Find below information in relation to admissions and enrolments

The Junior Infants class at DSPNS tends to be oversubscribed. When submitting late applications, please be aware your child’s name will be added to the end of a list of approximately 150+ applicants. Refer to section 7 of our Admissions Policy

Preparation for changes to enrolment policy as required by Admissions Act 2018

Due to the commencement of the Education (Admission to Schools) Act, 2018, Dalkey School Project NS will not accept pre-enrolment application forms for September 2024 (and following years).

The existing policy (Enrolment Policy 2018) will apply for allocation of junior infant places until September 2023. Further updates will be added to the website when available.

Due to the Minister for Education and Skills signing a Commencement Order in respect of the Education (Admission to Schools) Act, no further applications/pre-enrolment forms can be accepted after 31 January 2020.

Pre-enrolments confirmed in writing to an applicant that their child has been placed on a list for the purpose of allocating school places for the 2021/2022 school year or subsequent years before 1 February 2020, remain valid and the Board of Management will apply selection criteria based on our existing admissions policy (Enrolment Policy 2018). Such applications or pre-enrolment lists will cease to exist five years from the commencement of section 62 – the 31st January 2025 – as set out in the Act.
