Out of zone enrolments

Each term the Board of Trustees will determine the number of places which are likely to be available in the following term for the enrolment of students who live outside the home zone (if any). 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 state 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:

The order of priority in which applicants who live outside a school’s home zone are to be offered places at the school is as follows:

  • first priority This priority category does not apply at this school because the school does not run a special programme approved by the Secretary. (This category does not apply to Wigram Primary School).

 

  • 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 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.

Addresses on both sides of boundary roads are considered in-zone unless specified otherwise.

Each year, applications for enrolment in the following year from in-zone students will be sought by a date that 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 that can be made available to students who live outside the home zone.

Transitional arrangements

For families of currently enrolled students living in a defined area who become “out of zone” as a result of this amendment to the scheme.

The following addresses* shall be deemed to be “in-zone”, but only for as long as they contain children who, at the time of enrolment, are the siblings of currently enrolled students who were enrolled at that address on 1 January 2021.

            *See appendix available on request at the school office

NB This is a very tightly defined concession. It does not apply to:

a          children of parents who move in to any of these addresses after the effective date of the amended enrolment scheme boundary; and

b          children of parents currently living at one of the addresses who move out of the address after the effective date of the amended enrolment scheme boundary.

Section 11E of the Education Act 1989 states that “a state school’s home zone must be defined by geographic boundaries, and must be described in such a way that any given address is either within or outside the home zone.” The list above defines a location as “in-zone” unless dictated otherwise by the exceptions outlined in a and b above.

Out of Zone Enrolments

Each year the Board of Trustees 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 enrolments will be processed in the following order of priority:

  • First priority is not applicable as the school does not operate a Special Programme.
  • Second priority must be given to applicants who are siblings of current students.
  • Third priority must be given to applicants who are siblings of former students.
  • 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 will be by ballot conducted in accordance with instructions by the Secretary, under Section 11G (1) on 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.
