Welcome to Kingsford School. We are excited that you are choosing Kingsford to start or continue your child’s learning journey. Before you come down to enrol your child, please read the following information to ensure the enrolment process goes smoothly.

Please be aware that if you live outside of the Kingsford School zone, you will be required to write a letter to the board of trustees regarding your wish to enrol your child at Kingsford. See our zone below:

Children can be enrolled at any time but will not be able to start school until the day following the enrolment. You will need to bring your child to school by 8.30 am to ensure we can escort you to the class, and there is time for you to settle your child in before the day begins.

When you come to school to enrol your child, please bring one of the following items:

  • Your child’s birth certificate
  • Your child’s valid passport – this is so we can confirm they are eligible to enrol if they were not born in New Zealand, Australia, the Cook Islands, Niue, or Tokelau
  • The passport of either parent – this is to confirm that your child is able to enrol in a New Zealand school
  • If your child is a new entrant, please bring their immunisation certificate (if they have one).

We also need to know whether your child has had any preschool education and also which iwi your child belongs to, if applicable. If you have any questions about the enrolment process, please do not hesitate to contact our school office on (09) 275 9447.

We look forward to you and your child joining the Kingsford Whanau.
