Topic of Concern


New residents within the enrolment scheme boundary should enrol in the local school as opposed to going outside the zone to other schools.


Ministry Response: Under the Education and Training Act 2020 the purpose of an enrolment scheme is to ensure that the scheme does not exclude local students. It is the ministry’s expectation that students will enroll at their local school. However, a small percentage of students may choose to enroll at other schools



The Ministry of Education is currently working with the Board of Tamaki School to implement a new enrolment scheme. 

Enrolment schemes are needed to help manage enrolments across schools.  This allows Boards to manage the risk of overcrowding, provides a fair and transparent process for enrolment and ensures we are making the best use of schooling facilities across the area.

Enrolment schemes do mean that choice is limited in this area – all families will have entitlement to attend a school that is reasonably convenient to them, but won’t have the same entitlement to enrol at other state schools.  (Note - students already enrolled at a school before a home zone is implemented or changed are entitled to stay at their current school).

It’s important that we hear and understand community perspectives before we implement amendments or new zones – especially the practical implication and whether the amended boundaries accurately reflect the area.  Please have a look at the map and overview information available below before you participate in the consultation process. 

This consultation process is about enrolment schemes, which determines the entitlement to enrol.  It’s important to note that a student’s eligibility to enrol may be different to their eligibility for School Transport assistance.  Further information about eligibility to school transport can be found here https://www.education.govt.nz/school/property-and-transport/transport/sta-eligibility/
