The Board of Howick Primary School is working with the Ministry of Education to establish an Enrolment Scheme.

The Ministry of Education regularly monitors population growth, enrolment patterns, and future school roll changes across Tāmaki Makaurau. As part of this regular monitoring, the Ministry now considers an enrolment scheme is necessary for our school.

Any student currently enrolled and attending our school will not be impacted by the change and will be entitled to continue attending the school irrespective of where they currently live.

The new/amended enrolment scheme will:

  • ensure we have a fair and transparent way to manage the school roll.
  • will include a geographical home zone. Children that live within the home zone will be entitled to enrol at the school.

You can find extensive information about enrolment schemes on the Ministry’s website, including frequently asked questions for whānau and community. About enrolment schemes – Education in New Zealand.

When developing an enrolment scheme, the Ministry must consult the school’s Board and take reasonable steps to understand the views of the local community.

The Ministry will be consulting with us in the near future, and we will share this process with you on our school channels so you can have your say.
