Enrolment Requirements and Forms

Enrolling at Yinnar Primary School


Children who will reach the age of five years on or before 30th April may commence school in January of that year. An enrolment form may be obtained from the school office.

  • On first enrolment of a child, a Full Birth Certificate must be produced as proof of date of birth.
  • An immunisation certificate, received from the Immunisation Register, is also required to be presented on enrolment.


Our school zone


Our school zone is available on findmyschool.vic.gov.au which hosts the most up-to-date information on school zones in Victoria.

Students residing within our school zone are guaranteed a place at Yinnar Primary School, which is determined on the basis of your permanent residential address.


Yinnar Primary School manages enrolments using the Placement Policy to ensure that students have access to their designated neighbourhood school and may enrol at another school, if there are available places.

Foundation (Prep) enrolments


The Department of Education (DoE) has a statewide Foundation (Prep) enrolment timeline.


The timeline advises families when and how to enrol their child into Foundation (Prep) at a Victorian government primary school, including Yinnar Primary School.


You can find information and resources about the enrolment timeline and procedures at: Enrolling in Foundation (Prep).

Transferring from another school


To transfer a child from one school to another it is necessary to notify the current school of the intention to transfer the child. A transfer note is then prepared and forwarded to the new school. A progress report form will also be completed and forwarded to the new school.



Kinder Transition


We are currently planning our Transition Program for 2023 - dates will be advised when they are confirmed.


Statewide Transition Day - Tuesday 12 December 2023 from 8.45am - 12.15pm




School Entry Assessment


At the start of their Prep Year the children at our school participate in the Prep Entry Assessment Program which is used in Victorian Government Primary Schools.


The Assessment Tasks are designed to assist teachers in gathering information about your child’s literacy and numeracy understandings.  This information will help us provide the very best teaching and learning programs to cater for the individual needs of your child and to ensure that starting school is a rewarding and profitable experience.


If you are interested in further information on this process booklets are available for borrowing from the school or you can download more information here.





Prep Attendance Days


During February and early March Preps will attend on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Fridays only. Wednesday is a day for them to rest, and for teachers to plan and interview parents. 



Parent Payments


Under the Department of Education and Training's Parent Payment's Policy, Victorian Government schools are required to provide transparent information to their school community on voluntary parent/carer contributions.  This document outlines the voluntary parent/carer contributions at our school.
