New Enrolments

Starting school is a major milestone in a child’s life. It is an exciting and emotional time for both you, as parent, and your child. The transition can be made smoother through your positive encouragement and partnership with your child’s school. Together, we can support your child on their learning journey to achieve their potential. Sandringham East Primary School has been providing the local community with outstanding primary education for over 90 years. Our school community empowers, challenges and inspires learners to foster their creativity and talents, developing the skills and attributes to fulfil their dreams.


Enrolments for 2024

Our school zone is available on where you will find the most up-to-date information about Victorian school zones for 2021 onwards.

Students residing in this zone are guaranteed a place at our school, which is determined on the basis of your permanent residential address.

Our 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.

  • Children who are not Australian citizens are required to provide a copy of their current visa
  • Children enrolling in the Foundation year (first year of school) must be at least 5 years of age by the 30th of April in the year in which they enrol
  • Enrolments for Foundation 2024 are requested to be submitted by end of term 2, but can be accepted later in the year.


International Students

Our school is able to receive international fee paying students. More information is available on the Department of Education's website.

If your child is an Australian citizen enrolment may commence immediately once you arrive. For certain categories of permanent and long term residency, the same applies.

However, if your child is travelling on a visitor visa, a student visa or short term residency visa, you may need to pay fees to the Victorian Government prior to starting school. In this case, please contact the Principal at and we will reserve a place for your child and organise forms and information to be sent to you. The process then is that you will make arrangements with the Department of Education and Training to pay fees. Your child may then commence at Sandringham East as soon as they arrive.
