Welcome to Chilwell Primary School


2023 Prep Enrolment 


Eligibility for school: 

Children are eligible for enrolment if they turn five (5) years of age on or before 30th April 2023.   At Chilwell, we will accept enrolments at any time during the remainder of the year if places are available.  To assist with planning for 2023 (particularly grade and staffing arrangements) we ask that parents wishing to enrol their child lodge an enrolment form asap.  We require proof of age (eg. copy of Birth Certificate) for your child and a completed Immunisation Certificate (available from Medicare via mygov).

Please note:

  1. Due to the limited classroom accommodation at Chilwell Primary School, the School Council has found it necessary to formulate an Enrolment Policy to ensure that the overall school population remains at a manageable level. This means we can only confirm the enrolment of a child for whom Chilwell is the closest State Primary School.
  2. Any new families will be requested to supply verification of residence.

Note:    This does not apply to families with siblings currently enrolled in the school.

The borders of the enrolment zone are indicated on our website.  The school, under DET guidelines/policy adheres to the placement of children to their nearest school when deciding eligibility.

Further enrolments will be on a provisional basis only and will be confirmed if places are available.

Chilwell Primary School is located in Newtown with a current enrolment of 390 students. Chilwell is a family orientated school with a strong partnership with the community. Chilwell creates a learning environment for all students & staff in which the principles of care, courtesy & respect for the rights and property of all are valued. A school Chaplain is appointed to our school; the role is integrated with our Student Engagement Policy.

Classroom programs focus on developing a positive & cooperative learning environment in which children can achieve their potential in all curriculum areas. The school provides a sequential & inclusive curriculum based on  the Victorian Curriculum, enhanced by Learning Technologies (BringIT2Chilwell iPad program years 2-6) and guided by Early Years & Middle Years philosophies. Teachers remain committed to continuous professional development. Team planning of curriculum and Professional Learning Teams promote a shared pedagogy, are driven by assessment data and supported Literacy, Numeracy and ICT Coaching. While Literacy, Numeracy & ICT are our curriculum strengths we have high quality specialist teaching programs in Physical Education, Visual Arts, LOTE (Italian) and STEM, (Science, Technology, both Design / Digital, and Mathematics) and a Library. This school has 24.5 equivalent full time staff, 2 principal class officers, 2 learning specialists, 1 Disability and improvement manager, 21 teachers and 4 Education Support staff.
The effects of the COVID virus has challenged our school during 2021, but this has only highlighted the strong support the school has from its community and the collegiate support our staff give to each other and our students. We look forward to a much more settled year in 2022.
