All children must be enrolled prior to beginning at Birkenhead Primary School. The enrolment zone is shown below. If you live outside the enrolment zone, you will need to apply for an out-of-zone place.
To enrol for an in-zone place, you just need to complete the online enrolment form below. The office will then arrange for you to bring the following documentation to school:
Your child’s Birth Certificate
If your child was not born in New Zealand, their current passport is required.
Parent’s Passport (If the child has a parent who was not born in NZ and does not speak English as their first language, we require this evidence for ESOL funding)
Immunisation record e.g. Plunket book or Medical History
Proof of address x 3 - These must be no more than one month old e.g. Phone account, Power account, Gas account, Rental Tenancy Agreement, Rates account, Sale and Purchase Agreement
If you are enrolling in advance we will require you to provide up to date documents closer to your child's start date.
