How to Enrol

Welcome to Albany Primary School.  Please check that you reside within our Enrolment Zone before proceeding to complete the enrolment process either online or in person at the school office. 

ENROLMENTS: In order for the enrolment application to be successful, we require a completed enrolment form which may either be completed online, or collected from the school office.  

ONLINE ENROLMENTS: If you are completing an online enrolment form then please be aware that you will still need to come into the office to bring in requested supporting documentation.  When completing online, use '1202' as our school code and you will be contacted in due course by the school office.   Online enrolment form

  • For a student joining us after Year 1, a copy of the child's most recent report is essential for accurate placement.

These documents along with the enrolment form form the Ministry of Education requirement for enrolment. Your child cannot start until the correct documentation is received. 

NEW ENTRANT ENROLMENTS: In order to best be prepared for arranging classes and teachers, we request pre-enrolment notification of any pre-schooler starting school 12 months in advance.  This is done by telephoning or visiting the school office. A completed enrolment form is not required until within 3 months of starting. 

For new entrant parent/caregivers, you will also be contacted regarding:

Parent Information meeting at which stage you will have the opportunity to meet with management and your child's teacher, and ask any questions that you may have.

New Entrant School visits which take place in the week preceding your child's start date.  School visits are generally Tuesday afternoon (1.30pm - 2.55pm) and Thursday morning (8.45am - 12.30pm).  Please report to the office before your first school visit so that you may be formally shown to your classroom and introduced to your class teacher.

Your child needs to be wearing our compulsory school uniform on their first day of school (not school visits). Our school uniform is able to be purchased through  www.argyleonline.co.nz

On enrolling your child, parents effectively agree to support the policies adopted by the Board of Trustees and Albany Primary School.  A copy of the Charter and School Policies are available at the School Office.
