Enrolment Scheme

Sylvia Park School – Zone confirmation and out of zone applications

In order to avoid overcrowding, or the likelihood of overcrowding, the board of Sylvia Park School has adopted an enrolment scheme which has been approved by the Ministry of Education.

Under this scheme, students will be enrolled if they live within the home zone shown below. 

The enrolment of out of zone students is governed by the provisions of the Education Act 1989. The enrolment scheme, which includes a precise description of the home zone, is available online at www.sylviapark.school.nz and may be viewed at the school office where copies of the scheme are also available.

_____________________

 

The board invites applications from parents/caregivers who wish to enrol their sons and daughters (born in 2012) at Sylvia Park School for this year.

To apply for enrolment please complete and return a pre-enrolment form found at the bottom of this page. These are also available from the school office and our facebook page.

These can be mailed to:

Sylvia Park School

3 Longford St

Mt Wellington 1060

Or emailed to office@sylviapark.school.nz

Or hand delivered to the office.

The deadline for receipt of applications for out of zone places for this year is Tuesday 11th April, 2017 at 10.00am.

Parents of students who live within the home zone should also apply by this date to assist the school to plan appropriately for next year.

The board has determined that 40 Year 1 places (born in 2012) are likely to be available for out of zone students this year. The exact number of places will depend on the number of applications received from students who live within the school’s home zone.

If the number of out of zone applications exceeds the number of places available, students will be selected by ballot. If a ballot is required, it will be held on 12th April 2017. Parents will be informed of the outcome of the ballot within three days of the ballot being held.

 

Effective from 1st May, 2017 (Start of Term 2)

The guidelines for development and operation of enrolment schemes are issued under section 11G (3) of the Education Act 1989 for the purpose of describing the basis on which the Secretary’s powers in relation to enrolment schemes will be exercised.

Home Zone

All students who live within the home zone described below and shown on the attached map shall be entitled to enrol at the school.

Starting at the intersection of Mt Wellington Highway and Waipuna Road and Penrose Road, travel west on Penrose Road (228, 233 and above included) to Ruawai Road (Jarman Road and offroads included). Travel south along both sides of Ruawai Road, west along Whitford Avenue and south east along Aranui Road (87, 102 and below included). From the intersection of Whitford Avenue and Aranui Road, travel cross country to the Southern Motorway (SH1). Travel south east along SH1 to where the motorway crosses Clemow Drive. Follow Clemow Drive east to Carbine Road (82, 89 and below included). Continue east across country to the coastline. Follow the coastline north to the Pakuranga Highway and travel west along Pakuranga Highway and Waipuna Road to Ireland Road (123, 124 and above included). Continue west along Waipuna Road, back to the starting point.

Proof of residence within the home zone will be required.

Each year, applications for enrolment in the following year from in-zone students will be sought by a date which will be published in a daily or community newspaper circulating in the area served by the school.  This will enable the board to assess the number of places which can be made available to students who live outside the home zone.

Out of Zone Enrolments

Each year the board will determine the number of places which are likely to be available in the following year for the enrolment of students who live outside the home zone. The board will publish this information by notice in a daily or community newspaper circulating in the area served by the school. The notice will indicate how applications are to be made and will specify a date by which all applications must be received.

Applications for enrolment will be processed in the following order of priority:

First Priority        This priority category is not applicable at this school because the school does not run a special programme approved by the Secretary

Second Priority    will be given to applicants who are siblings of current students.

Third Priority       will be given to applicants who are siblings of former students.

Fourth Priority     will be given to any applicant who is a child of a former student of the school.

Fifth Priority         will be given to any applicant who is either a child of an employee of the board of the school or a child of a member of the board of the school.

Sixth Priority        will be given to all other applicants.

If there are more applicants in the second, third, fourth, or fifth priority groups than there are places available, selection within the priority group will be by a ballot conducted in accordance with instructions issued by the Secretary under Section 11G(1) of the Education Act 1989. Parents will be informed of the date of any ballot by notice in a daily or community newspaper circulating in the area served by the school.

Applicants seeking second or third priority status may be required to give proof of a sibling relationship.
