Enrolment Information

We invite you to contact our school office to discuss a possible enrolment, and to make an appointment to view our school facilities and to meet with one our leadership team.


Methven Primary is able to accept an enrolment for any child living within its school zone and has a limited number of places for out of zone children.

If at all possible, we would appreciate at least one weeks notification that you intend to enrol your child at Methven Primary School so that preparations can be made to receive your child. Notification can be made by phoning the school office (03 3028500), or completing a full enrolment below.

New entrants are encouraged to make several school visits before their 5th birthday to help make the transition from preschool to school as smooth, happy and positive as possible.

    • Contact the school office to confirm that we have your child’s contact details on our enrolment list
    • Three to four weeks before your child is due to start transitions visits a letter will be sent out with times and dates for these visits.
    • Visits are usually on a Friday, and there are three to four visits in total. Please contact the office by phone or email if these dates do not suit.
    • Twice a year we hold an information meeting for parents whose children are turning 5 soon. At this time you will have an opportunity to meet the principal, teachers and look around the learning environment.
