Enrolling at North Adelaide Primary School – Please read the following information carefully.

North Adelaide Primary School is under constant enrolment pressure.  Due to a Departmental assessment our numbers are capped and a Capacity Management Plan has been put in place until advised otherwise. This means that there are changes to our enrolment procedures and that living in the North Adelaide Primary School Zone does not guarantee enrolment at the school. Please click on this link to access the gazetted Capacity Management Plan pages 65-66 of the SA Government Gazette – 29 July 2021.

We DO NOT GIVE OUT ENROLMENT forms until an enrolment has been confirmed by the principal.

Reception Enrolment Enquiries - 2024 1st Intake (Starting school on 29 Jan 24)
We are currently accepting enrolment enquiries for preschool children who are 4 years of age and turning 5 prior to 1st May, 2024. Families who wish to register must provide the school with adequate proof of residency to the front office to go on the Register for 2024. 

Registrations for the 2nd Intake (starting school in Term 3, 24 Jul 24) will open later in the year. 

2024 Reception enrolment enquiries will close on Monday the 7th of August 2023.
If more than 46 applications for enrolment are received from parents living in the school zone by the beginning of Week 3, Term 3, places will be offered based on whether any, all or a combination of the following applies:

  • The length of time the child has lived in the school zone

  • Other personal needs such as curriculum, transportation/location convenience, social/family links at the school.

Families will be notified of the outcome of this process by the end of Week 7, Term 3 (8 September 2023).  Unsuccessful applicants will be referred for enrolment to other neighbouring schools.
