Enrolment Zone

Birkdale Primary School (1230)

Enrolment Scheme

Effective from (1 July, 2021)

The guidelines for development and operation of enrolment schemes are issued under section 11G (3) of the Education Act 1989 for the purpose of describing the basis on which the Secretary’s powers in relation to enrolment schemes will be exercised.

From the 1st July 2021 enrolment at BIrkdale Primary School is governed by a Ministry of Education approved enrolment scheme, which includes a zone that is set out below. A full copy of the enrolment scheme can be viewed below. The Education Act sets out the purposes of an enrolment scheme to ensure that the selection of applicants for enrolment at the school is fair and to ensure that the best use is made of existing networks of State schools.  Students living within the Birkdale Primary School zone have automatic right of entry under the scheme. Students living outside of the Birkdale Primary School zone will have another school that is reasonably convenient to their place of residence that they will be entitled to attend. You can find information about the location of other schools and their enrolment zones at

Home Zone

All students who live within the home zone described below and/or shown on the attached map shall be entitled to enrol at the school.
