Our school zone
Our school zone is available on findmyschool.vic.gov.au. Findmyschool.vic.gov.au hosts the most up-to-date information about Victorian school zones for 2020 onwards.
Students residing in this zone are guaranteed a place at our school, which is determined on the basis of your permanent residential address.
The Department provides guidance through the School Placement Policy to ensure that students have access to their designated neighbourhood school and the freedom to choose other schools, subject to facility limitations.
You can find more information and answers to frequently asked questions on the Department’s website under School zones.

Please finalise enrolments as soon as possible as scheduling of Bentleigh West Primary Schools’ Transition and EYE (Early Years Evaluation) is about to commence.
Bentleigh West Primary School offers a positive transition to school.
Children develop skills as they grow and learn that are building blocks for their future learning.
At Bentleigh West we conduct a pre-Prep Assessment that is administered individually with the pre-Prep children. It is part of the important partnership between parents and the school, providing information to encourage a positive transition.
The pre-Prep assessment enables us to assess developmental strengths and readiness for learning at school and to identify any areas where children may benefit from additional learning experiences. Results assist us with the monitoring of learning gains during the first years of school. Parents receive a full report of their child’s results.
