Enrolment - Enrolment Process

Enrolling your child for an education at Ripponlea Primary School is the beginning of an exciting journey for both your child and your family. At Ripponlea we have an open and inviting learning environment that enables us to work flexibly within the teaching spaces. We provide fun, supportive and challenging learning experiences for all students and actively encourage parent participation, to help forge strong home-school links.

We aim to support your child’s enrolment with transition programs, either from Kindergarten to Foundation, or from another school to Ripponlea Primary School. This is managed through a formal Kinder to Foundation transition program and if transferring from another school, flexible arrangements to meet your child’s needs.

If you are considering our school for your child/children’s education, please join us for a school tour. You are most welcome to bring your child/children along.

Ripponlea Primary School is not a zoned school.

Foundation (Prep) Enrolment

Parents are very pleased to know that we have a comprehensive ‘Stepping-Up’ orientation program designed specifically to help all Foundation students settle into their new school. These times give all children a chance to become familiar with the school environment quickly and easily. Importantly, these sessions give parents the opportunity to meet each other and learn more about the school.

Ripponlea Primary School is a member of the Stonnington and Glen Eira (SaGE) network of government primary and secondary schools. All SaGE schools request that parents submit an enrolment form along with relevant documents to the school office by the end of July, prior to the year of student commencement. This date is common to all SaGE primary schools in an endeavour to ensure schools have ample time to plan and provide classroom space and staff.

Whilst we ask families to indicate their intent by then, we are not a zoned school and Foundation enrolments will be accepted at any time.
