North Adelaide Primary School introduces CMP

Thursday, 17 January, 2019

A capacity management plan has been introduced at North Adelaide Primary School to assist with the management of enrolment numbers and to ensure families living within the school zone have priority access.

Priority consideration will be given to prospective reception students who live within the school zone. 

Any reception student offered enrolment at the school and who is eligible to attend an Intensive English Language Centre (IELC), will be able to attend an IELC during reception and begin year 1 at the school the following year. 

Enrolment applications for prospective students in years 1 to 7 living in the school zone will be considered if or when vacancies exist. These applications will be considered based on the enrolment register, siblings at the school, distance from the school and any other personal needs. 

Enrolment applications for special consideration, including children under the guardianship of the Minister, will be considered by the principal. 

If places are not available at the time of enrolment application, prospective eligible students will be placed on the school’s enrolment register upon request, and referred for enrolment to other neighbouring schools. 


Full details of the plan are set out in the Government Gazette.

Given the constraints of North Adelaide Primary School’s site in terms of land area and heritage listed buildings, we need to manage the number of students attending the school so they can operate in a safe and manageable environment in years to come. 

This means ensuring families who live in the zone are prioritised for enrolment at the school.
