Enrolment policy

PASS will consider all students who apply for entry, regardless of background or ability. If oversubscribed, we will conduct a ballot for available places with priority given to:

  1. Applicants who are siblings of current students
  2. Applicants who are siblings of former students
  3. All other applicants

Ballot process

If there are more applicants than there are places available, we will conduct a ballot in accordance with the Education Act 1989. If two or more siblings apply for places at the school at the same time, the applications of those siblings are dealt with as a single application for the purposes of the ballot.

Notification will be sent out to all parents/fanau who will be affected by the ballot process. Notification of the ballot results will be made in writing and fanau advised at the earliest opportunity.

PASS will maintain a waiting list and fanau who were unsuccessful with the ballot will be invited to be included on the waiting list. The waiting list will be regularly reviewed and fanau advised if a place becomes available for their child.
