Ministry of Education Guidelines

Declaration of Usual Place of Residence

 

Please be aware of Ministry of Education Guidelines regarding in zone enrolments.

 

The address given at the time of application for enrolment must be the student's usual place of residence when the school is open for instruction. This means that if you currently live at an in zone address but move to an out of zone address before your child's first day of attendance at the school, your child will not be entitled to enrol at the school.

 

The Ministry of Education has advised that parents should also be warned of the possible consequences of deliberately attempting to gain unfair priority in enrolment by knowingly giving a false address or making an in zone living arrangement which they intend to be only temporary eg:

  • Renting accommodation in zone on a short term basis
  • Arranging temporary board in zone with a relative or family friend;
  • Using the in zone address of a relative or friend as an "address of convenience", with no intention to live there on an ongoing basis.

Before enrolment takes place (ie before attendance begins), if the Board of Trustees has reasonable grounds for believing that the given in zone address will not be a genuine, ongoing living arrangement, the Board of Trustees may withdraw any offer of a place which it may have made on the basis of the given address.

 

After attendance has begun, if the school learns that a student is no longer living at the in zone address given at the time of application for enrolment and has reasonable grounds to believe that a temporary in zone residence has been used for the purpose of unfairly gaining priority in enrolment at the school, then the Board of Trustees may review the enrolment. Unless the parents can give a satisfactory explanation within 10 days, the Board of Trustees may annul the enrolment. This course of action is provided for under Schedule 20, cl 13 of the Education and Training Act 2020.

 

 

Enrolment Privacy Statement 

We only keep information for as long as it is needed, and for the purposes for which it was obtained. Information is stored in ENROL, the Ministry of Education school database. When a student moves to a new school and their records are requested, we forward the relevant information that we hold. We securely dispose of personal information that is no longer needed. Information is only used for the purposes for which it was obtained, except in certain circumstances (for example, for statistical purposes where the person's identity is not disclosed). We safeguard students' information and we do not release that information to third parties unless we are allowed, or required to, release information by law. This covers disclosure to persons other than those able to legitimately access material about their own children.

 

As a general rule, information about any person is not given to a third party without the person's knowledge, unless: the information is already publicly available, it is being passed on in connection with a purpose for which it was obtained, for example, to the student's new school, the right to privacy is over-ridden by other legislation, it is necessary for the protection of individual or public health and safety. You have the right to access the information that the school holds about your child.

 

If you do not agree to your child's information being passed on to their next school, they may not be able to gain early access to support and resources available to them. If you do not consent to your child's information being passed on to their next school or wish to withdraw consent, please contact the school office.
