Free uniforms and stationery are on offer to those who enrol at a new charter school.

Millions of dollars will be spent on new charter or “partnership” schools despite hundreds of spare places at surrounding state options.

However, the Government says the schools, which open next year, will offer parents a new model of education, and population growth means impact on existing schools will be minimal.

That has not stopped disquiet from one principal who says it is unfair to expect lower decile schools to compete with charter schools offering free uniforms, stationery and no donations.

Four new partnership schools will open next year, all in Auckland and Whangarei, joining the first five that were established this year.

Documents released yesterday by the Ministry of Education include information on how it expects the new schools’ neighbours to be affected.
