Enrolment of 6th Class Pupils in Post-Primary School for September, 2021

September 29, 2020



Dear parents,


I am writing to you in relation to our 6th class pupils who will enroll in post-primary school in September, 2021.


There have been significant changes to how post-primary schools offer school places. These schools have a very short window for applications, and parents are urged to be proactive in making sure they apply for school places on time.


The board of management is anxious to ensure that parents are made aware of the options open to them for enrolling their children in post-primary. You are asked to read this notice carefully.




Post-primary schools in the area


In our catchment area, there are three post-primary schools in operation:


Coláiste Pobail Setanta, Phibblestown


Hansfield Educate Together Secondary School


Ériu Community College, (based in temporary accommodation in Luttrellstown)





Enrolment for places opens this week


This week, each school will begin accepting applications from our current 6th class pupils for enrolment in their schools for the 2020/21 school-year.


It is very important that parents make themselves fully aware of the enrolment process for each school. These conditions are set out in each school’s enrolment policy, with further information on the schools’ websites.

Completion of an enrolment form alone does not guarantee your child a place in their school of choice


Parents are reminded that completion of an enrolment form does not guarantee your child a place in a school. If schools are over-subscribed, they will not be able to offer places to everyone who has applied.


If there are more pupils applying for a place in the school than the school has available, the school will offer places to students in accordance with the provisions of that school’s enrolment policy.


The enrolment policy sets out the criteria by which places will be offered in the event of the school being over-subscribed. Parents are strongly advised to read the enrolment policy for their school of choice in order to be clear of how school places are offered by that school.


Offers of school places for September 2021 will made in in accordance with the individual school enrolment policy.



N.B. Parents should consider what alternatives are open to them, if their child does not get a place in their preferred school.





Make sure that you are well informed when making the important decision on which school to pick for your child


Choosing a post-primary school for your child is a very important step. As schools differ in how they allocate places, parents are strongly advised to read their enrolment policies carefully so that they can make an informed decision.


If you require any further information or assistance, please let me know.
