School Zone Information
Te Matauru School Zone - the new primary school in Rangiora have posted their school zone on their website http://tematauru.school.nz/zone/. Parents and caregivers will notice that part of the new school zone is shared with our Ashgrove School zone. This is identified as part of West Park and The Oaks subdivision. If you have children at Ashgrove and you live in the shared zone your children and any other younger siblings will continue to attend Ashgrove School. Any new families that move into the subdivisions with the shared zone will have a choice until July 2020 as to which school they would like their child to attend. In Term 2, 2020 the four Rangiora primary schools, including Te Matauru, will review their enrolment schemes. If you are unsure about the zones please inquire with our school office.

- The boundary to the North is south of the Ashley River.

We are not currently accepting out of zone enrolments.
Should our Board of Trustees determine that we have space for enrolments from outside our zone in the future, then we will advertise this in the Northern Outlook newspaper. The process would then be:
The applications would be considered at a Board of Trustees meeting, and if there is a need to ballot, names of children will be drawn at this meeting. Parents will be informed of the outcome of the ballot within three school days of the ballot being held.
The Education Act 1989 (the Act) provides the legislative framework under which a board of trustees may develop, implement and operate an enrolment scheme. The Education Amendment Act (No 3) 2010 has changed the requirements in s11F of the Act around the order of priority for applicants who live outside a school's home zone. The new order of priority is as follows:
First priority must be given to any applicant who is accepted for enrolment in a special programme run by the school:
Second priority must be given to any applicant who is the sibling of a current student of the school:
Third priority must be given to any student who is the sibling of a former student of the school:
Fourth priority must be given to any applicant who is a child of a former student of the school:
Fifth priority must be given to any applicant who is either a child of an employee of the board of the school or a child of a member of the board of the school:
Sixth priority must be given to all other applicants.
