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 map (see map below)
  2. Students with siblings who will be concurrently attending Essendon North Primary School
  3. Students who reside outside the school’s enrolment boundary map, 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’.
