Albany Primary School Enrolment Zone
Enrolment Zone Change
The Ministry of Education have informed us that they are continuing to review our current enrolment scheme, but due to the significant community feedback have advised that it is likely that any changes to the current zone will not take place until mid 2020, as they are continuing to discuss the situation with senior decision makers.
Our Board will continue to meet with Auckland staff this term to ensure required future planning needs are being met. We thank the community for your support and patience over this frustrating period of consultation. Your voice and collaborative action showed evidence in a very powerful way that when we come together in a united front, our vision of “learning makes a difference” resonates for us all.
Regards, Maree Bathurst and the BOT.
After discovering and considering community feedback received the Albany Primary School Board of Trustees are making the recommendation to the MOE to not reduce the boundary on South East border (including Unsworth Heights area) from our school zone .
After discovering and considering the community feedback received the Albany Primary School Board of Trustees are making the recommendation to the MOE to remove the overlap with Pinehill School on eastern border of our school zone, excluding Bushlands Park subdivision which will remain shared.
Please note that these are the recommendations of the Albany Primary School Board of Trustees. However, the final decisions will be made by the MOE. The Board will be having further discussions with MOE and will keep our community updated once information is at hand.
Albany Primary School
Board of Trustees
The school has an enrolment zone, which governs admissions to the school. If you live within the zone boundary your child has a right to attend Albany School. If you are a resident outside the zone, then an application will need to be made under the Balloting Provisions as covered by the Education Amendment Act. Details of this procedure are available at the school office.
Parents should note that the scheme is reviewed each year and the boundaries may be subject to review at this time, depending on the circumstances that prevail. Examples that may cause change are the number of pupils the actual site can hold or a new school opening in the area.
All students who live within the home zone described below shall be entitled to enrol at the school.
The Albany School home zone:
Proof of residence within the home zone is required by supplying two separate forms of documentation eg lease agreement, purchase agreement, telephone account or rates account upon enrolment.
