To all parents

An especially warm welcome to new parents to our school.

At Tauranga Primary School we are dedicated to providing a quality education for each child. We believe that the education of your child involves three main participants:

- the family
- the school
- the learner

All participants need to contribute to the overall programme for the benefit of that child.

For those of you wishing to become involved in the school we have a School Support Group (Friends of the School) whose job it is to FUNraise and grow our TPS community, in addition, they also fundraise, organise and help out at school events.

Enrolment Information

Early enrolment of your child is essential for accurate future planning for the school roll.

Our funding is based on projected rolls confirmed later by actual attendance.  Staffing is based on the number of children attending and a third of the projected new entrant intake from July to December.

Our school subject to an enrolment zone (zone map below).  Our zone is to protect the school from over-crowding situations.  If you are in-zone then your children have right of acceptance.  Out-of-zone enrolments will need to go to a ballot and are subject to classroom availability (refer enrolment scheme below).  Proof of address is a requirement of entry.

The Tauranga Primary School enrolment form can be downloaded below.   Verification of age needs to be presented at school, either a birth certificate or passport are acceptable forms of identification.  A copy of these documents is required along with the filled out enrolment form.  In addition, verfication of address is required prior to enrolment.

Preschoolers are invited to attend their new class on pre-school visits prior to beginning school.  This will be co-ordinated with families in the enrolment process.
