ENROLMENT APPLICATION INFORMATION.

An Enrolment Application ‘Open Day’ for all applications to Kilmacrennan N.S. for the 2015-’16 Schoolyear will be held on Wednesday, 28th January 2015. The school community is informed of the dates, time and venue of the Open Day through the
- Parish newsletter
- Informing pupils in the school
- Notice in the Donegal News and Tírconaill Tribune newspapers.
- Notice on the school website.

Please note that an application for enrolment does not guarantee a place for each child.

The closing date for Enrolment Applications for the 2016-’17 schoolyear is February 17th, 2016.

Please note that applications received prior to the application deadline do not assume priority over applications received by the closing date, but will be assessed by the criteria of the Enrolment Policy.

The Board of Management will notify all applicants of their decision during the month of March.

Should the number of applicants exceed the number of places, priority will be given to the oldest children in the priority categories identified in the School Enrolment Policy. The Enrolment Policy, which includes these categories, is available from the School Principal.

Applications received after the application date, but before April 30th,  will be placed on a Criteria One waiting list, or a waiting list for Criteria A-E applicants. Places, if available, will be offered in order of age within these categories. Successful applicants will be informed by May 30th.  A further application process may follow, subject to available places, as decided by the Board of Management.

If transferring from another school, it is school policy that the Principal Teacher will make contact with the Principal of that school, seeking pupil progress reports, and other information, prior to the offering of a place.

The BOM reserves the right to refuse enrolment in exceptional circumstances if, in the opinion of the BOM, there is evidence of an unacceptable risk to other pupils, school staff or school property.

Where a Board of Management refuses to enrol a student in a school, the parents have a statutory entitlement under Section 29 of the Education Act to appeal that decision to the Secretary General of the Dept of Education and Skills.

Intake numbers may fluctuate from year to year, depending on whole school enrolment.

Please contact the School Principal for enrolment applications/queries/information.
