Enrolment and Attendance


In Zone

To enrol a child at Edendale Primary School you will need to complete an enrolment form.  If you have several children, we still require one enrolment form per child.  You will also need to be in our enrolment zone.  The address that counts is the address you are permanently residing at upon the date of enrolment.   See Out of Zone if you do not reside in our Enrolment Zone.  The Enrolment Zone map is below.

We will need to photocopy your child's birth certificate and copy their record of immunisations.

Should you be from overseas we will need to have a copy of your child's student visa which should be in their passport.

Should there be any concerns around custody we require copies of all court orders.

Should your child have a medical condition that requires treatment we advise getting spare medication and having it stored at school e.g. inhaler, epi-pen.

Out of Zone

Edendale Primary School is subject to an Enrolment Scheme.  Children residing outside of our enrolment zone are required to apply for enrolment.  Applications times are advertised through our school newsletter.  You will need to pay close attention to this and it is best to apply as early as possible.  

Please contact the school office for further information on 03 206 6959.

Below is the map with its description to help you determine whether you are in our enrolment zone.

On-line Enrolment

You can complete an online enrolment here .   You will need to have your child's medical details and certified copies of the birth certificate, passport, and any visa documents to upload prior to beginning.  Please provide 2 x caregivers and their details.  

You can upload certified copies of your child's birth certificate, visa documentation, in-zone enrolment proof to your on-line enrolment or alternatively you will need to bring the original documents into the school office.

Once at school you will also need to sight and sign our consents form and provide some additional information regarding preschool attendance  at the school office.

Preschool Visits

The New Entrant teacher will arrange a number of school visits to help children transition into school as smoothly as they can.  

We encourage children on these visits to be in full uniform.

Children on pre-school visits are not allowed to use the bus service.  They must be dropped off and picked up by parents.

Preschool Programme

Our school runs a pre-school programme for future enrolments.  We meet once a term with the parents and cover the expectations of the school in regards to literacy, maths, oral language and being ready for school.

Please ensure you have completed an enrolment forecast so we can have you in our system.

We are required by the Ministry of Education to forecast 2-3 years ahead for our roll returns.  Advising us of your child's details early is beneficial to both the school and family.

Extended Absence

There are times when, for a number of reasons, children are away from school for extended periods of time.  Please complete this online extended absence form should that occur for your child/ren.
