Local Intake Area

Your child is guaranteed a place if the child’s usual place of residence is within the Dawson Park Primary’s local intake area.

Accordingly, Dawson Park Primary can only consider offering places to students from outside the local intake area if long term spare accommodation capacity is available. The school takes into account future local growth when determining its spare accommodation capacity. An enrolment application cannot be approved unless the school is able to accommodate a student for each year they could attend the school.  Enrolment applications from outside the local intake area are approved in the following priority order:

  • a child who qualifies for an approved specialist program for that year, many of these programs are in secondary schools;
  • a child who has a sibling enrolled for that year and lives closest to the school, except where the sibling is in an approved specialist program; 
  • a child who lives closest to the school and does not have a sibling enrolled for that year or has a sibling in an approved specialist program. Enrolment applications from students outside the local intake area will be declined if the school has no long term capacity to accommodate additional students.
