Enrolment / Admissions

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

Due to the planned 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). A new Admission Policy will be approved with an annual admissions process for this intake group with applications for the coming school year being accepted by the school within a designated period the year before e.g. enrolment applications for children born between 1st September 2019 and 31st August 2020 will open in the autumn term 2023 (date to be confirmed).

Dalkey School Project NS will be consulting with the school community on the required changes to its enrolment/admissions policy before its adoption.

The current policy will apply for allocation of junior infant places until September 2023.  Further updates will be added to the website when available.

Current Policy

Places in the school are allocated according to the enrolment policy applicable to the year the child is to start in the school. The school maintains a pre-enrolment list and parents who wish to enter their child on the list must apply with a pre-enrolment form. On receipt of the completed form, the date of receipt in the school is registered and that date determines priority for places in the school. For children placed on the list under the 1 September 2012 sibling enrolment policy, the date of receipt is used in conjunction with criteria set out in that policy e.g. qualifying siblings. Please see the full Enrolment Policy on the ‘Policies’ page.

If the applicant child was born on or after 1 September 2018, use the online application service: Online Pre-Enrolment Application
If the applicant child was born on or before 31 August 2018, please download the paper application form: Download Pre-Enrolment Form
