Enrolling at Nayland Primary 

We are a moderate sized primary school of 400 students. We strive to have a close "family feeling" within the school. We want our students to feel secure and happy at school and our parents to quickly become part of the school community, feeling as much at home here as the children do.

As a zoned school we only take enrolments for families living within our zone. Please see zoning information below. We do run an out of zone ballot each year if there are spaces available for the following year. 

At Nayland Primary we run a 'dual' cohort entry programme for children starting school for the first time. If your child's birthday falls between weeks 6 & 10 (or during the holidays), your child will start school on day one of the next term. If your child's birthday in in weeks 1-5, they will start school on Monday of week 6.

We are currently not taking international students.
