Enrolment at Puketapu School in 2024

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

In 2024 there will be three enrolment periods, one in each of the first three terms. 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 3 places for Year 1 (new entrant) students are likely to be available for out-of-zone students to start at the beginning of Term 1 2024 (Wednesday 31 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 6 October 2023 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 16 October 2023. 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 2024.
