General Information


Craigieburn Primary School is almost at capacity (850 students).

The Department of Education has instructed us to only accept children from our local area or catchment zone. See letter attached below.

The aim is to reduce our Prep numbers to 90 students per year.

Our school zone

Our school zone is available on findmyschool.vic.gov.au. Findmyschool.vic.gov.au hosts the most up-to-date information about Victorian school zones for 2020 onwards.

Students residing in this zone are guaranteed a place at our school, which is determined on the basis of your permanent residential address.

The Department provides guidance through the School Placement Policy to ensure that students have access to their designated neighbourhood school and the freedom to choose other schools, subject to facility limitations.

You can find more information and answers to frequently asked questions on the Department’s website under School zones.

2021 Prep Enrolments are now open. We hope to have enrolments finalised by Tuesday 1st September.
