Going to your local school

Your child has the right to attend their designated neighbourhood school. This school is measured by a straight line from your permanent address, if you live in:

  • Metropolitan Melbourne

To find if you are in the Haddon Primary School zone please visit findmyschool.vic.gov.au

Most parents send their child to the public school closest to where they live.

Every student has the right to attend their designated neighbourhood Government school.

A Birth Certificate, Immunisation Status Certificate and Proof of Address (utility bill, land rates, contract of sale) is required for all new admissions.

Updating Information

The information which you provide on Enrolment Forms is important in helping us look after your child, and should be kept up to date. In particular we need to know: Change of address including changes to family living arrangements, change of email address, change of telephone number at home or work, change of parent’s work arrangements, change of student’s health/medical status or emergency contacts and any legal decisions that involve student welfare. We also ask parents to complete a form granting permission to use digital photos of their children in different publications.
