Admissions

From September 2017 Glenelg Primary School has a Capacity Management Plan in place. The Capacity Management Plan sets out the conditions for enrolment. Prospective enrolments should read the Capacity Management Plan. This can be downloaded by clicking the link.

Glenelg Primary School is also a  zoned school. Generally, only applications from families in the zone are able to be placed on the enrolment register if and when vacancies exist. We are currently full in many year levels with no capacity to increase the number of classrooms due to the limited size of our grounds (excluding the Glenelg SANFL football oval next door that we are fortunate to have access to). Accordingly, we are unable to enrol children living out of our zone. Families can apply to have their child added to the enrolment register using the Enrolment Register Application form and returning it to the school.

The Leadership Team are very happy to meet with you, have our student ambassadors show you around and answer any questions you may have.  Please feel free to phone and make a time to meet.

A folder of information regarding the school is available on request. This can be picked up from the front desk or it can be sent via email. In the year that students turn 5 they may begin school if their birthday is before the 1st May. Transition will take place in late November/early December.

Glenelg Primary School is a welcoming school with exciting programs and a commitment to student engagement and enjoyment in the learning process.  Our assurance is to support our students to unleash their learning potential and achieve their personal best.
