Thank you for considering Tauriko School as your school of choice for your child.

Tauriko School operates an enrolment scheme. All children who live within the zone operated by this scheme are entitled to come to Tauriko School as of right. Enrolment forms for these students can be obtained from the school office.

Parents of students who live within the school's home zone and who intend to enrol their child(ren) at any time during 2021, should notify the school as soon as possible to assist the school to plan appropriately for 2021.

Any children who do not live in this zone can pre-enrol to apply to be considered for a place the following term. If more students apply than there are out-of-zone places a ballot is held to determine which students are enrolled. Information about this process and how it works is on our website here.

Parents of students turning five, who live in our home zone and intend enrolling their child at any time during 2021, should notify Kay Taylor ( ktaylor@tauriko.school.nz ) as soon as possible to assist the school to plan appropriately for 2021.

We look forward to receiving your enrolment application.

School Procedures:

"Tauriko School operates an enrolment scheme. It is required that this operates under all legal obligations of the Education Act and as per MOE guidelines. The Board’s direction is to operate this scheme in order that sufficient places are available for all in-zone students and the Board's annual planning is supported.

“We ballot out-of-zone students to have no more than three classes of students at any one time in the school. The Principal makes decisions according to spaces available in NE to Year 6. When considering spaces in our Tall Poppies classrooms, only Year 7 students are balloted and only in Terms 2 – 4. ”(BOT meeting - 21 May 2020).

The Principal is to look at known numbers for the following term and follow this direction when setting ballot numbers for that term. The Board makes this decision being aware that out-of-zone students do not attract property funding and the impact this could have on class numbers with the school’s classroom space being at a premium."

All out-of-zone enrolment applications include evidence of genuine enrolment. These can include:

  • Sale and purchase agreement for an existing home

  • Any new home needing to be built would need title and have documentation of an expected start and completion date from the contracted builder.

  • Rental agreement

  • Copy of utilities bill showing proof of address with the name of the enrolling parent/caregiver on this

2021 Out-of-zone Enrolment Dates:

Term 3: Tuesday 6 July 2021, with ballot if needed Wednesday 7 July 2021

Term 4: Thursday 19 August 2021, with ballot if needed Friday 20 August 2021

Each term an application form will be on the website outlining the places available at the Year levels of the school where vacancies exist. The exact number of places available will depend on the number of applications received from students who live within the school's home zone and the Board's direction as per school procedures outlined above.
