School Zone

Every Victorian student has a legislated right to enrol at their designated neighbourhood school.

The school zone for Roxburgh Homestead Primary School is available here. Students who reside within the allocated school zone (based on their permanent residential address) are guaranteed a place at our school. Students who reside outside the allocated school zone will be considered based on the criteria set out by the Department of Education, this may result in the student being placed on the waiting list.

School zones for Victorian government schools are available at findmyschool.vic.gov.au

For any feedback or queries about school zones, please contact the Victorian School Building Authority (VSBA) via:
Email: vsba@education.vic.gov.au
Telephone: 1800 896 950

Enrolment Priority Order

In circumstances when a school may not be able to accept all applications due to existing or future capacity concerns, schools must manage enrolment applications in accordance with the following priority order of placement:

  1. students for whom the school is the designated neighbourhood school
  2. students with a sibling at the same permanent address who are attending the school at the same time
  3. where the Regional Director has restricted the enrolment, students who reside nearest the school
  4. students seeking enrolment on specific curriculum grounds
  5. all other students in order of closeness of their home to the school

In exceptional circumstances, a student may be enrolled in a school based on compassionate grounds. This is an overarching consideration and does not form part of the priority order of placement. Schools are permitted to assess and make a determination for exceptional circumstances applications on a case-by-case basis.  For more information, please view the Education Department's Placement Policy
