Enrolment at Puketapu School in 2023

Enrolment at our school is governed by an enrolment scheme, details of which are available from the school office.

In 2023 there will be four enrolment periods, one in each term. Information for enrolments within each of those periods will be advertised part way through the previous term.

As our school operates a Cohort Entry policy for new entrants which means that new entrants start school in groups through the year rather than on their fifth birthday, at specified points in the year: either on the first day of term or at a mid-point of a term after they turn five. More information is at https://parents.education.govt.nz/primary-school/your-child-at-school/cohort-entry/

For the first enrolment period, the school has determined that up to 10 places for Year 1-3 students and up to five places for Years 4-8 students are likely to be available for out-of-zone students to start at the beginning of Term 1 2023 (Monday 30 January). The exact number of places will depend on the number of applications received from students who live within the school’s home zone.

Parents of students who live within the home zone and intend enrolling their child at any time during the next year should notify the school by Friday 14 October 2022 to assist the school to plan appropriately for next year.

Applications are made online at https://enrolments.linc-ed.com/apply/NZ/2223

If the number of out of zone applications exceeds the number of places available, students will be selected by ballot. If a ballot for out-of-zone places is required, it will be held on Monday 17 October 2022. Parents will be informed of the outcome of the ballot within three school days of the ballot being held.

Details relating to the next enrolment period will be published in 2023.
