Enrolment Scheme

Our school operates an enrolment zone. Our zone protects our school from overcrowding. If you live within the school zone, then your children have automatic acceptance. Out-of-zone enrolments are considered via a ballot system, and are subject to classroom availability.

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

    First priority: will be given to any applicant who is accepted for enrolment in a special programme run by the school. 

    Second Priority: will be given to any applicant who is the sibling of a current student of the school. 

    Third Priority: will be given to any student who is the sibling of a former student of the school:

    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

Out of zone enrolments must identify which of the six priority groups that they are applying under. Available places are allocated to priority groups in the order that they are listed above.  If the number of applicants exceeds the number of places available, students will be selected by ballot. If there are more applicants in the second, third, fourth, fifth and 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 the ballot by notice in a daily or community newspaper circulating in the area served by the school and the school newsletter, the school Facebook page and the school website

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

School Entry Information

At Te Kura a Manunui we have a cohort entry policy for students who are due to start school for the first time. 

How it works 

  • We have two intake periods each term - at the start of term and at mid term.

  • All new entrants who turn 5 before the start of the term can start at the beginning of that term, or at a later mid term or start of term date before their 6th birthday.

  • If their birthday falls after the start of term but before the mid term date, they can enrol on the mid term date, or at a later start of term or mid term date before their 6th birthday.

  • Children must have turned 5 before they can enrol in school.

  • Start dates are dictated by the Ministry of Education and local early childhood centres / kohanga and whānau will be notified of these dates at least a term in advance. 

  • This will mean that we have eight dates during the year where new entrants start in the classroom. Students will not start on their 5th birthday.
