Decile ReviewEach year, schools can apply for a decile review if they believe there has been a significant change in the catchment area or socio-economic circumstances of students since the original assessment was made. Deciles for all state and state-integrated schools will be recalculated in 2019 as a result of information from the 2018 Census.
To apply for a decile review, schools need to supply information which is outlined in the application pack.
The application information, forms and templates for use can be downloaded from below.
applications must be received before 5.00pm Monday 24 September 2018.
What happens after a review
The Ministry will inform you of the outcome of your decile review before the end of the school year.
If your application is successful, your new decile rating will take effect at the beginning of the next school year. A revised entitlement notice will be sent with your January instalment notice.
If your application is not successful, your school will not be disadvantaged because of the review. Deciles cannot increase as the result of a decile review. Your school's decile will simply remain as it is.
