NEW ENTRANT STUDENTS
It is essential that children are enrolled before their fifth birthday. Their birth certificate (or passport) must be available at the time of enrolment. Children starting school in NZ for the first time will also need to provide immunisation records. New entrants are given dates for transition visits which are held on Thursday from 9am – 11am and a parent or caregiver must attend with the student.
Windy Ridge School starts new 5 year olds at the start of each term, in cohort entry. Cohort entry involves a group of similarly aged new entrant students starting school together, rather than individually. Students would begin school on the term start date closest to their fifth birthday, rather than on their actual birthday. Cohort entry helps children to transition more positively into school, build relationships with their classmates and supports a smoother entry to school life.
FAMILIES NEW TO NZ
New residents to New Zealand must provide passports with current residency, or work permits.
