Enrolment Info

An Enrolment Scheme for Levin School came into effect on 7th February 2023.  This means that Levin School is now a
zoned school.

The Principal is responsible for the enrolment and admission of children to the school.  

Please email office@levin.school.nz to request an enrolment pack.

We encourage families to inform the school about a possible enrolment as soon as possible so that the school can plan accordingly.

Enrolment Policy

Updated 08.08.2023

Levin School has a continuous enrolment policy. Students can start on or after their fifth birthday at any time during the year.

Unless otherwise agreed with parents, students who turn 5 between 1 January and 30 June will be classified as year 1 for their first school year. Students who turn 5 between 1 July and 31 December will be classified as year 0.

Because the school has an Enrolment Scheme, the student’s usual place of residence must be in the zone, or the student offered a place through an out-of-zone ballot. A description of Levin School’s enrolment zone can be found here: Enrolment Zone

Out of zone enrolments will be considered in order of priority set by the Education and Training Act 2020 and the enrolment scheme. The order of priority is:

First Priority: students accepted for enrolment in a special programme run by the school (note this is not applicable to Levin School)

Second Priority: siblings of current students

Third Priority: siblings of former students

Fourth Priority: children of former students

Fifth Priority: children of board employees and board members

Sixth Priority: all other children

The Board will endeavour to accommodate out of zone siblings of students who were enrolled at Levin School on 7 February 2023 when the Enrolment Scheme came into effect. This approach will take into account space and resources available while ensuring that there are no negative impacts on current students, staff and the school community.

The Board will publish the number of out of zone places available for the following term by week 5 of each term.  Available spaces will be allocated to siblings of current students first, as per the priority levels set by the enrolment scheme. These published spaces will be allocated to all or none of the children in a priority group. 

All applications for enrolment must be supported by the following documentation:

  • Proof of residential address (an original document such as an electricity bill, bank statement or another document which has your name and address on it).
  • Proof of sibling relationship (for out of zone siblings). The Ministry of Education has published information defining the meaning of sibling here: Siblings definition.

Parents are welcome to arrange an appointment to meet the principal to discuss enrolment.

New entrants are encouraged to visit school before enrolment to ensure a smooth transition to school. Whenever possible advance notification is given to class teachers of new enrolments to their class.

The contact person for pre-school visits is the new entrant teacher. As many visits as required are arranged for Wednesday afternoons.
