Enrolment Information for In Zone Students
Entitlement to Enrol at Silverdale School
Section 11D(1) of the Education Act 1989 provides that, subject to the provisions of that Act, a person who lives in the home zone of a school that has an enrolment scheme (such as Silverdale School) is entitled to enrol at any time at that school. “Enrolment” occurs when attendance at the school commences and the student is first marked as present on the school roll. The school may actively collect information and make all enquiries necessary in its opinion to ensure that enrolment details contained in this application are accurate.
Moving out of the Home Zone between pre-enrolment and the commencement of attendance a Silverdale School.
The address given at the time of application for pre-enrolment 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 and the Board may withdraw any offer of a place made on the basis of the given address.
Enrolment based on false information or temporary residence.
The Ministry of Education has advised that parents should be warned of the possible consequences of attempting to gain enrolment by knowingly giving a false address or false information or by making an in-zone living arrangement which is intended to be only temporary. For example:
If the School learns that a student was not living at the in-zone address given at the time of pre-enrolment, or the School has reasonable grounds to believe that a temporary in-zone residence has been used for the purpose of gaining enrolment at School the Board may review that enrolment. Unless the parents can provide a satisfactory explanation within 10 days, the Board may annul the enrolment. This course of action is provided for under Sections 11O and 11OA of the Education Act 1989.
Moving out the Home Zone after commencing attendance a Silverdale School.
Because only a student who lives in the home zone is entitled to enrol at Silverdale School and because the Board of Trustees has the statutory power to annul the enrolment in certain circumstances, all changes to the student’s usual place of residence when the school is open for instruction must be immediately notified to the School in writing. Where permission is being sought for the student to remain at the School application must be made in writing prior to the move being undertaken. Please note this also applies to all students who were enrolled before the home zone amendment and their siblings e.g. Stillwater / Pine Valley.
That the information contained in this enrolment is true and correct in every respect.
