Portland School

Closed 6 Jul 2024

Opened 27 May 2024

Overview

The Ministry of Education is currently working with the Board of Portland School to establish a new enrolment scheme. The new scheme will come into effect Term 4 2024.

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.

 

 

Kaupapa whakauru

He mōhiohio mā ngā whānau me te hapori ā-kura

E mahi ana te Poari ki Te Tāhuhu o te Mātauranga hei whakatū i tā mātou Kaupapa Whakauru.

He rite tonu te aroturuki a Te Tāhuhu o te Mātauranga i te pikinga taupori, ngā āhua whakauru, me ngā panoni rārangi kura ā muri ake puta noa i Tai Tokerau. Hei wāhanga o tēnei mahi aroturuki, e whakapono ana te Manatū ināianei he mea waiwai tētahi kaupapa whakauru mō tō mātou kura Portland School.

Ko ngā ākonga katoa kua whakaurua kētia, e haere ana ki tō mātou kura kāore e pāngia e te panoni, ā, ka āhei te haere tonu ki te kura ahakoa kei hea e noho ana i tēnei wā.

Mā te kaupapa whakauru hou/panoni e:

  • whakarite kia whai ara matatika, mārama hoki mātou hei whakahaere i te rārangi ā-kura.
  • whai i tētahi takiwā kāinga matawhenua. Ko ngā tamariki e noho ana ki roto i te takiwā kāinga matawhenua ka āhei te whakauru ki te kura.

He nui ngā mōhiohio ka kitea mō ngā kaupapa whakauru ki te pae tukutuku a te Tāhuhu, tae atu ki ngā pātai auau mā ngā whānau me te hapori. Mō ngā kaupapa whakauru – Te Mātauranga ki Aotearoa

Ina whakawhanake ana, panoni ana rānei i tētahi kaupapa whakauru, me mātua akoako te Tāhuhu o te Mātauranga ki te Poari o te kura, me te mahi i ngā mahi tika kia mārama ki ngā whakaaro o te hapori pātata.

To have your say answer the questions in this survey.

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 Portland school.  (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 establish these new schemes – especially the practical implication and whether the new boundaries accurately reflect the area.  Please have a look at the maps 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/

The proposed enrolment scheme map, written description and factsheet for Portland School can be found in files attached on the bottom of the page (please read these before taking part in the consultation).

The Ministry of Education is currently undertaking consultation about the new enrolment scheme. You can have your say by:

  • Completing the survey below
  • Emailing Taitokerau.enrolmentschemes@education.govt.nz if you have further questions or comments.

Ministry will consider all feedback and liaise with the Board before making a final decision.
