Newport Lakes Primary School Network Neighbourhood Area

All state schools have a Network Neighbourhood Area. The area is designed or calculated to place (as the crow flies)every house in an area nearest to their neighbourhood state school. 

Parents are encouraged to consider their nearest local school as their first option for enrolment but may enrol their child in a school outside their neighbourhood area if the school has capacity.
