Enrolment Scheme


Enrolment Scheme


The Board of Trustees of Glen Eden School has implemented an enrolment scheme for the school under the provisions of Section 11H(1) of the Education Act 1989.

Under this scheme, students will be enrolled if they live within the home zone.

If you are not in the School Zone you will need to make an out of zone enrolment application.

Depending on the roll at any time the Board of Trustees will make a decision to see whether we can accept Out of Zone enrolments.

What does zoning mean?

Zoning means:

  • Children who live in the school's area (the zone) are guaranteed a place at their local school.
  • If the school has extra places, children who live outside the zone can apply for those places.
  • If the school has zoning you need to give an address within this zone when you apply to enrol your child. This must be your usual place of residence. If the school finds that you have given false information, they may cancel your child's enrolment.

What if I want to enrol my child at a school, but I'm not in their zone?

Each year, schools are required to put a notice in a local newspaper saying:

  • how many out-of-zone places are likely to be available
  • the closing date for applications for these places
  • any ballot dates for out-of-zone places.

However, you can contact a school at any time to ask about zoning and have them send you an enrolment pack which will have important dates.

How does the application process work?

Applicants are accepted in this order:

  1. first priority must be given to any applicant who is accepted for enrolment in a special programme run by the school
  2. second priority must be given to any applicant who is the sibling of a current student of the school
  3. third priority must be given to any student who is the sibling of a former student of the school
  4. fourth priority must be given to any applicant who is a child of a former student of the school
  5. fifth priority must 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
  6. sixth priority must be given to all other applicants.

If the board receives fewer applications than there are places available all applicants will be enrolled.

What if there are more applicants than places?

The school must hold a ballot (draw) to fill the places available.

Within 3 school days of the ballot happening, the school must post letters informing applicants of the outcome of the ballot.

The Secretary of Education's instructions to schools are that siblings at the same year level should be kept together for the purpose of the ballot, so that if one sibling's name is drawn, the other is automatically successful also.

Some primary schools with enrolment zones will hold more than one ballot each year. This is for 5-year-olds who are starting school.
