Placement policy

The Department’s Placement Policy embeds the legal entitlement for students to enrol at their designated neighbourhood school, and to enrol at another school if there is sufficient accommodation.

The Placement Policy applies to the placement of students at all year levels, from Prep to Year 12.

Eligible children and young persons have the right to be admitted to their designated neighbourhood government school, regardless of capacity.

A student’s designated neighbourhood school is generally the school that is nearest the student’s permanent address as determined by the school zone. The Find My School website provides guidance on which school zone a student’s permanent residence is located within.

Enrolment Zone

Sandringham College’s designated neighbourhood zone can be accessed on the Find My School website

Sandringham College will accept “Out of Zone” enrolment applications if vacancies are available in the year level of enrolment.
