Enrolment - Expression of Interest
IMPORTANT NOTE FOR NEW ENTRANTS:
Te Mata School has an in depth ‘transition to school’ program, this starts 5 weeks prior to your child turning 5 years old.
To ensure your child completes the full transition program, we recommend you ballot the term prior to them turning 5. For example if your child turns 5 in Term 4, we suggest you ballot to start in Term 3 when they will start their transition visits. This allows your child to complete their transition program in time for their 5th Birthday.
Alternatively, if you would like to print off the form and bring it into school you can download this using the link below.
Te Mata School’s Enrolment Scheme
In order to avoid overcrowding, or the likelihood of overcrowding, the Te Mata School Board of Trustees has adopted an enrolment scheme. Under this scheme, students will be enrolled if they live within the home zone described below. The enrolment of out of zone students is governed by the provisions of the Education Act 1989.
- This enrolment scheme began on Monday 23rd April, 2012
- Maximum Roll of 102
- The Enrolment Zone
The ‘home zone’ boundaries mirror the school’s Transport Entitlement Zone (TEZ) boundaries and therefore do not encroach on other adjoining school catchments.
We commence the zone at 1711 Kawhia Road (as per TEZ). Then “take direct lines” to the ends of each road (Makomako Rd, Shea Rd, Plateau Rd, Houchen Rd, Ponds Rd) – through to 187 Te Mata Road. Then take ‘direct lines” to 197 Maungatawhiri Road, 675 Te Hutewai Road, and 840 Whaanga Road and then a direct line to the coast. Follow the coast south to a point on the coast that stretches directly across the Aotea Harbour back to where the zone commenced at 1711 Kawhia Road (both sides of the road included unless otherwise stated).
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 and on the school website www.temataraglan.school.nz.
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
- Priority 1: – Siblings of current students
- Priority 2: – Siblings of former students
- Priority 3: – Children of Board Employees
- Priority 4: – Children of Board Members
- Priority 5: – Attendance at Matapihi (Early Childcare Facility) and/or Te Mata Early Childcare Centre
- Priority 6: – All other applicantsIf there are more applicants in the first, second, third, fourth, or fifth 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 and on the school website.
