The Feeder Zone is the area from which a school accepts its core intake.

  • The Feeder Zone determination promotes the Community Ownership of schools, Accessibility of learners to schools, the safety of learners, as well as, the economic benefit to parents.
  • To give effect to the Feeder Zone provision, the Gauteng Department of Education embarked on a broad consultative process with various stakeholders. The conceptualisation of the entire Feeder Zone process was a very complex process that was based on research, policy, legal analysis and the benchmarking of international best practice.
  • The national policy that guides the feeder Zones is the Admissions Policy for Ordinary Public Schools (Government Notice 2432 in Government Gazette 19377 of 19 October 1998 made in terms of the National Education Policy Act, 1996 (Act No. 27 of 1996) provides for school zoning.
  • The feeder zone determination is guided by the Principles and Criteria in the “GDE Policy for the Delimitation of Feeder Zones for Schools.” Schools that are excluded from the feeder zone determination comprise of special schools and focus schools because their intake cannot be limited to a feeder zone. Data collected in relation to the Principles and Criteria, the “As is” feeder zones (schools unofficial feeder zone) was used to determine feeder zones. The “As Is” formed the basis of consultation with schools. A proposed feeder zone is communicated to schools with a covering letter that gives schools a period of 30 days to indicate whether they agree or disagree. In cases where schools disagreed, they were required to motivate with a map for consideration through correspondence signed off by the Principal and Chairperson.
    After considering the representation from the school the recommendation from the school may be upheld or rejected on the basis of which they will receive a written response. The final feeder zone will be communicated through the promulgation of a Notice.
  • Feeder Zones will be reviewed every three years or sooner as a result of changes in the learner population and population dynamics in the school feeder zone
