When do I start school?

Most children start school at 5 although in New Zealand you do not legally have to start school until you are 6.

When should I be enrolled at school?

New Entrants (5-6yrs) - For school planning it is easiest (and best for your child) if you enrol at least one year before starting school although you do not have to pre enrol at all.

Enrolling

To enrol at Barton Rural School, please visit the school office for an enrolment form and to talk to the Principal - Kate Coulter (kate@bartonrural.school.nz).
