Enrolment at Richmond Primary School
The strength of Richmond Primary School is its people. We are united in building an exciting and dynamic school culture and fostering an optimal learning environment for young minds. From our committed team of experienced, innovative teaching staff, to our community of parent helpers – not to mention our engaged children.
We’re founded upon a culture of inclusivity, diversity, and a connectedness to the local community. As a result, we develop children into confident, balanced and friendly individuals, and instil in them a lifelong love of learning.
Our School Zone
Our school zone is available on findmyschool.vic.gov.au which hosts the most up-to-date information on school zones in Victoria.
Students residing within our school zone are guaranteed a place at our school, which is determined based on your permanent residential address.
All other applications will be considered subject to available space, and prioritised according to:
- Students with a sibling at the same permanent address who are attending the school at the same time
- All other students in order of closeness of their home to the school
Our school manages enrolments using the Placement Policy to ensure that students have access to their designated neighbourhood school and may enrol at another school, if there are available places.
Foundation (Prep) Enrolment Timeline

The timeline advises families when and how to enrol their child into Foundation (Prep) at a Victorian government primary school, including Richmond Primary School.
You can find information and resources about the enrolment timeline at: Enrolling in Foundation (Prep).
