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.

Each year, schools are required to put a notice in a local newspaper saying:
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.
Applicants are accepted in this order:
If the board receives fewer applications than there are places available all applicants will be enrolled.
The school must hold a ballot (draw) to fill the places available, and create a waiting list for applicants who are not successful in the ballot.
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.
The school will put you on a waiting list, and tell you your place on the list. If a place comes available and you are first on the list, the school will let you know, and you will have the option of accepting or rejecting the offer of the place. The waiting list expires when the next ballot is held.
Meanwhile, you will need to enrol your child at another school.
