Guided Tours of ENPS

When considering ENPS for your child’s primary education, we encourage you and your child to have a tour of our school and classrooms. Our Principal and Assistant Principals are available to conduct a tour with you. To book a tour, please contact the school’s office.

Last year we were in lockdown, and created a Virtual Open Day video, which you can still watch below.

We have a link to our Frequently Asked Questions, for any questions you might have. If you still have further questions after that, you can either call us on (03) 9379 3979, or email us at:

We hope to see you in person one day soon!

ENPS’s Enrolment Ceiling

Essendon North Primary School has an enrollment ceiling. The existence of an enrolment ceiling enables our school to maximise the available learning and play space for students, and enables all students to enroll for whom the school is nearest to their permanent residential address. Where there are insufficient places for all students who seek entry, the following priority is used for determining which students should be enrolled:

  1. Students for whom Essendon North Primary School is the nearest school to their permanent residential address in accordance to the ENPS enrolment boundary. Check at The Department of Education and Training's Placement Policy can also be viewed here.
  2. Students with siblings who will be concurrently attending Essendon North Primary School.
  3. Students who reside outside the school’s enrolment boundary, and in order of the closeness of their residential address to the school.

The Principal has the right to exercise discretionary judgment on matters pertaining to enrolments that are considered ‘special circumstances’.
