Out of Zone Enrolments
Each year the Board will determine the number of places, which are likely to be available for students who live outside the home zone. The Board will publish this information 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 the date by which all applications must be received.
Applications are now being invited for out of zone students who are eligible for enrolment who meet the following criteria;
- 9 out of zone places for new entrants whose 5th birthday falls after 12th April
- 8 places for Year 1 students whose 5th birthday falls before the 13th April
Currently there are no available out of zone places for Years 2 to 6.
The deadline for receipt of applications for out of zone places is 24th October, 2023.
If a ballot for out of zone places is required, it will be held on 27th October, 2023. Parents will be informed of the outcome of the ballot within three school days of the ballot being held.
If you live in the home zone and have not yet signalled your intention to enrol your child later this year, please contact the school immediately to assist us to plan appropriately.
Please send all enrolment inquiries to :firstname.lastname@example.org
The Board of Trustees will also hold additional ballots in Term 2 and Term 3 to enable out of zone children to continue to enrol in 2024, notices will be advertised on the website in Term 1 and Term 2, 2024.
Applications for enrolment will be processed in the following order of priority:
First Priority: Special programmes (This priority category is not applicable because the school does not run a special programme approved by the Secretary).
Second Priority: Siblings of current students.
Third Priority: Siblings of former students.
Fourth Priority: Children of Board employees.
Fifth Priority: 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.
