Starting Primary School: The Enrolment Process

The first step to enrolling your child at Williamstown Primary School is to complete a Student Enrolment Form.
PDF version: Student Enrolment Form (PDF).
Editable Word version: Student Enrolment Form (Word)
A paper version of the form is also available at the school office.

If you are a separated family, one parent will need complete the Student Enrolment Form and the other parent will need to complete the Alternative Family Student Enrolment Form. Please contact the school office for further details.

When submitting the Student Enrolment Form, also attach:

  • Your child’s Birth Certificate
  • Your child’s Immunisation Certificate/Record
  • Proof of residence – utility bill, driver’s licence, rental agreement, etc. (for new families to the school.)

Please note:

  • To commence primary school, children must be five years old by 30th April the year they start school.
  • At Williamstown Primary School, we accept enrolments for the following year from March onward. We do not manage a wait list – so we do not accept enrolments beyond the next school year.
  • If you have enrolment questions, please contact the school office.

Upon receipt of your enrolment, an appointment may be scheduled for you and your child/ren to meet with the Principal or Assistant Principal to further discuss your application, if required.

School Tours

Each year at around May, we host school tours for families with kindergarten-aged children who plan to start school the following year. Currently, due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are offering a virtual on-demand tour that provides insights into school life at Williamstown PS, as well as a live online information session with the Principal team. This online session is an opportunity to find our more about our school and have your questions answered.

We encourage all prospective families to watch the virtual tour videos and join the live chat session, which can be accessed here.

Enrolment Submitted – What’s Next?

Families of kindergarten children are encouraged to submit their enrolment form for the coming year by end of June. At Williamstown Primary School, we email our placement offers at the end of July and our transition program is held in November.
