In January 2020 the Department announced that the Minister signed the statutory instrument commencing the relevant sections of the Education (Admission to Schools) Act 2018 to come into effect on 1st February 2020 – https://www.education.ie/en/Press-Events/Press-Releases/2020-press-releases/20-01-15.html

From February 2020 every recognised school will be required to draft a new school admission policy in accordance with the act’s requirements following consultation with the patron, the staff of the school and parents of current pupils.

There will be no changes to the school’s admissions procedures for the school year 2020-21, as we will still be operating under the current policy.

The BOM of Shellybanks ETNS is currently reviewing its Enrolment Policy and will upload the new policy when it is complete.
