Please contact the school office with queries regarding out of zone enrolments

Home Zone

All students who live within the home zone described below (and shown on the attached map) shall be eligible to enrol at the school.

The zone as shown would have the following written description:

  • From the intersection of Brougham Street / SH76 and Barrington Street South East along the North East side only of Barrington Street to Milton StreetNorth East along the North West side only of Milton Street to Colombo Street. North on the West side only of Colombo Street to Tuam Street West on the South side only of Tuam Street to Hagley AvenueSouth West on Hagley Avenue to Moorhouse Avenue/Lincoln Road intersection South West on both sides of Lincoln Road to Bernard Street North West on Bernard Street to Walsall Street South West on Walsall Street to Clarence Street South North West on Clarence Street South to Leamington Street South West on Leamington Street to Whiteleigh Ave South on Whiteleigh Ave to Jack Hinton Drive South West on Jack Hinton Drive to Lindores Street South East on Lindores Street to Lincoln Road (including Moule Street) South West on Lincoln Road to the Christchurch Southern Motorway (SH76) overbridge East along the North side only of the Christchurch Southern Motorway (SH76) to Barrington Street.

 

Addresses on both sides of boundary roads are considered in-zone unless specified otherwise.

Each year, applications for enrolment in the following year from in-zone students will be sought by a date that 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 that can be made available to students who live outside the home zone.

Special Programmes

Addington Te Kura Taumatua operates a special programme of Conductive Education for up to 20 learners. (See school website for a programme description and the "Expression of Interest" pack). Allocation of available spaces in the special programme will be conducted separately from the allocation of other available places for out-of-zone students.

To be eligible for enrolment at Conductive Education Addington Te Kura Taumatua a child must meet the following criteria:

• Verified for ORS funding, and be diagnosed with an associated motor planning disorder.

Doorven 20/12/18

All applicants must meet the criteria outlined above, but may also present with associated learning needs such as; High Sensory Needs, High and Complex Needs (medically fragile), Visual or Hearing Impairments, or High communication needs (including those reliant on alternative and augmentative communication). However, the degree to which a student has a learning need will not be a determining factor in the allocation of spaces under the ballot system.

Each year the Board will identify the capacity of the Conductive Education Addington Te Kura Taumatua programme for the following year. If there are places available, the Board will publish this information by notice in a daily or community newspaper circulating in the area served by the school. The Board will also notify The Early Intervention Co-ordination Service. The notice will indicate how applications are to be made and will specify a date by which applications must be received.

If there are more applicants than places, the Board will offer places by way of a ballot. If there are more applicants in a priority group than there are places available, places must be allocated in priority order until a category is reached where the number of spaces available in that category is insufficient to accommodate the number of eligible students. Selection within that priority group must be by ballot conducted in accordance with instructions issued by the Secretary under Section 11G (1) of the Education Act 1989.

Places will be allocated to students in the following order:

• Those who have previously attended a Conductive Education Programme

• Those who live within the home zone, or are already enrolled at the school

Where there are more applicants than spaces, the ballot will be used to establish a waiting list for vacancies that may arise during the year. Applicants who live out-of-zone and do not secure a place in the Conductive Education programme will enter the selection process for places at the school on the same basis as other out-of-zone students (unless the parents advise they do not wish to apply for places outside of the special programme).

Out of Zone Enrolments

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. The notice will indicate how applications are to be made and will specify a date by which all applications must be received.

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

  • First priority must be given to students who have been accepted for enrolment in the Special Programme (Conductive Education) run by the school and approved by the Secretary for Education.

  • 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 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 ballot conducted in accordance with instructions by the Secretary, under Section 11G (1) on the Education Act 1989. Parents will be made aware 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.
