Central Applications Procedures Document

Operating Details

Enrolment is the jurisdiction of the schools’ Boards of Management. The final decision on the offer of a place rests with the Board of Management. Applications are lodged in the Parish Office, Station Road, Newbridge, Co. Kildare. The Central Applications Committee (CAC) meets every three weeks and considers the list of applications that has been received by the Parish Office since the previous meeting. There will be a closing date for junior infant applications generally in December prior to the year of applications. The committee merely acts as a conduit to distribute the application forms thus saving parents/guardians the need to visit individual schools seeking a school placement.
