Enrolment

Enrolments are usually carried out by the Principal so they can meet and welcome parents and new pupils. The office has all the documentation you will need to enrol, including zoning information and requirements.

We encourage new entrants (5 year olds) to have three pre-school visits before beginning school. Those children who are attending Springlands Kindergarten will be notified of pre-school visits by the Kindergarten. Placement of students is completed at school. The transition from pre-school is an important one and we ask parents to keep the new entrant teacher fully informed regarding your child. Pre-school meetings are held each term and parents are encouraged to attend.

Home Zone  

All students who live within the home zone are entitled to enrol at Springlands School at any time. View the home zone map 2023

Proof of residence within the home zone will be required. A tenancy agreement or district council rates demand are required. 

Out of Zone Enrolments

Applications from out of zone students will be processed in the following order of priority:

  • 1st priority will be given to applicants who are siblings of current students
  • 2nd priority will be given to applicants who are siblings of former students
  • 3rd priority will be given to applicants who are children of board employees.
  • 4th priority will be given to applicants who have strong family connections to the school – eg   grandparents and parents who have attended the school. 
  • 5th priority will be given to all other applicants

If there are more applicants in the second – sixth priority groups than there are places available selection will be by ballot conducted in accordance with the 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.
