Prep Transition


Prep Enrolment Procedures
Currently, Wembley Primary School has a student population of 670 and we have a capacity to accommodate 700 students. As a result, School Council has approved the implementation of an enrolment strategy.

The enrolment strategy reflects the Priority Order of Placement clause in the Department of Education and Training’s Enrolment Policy:

Where there are insufficient places at a school for all students who seek entry, students are enrolled in the following priority order:

  • Students for whom the school is the designated neighbourhood school.
  • Students with a sibling at the same permanent address who are attending the school at the same time.
  • Students who reside outside of the school zone.
  • In exceptional circumstances, compassionate grounds.

Enrolment Procedures
Parents with children already attending Wembley Primary School:

  • Complete the Enrolment Form and provide same to office staff with child’s Immunisation Certificate and copy of Birth Certificate. If you would like to make an appointment to meet with the Principal please contact the Office on 9314 7054 and the office staff will assist you.
  • Complete the Expression of Interest for the Out of School Hours Care if required.

Parents new to Wembley Primary School:

  • Complete the Enrolment Form and provide same to office staff with child’s Immunisation Certificate and copy of Birth Certificate.
  • Complete the Expression of Interest for the Out of School Hours Care if required.

Confirming Enrolment
Enrolment will be confirmed on receipt of Enrolment Form for:

  • Students for whom the school is the designated neighbourhood school.
  • Students with a sibling at the same permanent address who are attending the school at the same time.
