Proof of residence within the home zone will be required. 

Each year, applications for enrolment in the following year from in-zone students will be sought by a date which will be published in a daily or community newspaper circulating in the area served by the school.  This will enable the board to assess the number of places which can be made available to students who live outside the home zone. 

 

Out of zone enrolments

Each year the board will determine the number of places which are likely to be available in the following year for the enrolment of students who live outside the home zone.  The board will publish this information by notice in a daily or community newspaper circulating in the area served by the school.  The notice will indicate how applications are to be made and will specify a date by which all applications must be received.

Applications for enrolment will be processed in the following order of priority:

First Priority         (This priority category is not applicable at this school because the school does not run a special programme                 approved by the Secretary)

Second Priority     must be given to any applicant who is the sibling of a current student of the school.

Third Priority        must be given to any student who is the sibling of a former student of the school.

Fourth Priority      must be given to any applicant who is a child of a former student of the school.

Fifth Priority         must be given to any applicant who is either a child of an employee of the board of the school, or a child of a            member of the board of the school.

Sixth Priority        must be given to all other applicants.

 

If there are more applicants in the second, third, fourth, fifth or sixth priority groups than there are places available, selection within the priority group must be by ballot conducted in accordance with instructions issued by the Secretary under Section 11G(1) of the Education Act 1989.  Parents will be informed of the date of any ballot by notice in a daily or community newspaper circulating in the area served by the school.
