Overview - What is Happening?

The Ministry of Education is developing an enrolment scheme for Orewa North West Primary School, which will be in effect for 1 January 2023. Having an enrolment scheme in place will ensure the Board of Trustees has a fair and transparent mechanism to manage the roll as it grows.

What does this mean for my family?

If you live in enrolment scheme home area for Orewa North West Primary School you will be entitled to enrol your child at the school. This entitlement applies to new students starting school, as well as any primary school aged children currently attending another school in the area. Families who live outside the enrolment scheme home zone of Orewa North West Primary School do not have entitlement to enrol and could only attend if the Board of Trustees planned to enrol any out of zone
students. The enrolment scheme will establish the process for this, and places will only be available if the Board of Trustees considers it has the capacity to allow for this. Out of Zone places will not be accepted for the first 2 years of our school's operation. After this, the Board of Trustees will decide whether out of zone places are available for future years.
