Choosing a school for your child /children is a really important decision; having faith in the school environment you choose for your child is a critical part of the home – school partnership.

You’re very welcome to come for a tour and to have a chat with us about how we can support your child / children in their academic and their interpersonal development.

We have developed a Virtual School Tour and we invite you to contact the school to arrange an enrolment tour and conversation with the School Principal.

We have a four-visit program in Term 4 each year which supports our new students of all ages (and their mums and dads!) to learn about Exford and to feel confident about starting school.  We start with a Play Date before the Transition Program begins, just to start our Preps on their way!

We aim for all children to meet their next year’s teacher and to develop a group of friends. We hold information sessions for parents and help you with organising for the school start.

We invite you to contact the school Office to arrange a school tour.

School Catchment Policy

As of Wednesday 8 May 2013, Exford PS School Council implemented the enrolment policy that all new families who wish to enrol their children must live within the enrolment boundary as determined by the DET, with the exception of the siblings of currently enrolled students who reside outside the enrolment boundary. This policy is effective immediately. The estates of Eynesbury, Strathtulloh and Waterford are included in our enrolment zone, as is Exford and parts of Parwan and Mt Cottrell.

We ask that families intending to enroll at Exford Primary School for the 2021 school year please contact us for an enrolment tour and to collect enrolment forms.

Some of the new estates on Exford Road (Melton South) fall within the local enrolment neighbourhood for Exford PS.  With the opening of Eynesbury Station Primary School (interim name), we may have greater flexibility regarding our enrolment capacity for enrolments, so you are welcome to contact us.

We are beginning to plan for our 2021 school program and ask families planning on coming to Exford PS to contact us as soon as possible so that we can include them in our planning.  We also need accurate student numbers in order to provide the correct number of classes, teachers and classrooms for 2021 and beyond.  We would like to include your children in our transition program in Term 4.

We look forward to welcoming new children and families into our school community.

Please visit the Find my School website to see what your catchment zone you fall into.
