Bellevue School Enrolment Scheme



Bellevue School 2806

Effective 28 January 2019


Enrolment Scheme


The guidelines for development and operation of enrolment schemes are issued under section 11G (3) of the Education Act 1989 for the purpose of describing the basis on which the Secretary’s powers in relation to enrolment schemes will be exercised.


Purpose and Principles


  1. To avoid overcrowding or the likelihood of overcrowding at the school; 
  2. To ensure that the selection of applicants for enrolment at the school is carried out in a fair and transparent manner; and 
  3. To enable the Secretary to make best use of existing networks of State schools. 


In achieving its purpose, an enrolment scheme must, as far as possible, ensure that:


  1. The scheme does not exclude local students: and 
  2. No more students are excluded from the schools than is necessary to avoid overcrowding. 
     
     

Home Zone


All students who live within the home zone described below shall be entitled to enrol at the school.


The Enrolment scheme home zone includes addresses on both sides of boundary roads unless otherwise stated.


Northern boundary

Woodridge area – including Woodridge Drive, Black Pine Road, Silver Pine Avenue, White Pine Avenue, Cabbage Tree Grove, Pigeonwood Lane, Kentwood Drive, Ashwood Street and Northwood Close.


Western boundary

The western boundary runs south along both sides of Woodridge Drive, including Peppertree Lane, to the intersection of Horokiwi Road (west) and Kenmore Street. From here the boundary crosses through Newlands Park and around the suburb streets of Robert Street, Glanmire Road, Black Rock Road (from 10 (even) and 15 (odd) upwards), Lyndfield Lane and Miles Crescent.


From the intersection of Lyndfield Lane, Spenmour Street and Wakey Road, the boundary continues south to include Glover Street, Malvern Road and Fort Street.


All streets to the east of this boundary are in zone. 


All streets to the west of this boundary are out of zone including Colchester Crescent, Fernwood Street, Sunningdale Street, Pinkerton Grove, Warrington Grove, Bracken Road, Newlands Road, Wakely Road and Spenmoor Street.



Southern boundary

Fort Street


Eastern boundary

From Fort Street, the eastern boundary runs north along the inside of Hutt Road SH2, around the suburb streets of Dungarvan Road, Glanmire Road, Cromwell Point, Bendigo Grove, Ladbrooke Drive and around the outskirts of Waihinahina Park, Cedarwood Street (east), Red Beech Ave and back to Woodridge.


Horokiwi Road is not in zone


NB: On boundary streets for the zone, both sides of the street are included in Bellevue School Zone e.g.: Woodridge Drive, Glanmire Road, Horokiwi Road (West)





Proof of residence of a property within the home zone will be required (for example a copy of a utility bill with the name of a parent or guardian and an address within the home zone, covering the date of enrolment or earlier). Where a property has two or more entrances on different streets, or where the actual address of a property is in dispute, only the rateable address as recognised by the local City Council will be considered to determine if the property is in or out of zone.


Each year, applications for enrolment in the following year from in-zone students will be sought by a date which will be published in a daily or community newspaper circulating in the area served by the school. This will enable the Board to assess the number of places which can be made available to students who live outside the home zone.  


Special Programmes


This priority category is not applicable at this school because the school does not run a Special programme approved by the Secretary.



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 and on the school website. The notice will indicate how applications are to be made and specify a date by which all applications must be received. The notice may indicate how many places are available.


Applications for enrolment will be processed in the following order of 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

Will be given to applicants who are siblings of current students.

Third Priority   

Will be given to applicants who are siblings of former students.

Fourth priority  

Will be given to applicants who are children of former students.

Fifth priority

Will be given to applicants who are 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

Will be given to all other applicants.


If there are more applicants in the second, third, fourth, fifth or sixth 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.

The Bellevue School Enrolment Scheme will be implemented on 28 January 2019.


Under this scheme, students will be enrolled if they live within the home zone. 


The enrolment of out of zone students is governed by the provisions of the Education Act 1989.


The enrolment scheme, which includes a description of the home zone and a map, may be viewed on the school website    www.bellevue-newlands.school.nz  or at the school office. Copies of the scheme are also available from the school office, phone 478 7037.

Details of how applications from out of zone students are processed are available on our school website.


Parents of students who live within the home zone and intend enrolling their child at any time during the next year should notify the school by Friday 30 November 2018 to assist the school to plan appropriately for next year. Students who live in the home zone are entitled to enrol at the school.
