Titahi Bay School

Titahi Bay School Enrolment Scheme

If you have a child ready to start school we would appreciate it if you enrol them at 4½ years old.  This helps us plan for classes. Once we have your enrolment we will contact you by letter to inform you when your child can come for visits to school. We call this programme “Kakano” and you and your child can visit on a Mondays 1.30-3pm.

You can purchase the books for your child at the office or on-line.

Your child will be welcomed into our school in a powhiri. Please ask your child’s teacher or find the dates in our school newsletter on our website. We love you and your whanau being part of this.

We have an enrolment scheme in place:


In a clockwise direction:

From the northern point at the intersection of Beach Road and Bay Drive the boundary is a line such that addresses in Bay Drive are in zone. Richard, Whanake, Thornley and Herewini Street addresses are not in zone. The boundary continues such that all Kapiti Crescent addresses are in zone. Jillett Street addresses (both sides) from Main Road to the intersection with Kapiti Crescent are in zone. All Mana Avenue addresses are in zone. Morere Street addresses are not in zone. Dimock Street addresses 1 to 45 inclusive on the odd side and 2 to 58 inclusive on the even side are in zone.

From the intersection of Dimock Street and Downes Street the boundary line is such that addresses 1 to 21 inclusive on the odd side and 2 to 26 on the even side of Downes Street are in zone and the boundary line then extends to the Titahi Bay Golf Course in the north-east. Mapplebeck Street, Rothwell Street and Gloaming Hill addresses are in zone. Keith Hart Grove addresses are not in zone.

The eastern part of the boundary follows the reserve south including Onepoto Rd addresses as in zone. The boundary then follows the sea until opposite Te Pene Ave.

Continuing clockwise the south to west boundary is a line such that Te Pene Ave addresses are in zone, Te Puke Street addresses are in zone, View Road addresses are in zone and Tireti Road addresses are in zone and the boundary line extends to Stuart Park and the sea and follows the Titahi Bay sea line until it connects to the intersection of Beach Road and Bay Drive (the starting point). Piko Street, Taupiri Crescent and Pikarere Street addresses are not in zone.

At the time of application for enrolment, the address provided must be the student's usual place of residence when the school is open for instruction. This means that if you currently live at an in-zone address but move to an out-of-zone address before your child's first day of attendance at the school, your child will not be entitled to enrol at the school. If you are in the process of building at an in-zone address, your ‘usual’ residence, i.e. the house you are living in on a day to day basis whilst building, is the address counted for enrolment purposes.

The Ministry of Education has advised that parents should also be warned of the possible consequences of deliberately attempting to gain unfair priority in enrolment by knowingly giving a false address or making an in-zone living arrangement which they intend to be only temporary e.g. ● renting accommodation in-zone on a short-term basis; ● arranging temporary board in-zone with a relative or family friend; ● using the in-zone address of a relative or friend as an "address of convenience", with no intention to live there on an ongoing basis. If the board has reasonable grounds for believing that the given in-zone address will not be an ongoing genuine place of residence, the board may withdraw any offer of a place which it may have made on the basis of the given address.

After attendance has begun, if the school learns that a student is no longer living at the in-zone address provided at the time of enrolment and has reasonable grounds to believe that a temporary in-zone residence has been used for the purpose of unfairly gaining priority in enrolment at the school, then the board may review the enrolment. Unless the parents can give a satisfactory explanation within 10 days, the board may annul the enrolment. This course of action is provided for under section 11OA of the Education Act 1989.

On enrolment parents are asked to give proof of residence (proof of residence could be a phone bill, rates bill etc). A copy will be kept on the student’s file and address information will be entered into the Student Management System (ETap) by the Enrolment Officer.
We regularly monitor addresses to ensure they are in-zone and request updates for personal details
