Intention to Enrol – Out of Zone
If you are living outside of the enrolment zone, you may submit an ‘Intention to enrol – Out of Zone’. This does not ensure enrolment but signals your interest in a placement for your child. If there are spaces available you will be asked to fill out an enrolment form. If we are unable to offer your child a placement you will be notified by letter or email.
Note to parent/caregiver: If you are living outside of the school’s zone, it is only possible to secure a place at the school if there is a vacancy. The reason for setting up the enrolment zone is to ensure that our class sizes do not become too large and over-crowded. Children living outside the zone may obtain a place through a ballot system.
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 will be given to applicants who are siblings of current students.
Third Priority will be given to applicants who are siblings of former students.
Fourth Priority will be given to an applicant who is a child of a former student
Fifth Priority will be given to applicants who are children of board employees.
Sixth Priority will be given to all other applicants.
If there are more applicants in the second, third, fourth, or fifth priority groups than there are places available, selection within the priority group will be by a 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.
Applicants seeking second or third priority status may be required to give proof of a sibling relationship.
You must complete and submit the form below.
You will be advised in writing the outcome of the ballot.
