Enrolment Policy

The Board is bound by the Department of Education and Skills' Rules for National Schools which provides that pupils may only be enrolled from the age of 4 years and upwards, though compulsory attendance does not apply until the age of 6 years. In the event of applications for enrolment exceeding the number of places available, the following decision-making process will apply:
  1. Catholic children living in the parish and brothers and sisters of pupils in the school
  2. Catholic children living outside the parish who do not have a Catholic school in their own parish
  3. Other children living in the parish
  4. Other children living outside the parish
If the applications within categories exceed the number of places available, older children will have precedence.
