Please note the following important excerpt from the school’s enrolment policy.
1. Parents seeking to enrol their child(ren) in St Patrick’s NS, Lurgybrack are requested to return a completed Enrolment Application Form (available in the office or at http://lurgybrackns.com/school-policies-2/enrolment-form-junior-infants/ or http://lurgybrackns.com/school-policies-2/enrolment-form-other-classes/ ). A copy of the child’s Birth Certificate and Baptismal Certificate must be returned with all completed Enrolment Application Forms.
Applications received before the Date of Enrolment will be treated the same as enrolments received on the actual enrolment day.
2. The names of children for whom Enrolment Application forms have been returned will be placed on a class waiting list.
3. In the event of the number of children seeking enrolment exceeding the number of places available the following criteria will be used to prioritise children for enrolment:
a) Pupils refused admission the previous year.
b) Brothers & Sisters of children already enrolled.
c) Children living within the school catchment area.
d) Children living within the parish of Aughaninshin.
e) Children whose home address is closest to the school (as measured by a straight line on an OS map).
Should the number of applicants in any of these categories exceed the number of places available, priority will be given to children by age.
