GLADSTONE PRIMARY SCHOOL Proposed Enrolment Scheme

The Gladstone Primary School Board proposes an amendment to the existing enrolment scheme as agreed by the Ministry of Education. Under section 11H (1) of the Education Act 1989. The changes are principally to amend the perimeter of our home zone around the Unitec site. No current houses in our zone are affected.

We are required to consult on the proposed amendments with the community.

Members of the community are invited to make comment regarding this proposed enrolment scheme in writing to: The Board of Trustees, Gladstone Primary School, 8 Seaview Terrace, Mt Albert, Auckland 1025 closing Saturday 2nd September 2017.

Enrolment Scheme

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.

Follow SH16 east towards St Lukes Road, back to the starting point.

All residential addresses on included sides of boundary roads and all no exit roads off included sides of boundary roads are included in the zone unless otherwise stated.

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.

Special Programmes

This priority category is not applicable at this school because the school does not run a Special programme approved by the Secretary.

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, fifth or sixth 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.
