How to enrol your child

We welcome you to enrol your child at our school. We accept children from Year 1 to Year 8 who live in our enrolment zone. Please visit the school office with your proof of address to collect an enrolment pack. 

If you are planning to enrol your five year old, we encourage you to enrol them well in advance of their fifth birthday. We plan at least three school visits for children who are going to start in the new entrants class, so they can get familiar with their classroom and teacher before they start school. We are a cohort entry school which means there are two intakes of five year olds each term; during the start of Week One and Week Six. Visits need to be completed before the cohort entry start date.

If you have any questions please visit the school office or call 09 299 9349

All students who live within the home zone described below and/or shown on the attached map shall be entitled to enrol at the school.

The northern boundary starts where the Papakura stream intersects with the southern motorway and moves eastward along the stream as far as Porchester Road. It then travels down the centre of Porchester Road as far as the intersection with Popes Road.  It turns east into Popes Road (excluded) and then south into Mill Road.  It then travels west along Airfield Road until turning south into Porchester Road.  It follows along Porchester Road, including both sides of the road down to and including ‘The Avenues’ sub-division.  It includes the proposed road which borders Bruce Pulman Park and any potential extensions.

Residences on Mill Road south of Airfield Road are excluded.  The zone crosses Porchester Road travelling west and will include the northern side of the yet unnamed proposed road to the railway line.  It will then travel south down the western side of the railway line to Glenora Road (included).  From there the zone travels up the centre of the Great South and to, and including Spartan Road, the Southern Motorway as far as the Papakura stream.

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

Special Programmes

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

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, 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 Schedule 20 section 4 of the Education and Training Act 2020 (formerly section11G (3) 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.  

The Takaanini School Board has determined:

Applications will be accepted until 3pm Wednesday 20 March 2024 in terms of this scheme. The school retains the right to make all inquiries necessary to obtain information that may assist it to reach a decision in any particular case.
