Enrolment Procedure

Hillpark Primary School has an enrolment policy in place to define criteria for enrolment.  Admission to the school is dependent on where you live. Children who live in zone have an absolute right to attend the school.  Enrolments  for  children  who  live  in  zone  are  accepted  throughout  the  year. A  copy  of  the enrolment zone map, together with a Ministry of Education description of the zone and a list of streets within our school zone, is available from the school. 
Children living outside the zone can make an out of zone application, and places for out of zone children will be allotted by way of a ballot. Ministerial regulations controlling the ballot will be strictly adhered to.  
 
The  Board  of  Trustees  shall  decide  annually  how  many,  if  any,  places  will  be  available  for  out  of  zone students at each year level taking into account existing and projected rolls. 
It is important to note that schools do not necessarily hold a ballot each year. Information regarding both  in-zone and out of zone enrolment is available from the school office. 
Please enrol your child as soon as they turn 4. 
 
Out of Zone Enrolments
  
Applications for enrolments will be processed in the following order of priority: 
 
First Priority    This priority category is not applicable as the school does not run a special programme approved by the Ministry of Education. 
 
Second Priority  will be given to applicants who are siblings of current students* 
Third Priority   will be given to applicants who are siblings of former students* 
Fourth Priority  will be given to applicants who are children of board employees 
Fifth Priority    will be given to all other applicants. 
If there are more applicants in the second, third, fourth or fifth priority groups than there are places available, selection 
within  the  priority  group  will  be  by  a  ballot  conducted  in  accordance  with  the  instructions  by  the  Secretary  under 
Section 11G(1) of the Education Act 1989.  
 *Applicants seeking second or third priority status will be required to give proof of a sibling relationship.
