ENROLMENT

All children living in our enrolment zone are entitled to attend Greenpark School. Enrolments are taken at all levels throughout the year. If you are living in zone and haven’t indicated to the school that your son/daughter will be attending at some stage, please contact Lynn Marriner lynnm@greenparkschool.co.nz

The act defines ‘In Zone’ where the child usually lives and it will be necessary to ask you to provide evidence that you are living inside the zone.

Proof of Residential Address:
Greenpark School has a Ministry of Education approved Enrolment Scheme in place. To comply with the provisions of this scheme, residential addresses will require verification before an enrolment is accepted. Please bring a copy of either a Tenancy Agreement or a Rates Invoice when enrolling.

SCHOOL ZONE

OUT OF ZONE ENROLMENT

If you are living outside of the school’s zone, it is only possible to secure a place at the school if there is a vacancy. The reason for setting up the enrolment zone is to ensure that our class sizes to not become too large and over-crowded. Children living outside the zone may obtain a place through a ballot system.

Each year the Board of Trustees 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.

If you would like to apply as an out of zone student, please contact the school office lynnm@greenparkschool.co.nz or 541 0606.

Applications for out of zone enrolments will be processed in the following order:

  • First priority does not apply as this school does not operate a special programme.

  • 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 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.

BIRTH CERTIFICATE AND IMMUNISATION RECORDS

As we are required to check birth certificates and immunisation records of New Entrant children, it would be appreciated if the birth certificate/passport, or appropriate residency documentation could be brought along to School as soon as possible for verification, if this has not already been done at the time of enrolment.

These items must be sighted prior to your child’s attendance.

Because you live in our enrolment zone, your child is automatically entitled to attend Greenpark School. Please note, you will be asked to provide address verification when completing an enrolment form. Please complete and submit this Intention to Enrol form in order that our records are updated and we can prepare for your child to attend our school.

TRANSITION TO SCHOOL FOR NEW ENTRANTS

  • Contact the school office at any age prior to turning 5 years old if you are intending to enrol.

  • 10 weeks before your child's 5th birthday, fill in an Enrolment Form. Other documentation required is also listed on the website. A staff member of Greenpark School will contact you to arrange a time to meet and complete the enrolment process.

  • Once a place at Greenpark School has been confirmed a transition programme will be provided to ensure a successful start to school.
  • School visits will be arranged prior to your child starting school. Our New Entrant teachers will visit all inzone Early Childhood Centres to meet your child and their Early Childhood teacher.

  • Parent information meetings will be provided to ensure you are informed about our school, vision, values and curriculum.
  • Enrolment Packs include a Stationery List. New Entrant Stationery Packs are available for purchase from the School Office.

  • Any questions or concerns can be discussed with Deputy Principal Christina Leef who leads the Junior School. Email: christinal@greenparkschool.co.nz 

 

TRANSFERRING FROM ANOTHER SCHOOL

 

If your child is changing schools and you are living inzone, you need to let their current school know first. You can then complete the online enrolment form and a staff member of Greenpark School will contact you to arrange a time to complete the enrolment process.

TRAVELLING TO AND FROM SCHOOL

With the growing traffic problems in Tauranga we have started an initiative with the Tauranga City Council to alleviate traffic pressures at the school gate. Learners and their families can sign up to our ‘Kids on Feet’ programme. This encourages learners to walk, scooter or bike to and from school as they collect rewards for their efforts. For those families where this is not possible you are encouraged to drop your children 500m from the school gate and for them to walk. We have designated two areas for this, Maleme Street and Moreland Fox Park.

 

 

SCHOOL BUS

 

In 2020 all students travelling on dedicated school buses or urban Bayhopper routes can travel for free before 9am and between 2:30 and 6:30pm. This is a one year trial and applies to school days only. Students must be in their school uniform. If you would like your child to use the school bus, please contact the office office@greenparkschool.co.nz to have them added to the bus roll.
