James Cook School
Enrolment at James Cook School is governed by an enrolment scheme, details of which are available below, on the website Education Counts, and from the school office.
Proof of residence within the home zone will be required.
Each year applications for enrolment in the following year from in-zone students will be sought by a date which will be published in a daily or community newspaper circulating in the area served by the school. This will enable the school board to assess the number of places which can be made available to students who live outside the home zone.
Out of Zone Enrolments
Each year the board will determine the number of places which are likely to be available in the following year for the enrolment of students who live outside the home zone. The school board will publish this information by notice on the school website, and in a daily or community newspaper circulating in the area served by the school. The notice will indicate how applications are to be made and will specify a date by which all applications must be received.
Applications for enrolment will be processed in the following order of priority, according to legislation:
First Priority This priority category is not applicable to this school.
Second Priority will be given to applicants who are siblings of current students.
Third Priority will be given to applicants who are siblings of former students.
Fourth Priority will be given to any applicant who is a child of a former student of the school.
Fifth Priority will be given to any applicant who is either a child of an employee of the board of the school or a child of a member of the board of the school.
Sixth Priority will be given to all other applicants.
If there are more applicants in the second, third, fourth, fifth or sixth priority groups than there are places available, selection within the priority group will be by a ballot conducted in accordance with instructions issued by the Secretary under the Education and Training Act 2020. Parents will be informed of the date of any ballot by media suitable to the area served by the school.
Applicants seeking second or third priority status may be required to give proof of a sibling relationship.
