Forms & Process

Welcome to Oteha Valley School. We understand it’s a big decision choosing where to start your child’s educational journey so we’re here to make it a positive experience.

Oteha Valley School is open to any child living within our home zone (who meets the criteria of a domestic student) as governed by the Ministry of Education approved enrolment scheme. A copy of the enrolment scheme is available from the school office. 

What is the enrolment process?

When your child turns four please complete a pre-enrolment form, which you can download here. While this doesn’t commit you to enrolling your child, it enables us to plan ahead.

Around six weeks before your child turns five, our teacher in charge of New Entrant liaison, Mrs Kellie Gregory, will contact you to organise two visits to the school before your child starts. On the first visit, we invite both you and your child for the morning to familiarise yourselves with the classroom. On the second visit we ask you to drop your child off at the classroom and pick them up later on.

You will need to complete an enrolment form before your child is officially enrolled and eligible to start. Children can start on the day they turn five.

New to the area?

If you are new to Auckland’s North Shore and your child has already attended another school (either in New Zealand or overseas) please contact the office to arrange a time for you and your child to meet with the principal, who can answer any questions you have. Please also bring along proof that you live in our home zone (listed above).
