or unconditional contracts of sale plus
2. A copy of two of the following:
• electoral enrolment confirmation
• council rates notices
• other official documentation that demonstrates permanent residency at that address such as a driver’s license, health care card or utility bills.
Documents should show the same address and parent’s/carer’s name as recorded on the school enrolment application form.
On request, you may also be required to complete a statutory declaration confirming the student is living in the address provided in the enrolment application and that the arrangement is genuine and intended to be permanent.
Note: Enrolment applications may not be successful if the requested documentation is not provided.
Completed Enrolment Forms must be submitted to the school office by 16th September 2022 to allow for planning for 2023.
Enrolments will be confirmed by post or email once all documents are provided.
An Orientation / Transition Program will be held in Term 4 for all Preps enrolled at Willmott Primary School for 2023.
Details of this program will be posted out in Term 3.
