Enrolment @ Clive

Parents of In Zone students who are likely to start during 2023/2024 should indicate to the school that this is the case – to help the Board plan for the 2023 and 2024 school years. Do so by phoning the office during school hours 06 870 0538.

Our Zone:

All students who live within the home zone described below shall be entitled to enrol at the school.  This zone is defined by a boundary line:

Proof of residence within the home zone will be required.

Out of Zone Enrolments 2024

The Board invites applications from those wishing to enrol their children at Clive School during Terms One and Two of the 2024 school year to submit an application. 

Those wishing to apply for an out of Zone child to start later in 2024 may also apply now for the process to be held later in the year (September/October). 

Enrolment is governed by an enrolment scheme, details of which are available on our website and from the school office, along with application forms (phone 06 870 0538 or admin@clive.school.nz)

The deadline for receipt of applications for out of zone children is Monday 18th September 2023.                                          

Parents of students in our zone should also let us know of students due to arrive at school as this helps us with our planning for the years ahead.

The Board has determined that THIRTY FIVE (35) places are to be available for out of zone children for the start of the 2024 school year. Details may be found on our website www.cliveschool.co.nz/enrolment/

If the number of out-of-zone applications exceeds places, students will be selected by ballot. If required this will be held on Tuesday 19th September. 

Parents will be informed of the outcome by Thursday 21st September 2023.

If you would like to book an appointment to visit our school we would love to show you what Clive has to offer: 06 870 0538

Clive School Out Of Zone Enrolment Application

Do you reside within the school Zone?

No, then ring the Clive School Office and initially speak with the Office Manager Jo, 06 8700 538.  As we are required to operate a School Enrolment Zone.

Yes, then you have an automatic right to attend Clive School.

Is your child nearly 5 years old (or has just turned 5)?

Yes, we recommend enrolling your child before they turn 5.  Please come in and collect an enrolment pack and make an appointment with the Principal.  If you have time, take a tour of the School.   School uniforms are sold through the NZ Uniforms Website or at their store located at 819 Heretaunga St West, Hastings. We do hold samples at school to try on for size. Whilst you visit, take the time to try these on your child.  Take away the School Student enrolment pack, complete it at home and bring it in with you either on the next visit or before.

Enrol your child early so they can be invited to attend a series of weekly school visits (Thursdays). This will allow for a gradual ‘getting to know process’ and lessen anxiety for both your child and you.  Starting is important, we aim for the transition into school to be as smooth as possible.

Is your child older than 5 years old?

If your child has already attended a school elsewhere in the country then it is important that they feel comfortable about starting at Clive School.   Their levels of anxiety and apprehension will be high as it is new.  The quicker we can set them at ease the better the transition and they can continue with their learning.

Ring the school office 06 8700538, make an appointment to see the Principal and start the process off.

This starts with an initial discussion about the Clive Community and School.  Take an informative tour of the school, visit your child’s classroom and be introduced briefly to the classroom teacher. We have found this process gives a sense of ‘I know who and I know where I am going on my first day’.

Take the opportunity to size their school uniform, then order online or in-store at NZ Uniforms.  Take with you the Clive School Student Enrolment Pack, complete it and return it either on your next visit or before.
