Macclesfield Primary School warmly welcomes local and international families to join our friendly and inclusive school community.

As an internationally minded school, our reputation stands on honouring our history, focusing on the present and preparing for the future. We believe that the growth of our children is at the heart of our community.
By focusing on the whole child, we facilitate a sense of belonging and achievement through powerful interactions with other learners and rich learning tasks.

The Department of Education and Training (DET) provides information on school areas via the www.findmyschool.vic.gov.au site.

Your child has a right to enrol in their designated neighbourhood school. Your designated neighbourhood school is determined on the basis of your permanent residential address. Every designated neighbourhood school is a great school that provides a supportive environment that fosters the emotional and intellectual growth of their students.
Applications to schools other than your designated neighbourhood school are considered subject to the school having available spaces, as outlined in the Department’s Placement Policy.

What you need to do

Visit your designated school and other schools you are considering enrolling in and submit an application for Foundation by 7 August 2020.

Your primary school will notify you of the outcome of your child’s Foundation enrolment application by 21 August 2020.
