Doncaster Gardens Primary School has a restricted enrolment zone approved by the Department of Education and Training (DET).
Our school follows the Department of Education ‘Placement Policy’. This states that ‘eligible children and young persons have the right to be admitted to their designated neighbourhood government school, regardless of capacity’ based on their residential address. A student’s designated neighbourhood school is generally the school that is nearest the student’s permanent address as determined by the school zone.
In circumstances where we may not be able to accept all applications due to existing or future capacity concerns, we will manage enrolment applications in accordance with the following Department of Education priority order of placement:
- students for whom the school is the designated neighbourhood school
- students with a sibling at the same permanent address who are attending the school at the same time
- where the Regional Director has restricted the enrolment, students who reside nearest the school
- students seeking enrolment on specific curriculum grounds

Documents should show the same address and parent’s/carer’s name as recorded on the school enrolment application form.
On request, you may also be required to complete a statutory declaration confirming the student is living in the address provided in the enrolment application and that the arrangement is genuine and intended to be permanent.
Note: Enrolment applications may not be successful if the requested documentation is not provided.
