When you contact the school, please ask for Kath Johnson or Janine Robson who handle enrolment enquiries, or you are welcome to email us at admin@northcoteprimary.school.nz

We are happy to receive requests for enrolment forms via phone, post or email. We will send forms and an information folder to you.

Once a term, the school hosts a pre-enrolment meeting for parents of pupils enrolling. At the meeting, you will hear from the Principal, Deputy Principal, Team Leader of the Junior Team, a member of the FONS (Friends of Northcote School) group and a Board of Trustees member. Topics covered range from the organisation of the school, curriculum and assessment issues, helping your child settle into life at school, the role of the FONS group and the role of the Board of Trustees. The meeting lasts for approximately one hour and is usually held from 9.00am-10.00am.

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.

Application for enrolment will be processed in the following order or 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 must be given to applicants who are siblings of current students
  • Third priority must be given to applicants who are siblings of former students
  • Fourth priority must be given to any applicant who is a child of a former student of the school.
  • 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
  • Sixth priority must 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 Section 11G(1) 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.
