What is required for to enrol my child as a student at Marshall Laing Primary School?

An enrolment form must be completed for each new child to our school. The enrolment form requires documentation such as a birth certificate or passport, proof of NZ residence/visa (where applicable) and immunisation forms. Please note that we cannot enrol a student without proof of NZ residency through a birth certificate or passport.

Documentation required:

  • Your child’s Birth Certificate or NZ Passport (if your child was not born in NZ their passport is required)

  • Proof of NZ residence/visa (where applicable)

  • Parent’s Passport (if the child has a parent who was not born in NZ and does not speak English as their first language, we must photocopy the parent’s passport for ESOL funding)

  • Immunisation record (Plunket book or Medical History)


You will also need to provide two copies of proof of residence of a property within the home zone with the name of a parent or legal guardian that also includes an address within the home zone. These need to be current, covering the date of enrolment.

Proof of residency examples:

  • Phone account

We welcome you to enrol your child at our school. We accept children from Year 1 to Year 6, aged 5 years to 11 years old. Please visit the school office to get an enrolment pack and talk to the Principal or Deputy Principal.


If you are planning to enrol your five year old, we encourage you to enrol them at least six weeks before their fifth birthday. We plan at least two school visits for children who are going to start in the new entrants class, so they can get familiar with their classroom and teacher before they start school.
