    (2) The Board of a school may not employ other regular teachers whose employment generates a number of FTTEs greater than the number of FTTEs by which the school's total regular staffing allowance, at that time, is greater than the number of FTTEs generated by the employment at the school, at that time, of permanently appointed regular teachers.

    (3) The Board of a school may not make a permanent appointment of a regular teacher without the consent of the Secretary if the school's formula-generated staffing allowance based on its provisional rolls exceeds its formula-generated staffing allowance based on its October rolls, estimated under clause 10, by 1.0 FTTEs or more.

31 Suspension of clause 29(5) if 10% limit exceeded

    (2) A notice under subclause (1) applies from the date on which it is received by the Board until the date on which the number of regular teachers employed by the Board at the school during the year up to that date equals the number of FTTEs that the Board was entitled to employ at that school under clause 29(1) to (3) during that period.

    • (a) adding, to get the first result,—

    • (c) multiplying the second result by 0.72 to get the third result; and

    • (d) subtracting 0.77 from the third result to get the fourth result; and

    • (e) if the fourth result is not a whole number, correcting it to the nearest whole number.

35 Adjustment to calculation of limitation on employment involving salary units
  • (1) In relation to a school that is in receipt of a special education staffing allowance under clause 17, clause 34 must be applied by increasing the fourth result by adding the number of salary units generated by—

    • (a) adding the number of FTTEs of the school's special education staffing allowance to the number of FTTEs, if any, of the school's special education management allowance; and

    • (b) multiplying the resulting sum by 0.72; and

    • (c) if the resulting product is not a whole number, correcting it to the nearest whole number.

    (2) In relation to a school that has a tuakana-teina allowance under clause 21, clause 34 must be applied by increasing the fourth result by the number of salary units that the Secretary has, under clause 21, determined to be part of that allowance.

    (3) The increases provided for in subclauses (1) and (2) are, in relation to a primary school to which both of those subclauses apply, cumulative.

36 Limitation on grades for principals
  • (1) The Board of a school may not employ a principal at a grade higher than the grade specified in the first column of the Schedule opposite the roll range in which the school's principal grading roll lies.

    (2) The principal grading roll for a school is the greater of—

    • (a) the school's provisional rolls and provisional special education list, after any applicable weighting in accordance with subclause (7); and

    • (b) the school's confirmed rolls and confirmed special education list, after any applicable weighting in accordance with subclause (7).

    (3) A school's provisional rolls are the rolls estimated in accordance with clause 7.

    (4) A school's confirmed rolls are the rolls estimated by the Secretary under clause 10.

    (5) A school's provisional special education list is its actual special education list determined by the Secretary as at 1 July 2005.

    (6) A school's confirmed special education list is its special education list confirmed by the Secretary under clause 9.

    (7) For the purposes of determining the principal grading roll for 2006, the following weightings apply:

    • (a) 1 special education student with high needs is the equivalent of 3 students:

    • (b) 1 special education student with very high needs is the equivalent of 6 students.

    (8) For the purpose of determining the roll range as at 2006, the roll of any kura tuakana will be the sum of the number of students on the roll of the kura tuakana and the number of students on the rolls of any associated kura teina.

Explanatory note

This note is not part of the order, but is intended to indicate its general effect.

This order, which comes into force on 15 September 2005, prescribes limitations on the numbers of regular (ie, non-relieving) teachers who may be employed at state primary schools in 2006. It sets out how the limitations are calculated, and the circumstances in which, and conditions on which, the Secretary may grant exemptions from the limitations.

The order largely repeats the equivalent order for last year. The substantive changes are as follows:

  • the total regular staffing allowance provisions in clause 27 reflect the introduction of 2 new allowances, the classroom release time allowance (see clause 20) and the supplementary learning support teacher support allowance (see clause 24), as well as a change from the previous order's supplementary learning support teacher time allowance to the supplementary learning support time allowance (see clause 19) in this order:

  • a new exemption for supplementary learning support teachers (see clause 38) is available to a school's Board:

  • changes to the limitations on grades for principals (see clause 36) introduce the principal grading roll, which is based on the greater of a school's provisional and confirmed rolls and list:

  • the definition of Maori-medium student in clause 4 is no longer restricted to students who are Maori.
