At Papatoetoe Intermediate School we accept In-Zone and Out-of-Zone enrolments. Application packs for enrolment in 2021 will be available to download from our website and will also be sent to Year 6 students at our contributing primary schools around mid-year.
In addition to the enrolment form, we also require:
A copy of the student’s NZ birth certificate or NZ passport
If a student is not a NZ citizen, we require a copy of the student’s visa and parent’s work permit
A recent account showing proof of address in the name of the legal guardian e.g. power, rates or water bill (In Zone only)
If the student is applying under Priority 4 (child of a former student) then we require proof of the parent’s attendance at
Papatoetoe Intermediate School such as an old school report or photo.
The law requires that Papatoetoe Intermediate School gives priority to enrolling students who live in our home zone. In zone enrolments close Wednesday 2 September 2020.
Out of Zone
Out of zone places, where available, are offered according to the following priorities:
Priority 1: Special Programmes approved by the Secretary of Education (this does not apply to our school)
Priority 2: Siblings of current students
Priority 3: Siblings of former students
Priority 4: Children of former students
Priority 5: Children of Board of Trustees member and School employees
Priority 6: All other applicants
Where the number of students exceeds the places available, a ballot will be held from the group with the lowest priority according to the rules set down by the Secretary of Education. Out of zone applications must be lodged by Wednesday 2 September 2020. The ballot date for selection is Wednesday 9 September 2020. Letters notifying out of zone applicants of the outcome of the ballot will be emailed out to families Friday 11 September 2020.
