Enrolment in school
A student is entitled to enrol at the local school that the student is eligible to attend if their home is within that school’s local intake area. Parents may apply to enrol their child in the school of their choice. Acceptance is subject to the child being eligible to attend and the school can accommodate the child.
An enrolment cap for a school is established centrally, based on available permanent accommodation.
Demountable classrooms are not usually counted towards the enrolment cap.
Local Enrolment buffer
Within the enrolment cap, a number of enrolment places (the buffer) must be set aside for the enrolment of local students arriving throughout the year.
The size of the buffer will differ in each school based on historical data, enrolment fluctuations and on the number of families moving into or out of the area.
The size of the local enrolment buffer is set locally by the Principal and approved by the Director, Educational Leadership. It is reviewed annually and set in time for assessing applications for the following year’s enrolment intake.
Places in the local enrolment buffer are not to be offered to non-local students.
