Kirkwood Intermediate - New Enrolment Scheme

Closes 9 Jul 2021

Opened 8 Jun 2021

Overview

The Ministry of Education has been working with Kirkwood Intermediate to establish a new enrolment scheme.

This is to assist the Board to manage the risk of overcrowding, provide a fair and transparent process for enrolment and to ensure we are making the best use of schooling facilities across the network of local schools.

If overcrowding occurs or is likely to occur at a State school, the Ministry of Education must establish an enrolment scheme for the school. 

A key part of an enrolment scheme is the home zone.

All learners/ākonga who live within the home zone of Kirkwood Intermediate will have an entitlement to attend the school and those that live outside the home zone may be accepted if there are out-of-zone places available and an application meets requirements. To be able to do this, boards at state schools keep an eye on the number of applications received from in-zone students to help them determine the places they might have available for out-of-zone students once all in zone enrolments are accepted.

Note that all students who are already enrolled at Kirkwood Intermediate before the enrolment scheme commences are entitled to stay at Kirkwood Intermediate. Siblings of current students will have priority access to any out-of-zone places offered by the school.

It’s important that we hear and understand community perspectives before we establish this new enrolment scheme at Kirkwood Intermediate – especially the design and practical implications of the home zone.  Please have a look at the map and overview information available before you participate in the consultation process.

The enrolment scheme will commence from Term 2, 2022.

This consultation process is about enrolment schemes, which determines the entitlement to enrol.
