Admissions Process for 2023/2024 School Year

Under the Education (Admission to Schools) Act, 2018 all schools must implement a new Admissions Policy for the 2023/2024 school year, thus replacing their previous enrolment policies. In accordance with the provisions of this Act Lucan Educate Together N.S. on 27th September 2022 publishes its:

Admissions Policy 2023/24 HERE

Annual Admissions Notice 2023/24  HERE

These notices are also available in hard copy on request from the school office and can be obtained by emailing: info@letns.org  or writing to: Lucan Educate Together NS, Mount Bellew Way, Lucan, Co. Dublin.

Parents / guardians wishing to submit applications are advised to read both the Admissions Policy and the Admissions Notice in advance of submitting an application.

Junior Infants 2023/2024 – applications being accepted from 3rd October to 24th October 2022.  Applications received after that date are treated as late applications under the term of the school’s Admission Policy.  

  • If you wish to make application for a Junior Infant place for the 2023/2024 school year please download the relevant form, HERE and save it to your PC or laptop.
  • Complete the downloaded form with all the relevant information.
  • Save the completed form with your child’s name in the title to your PC or laptop
  • Make a scan or take a photo of your child’s birth certificate
  • Email the completed application form and scan/photo of your child’s birth certificate to Enrolments@LETNS.org
  • Applications will not be considered valid and will not be accepted without a scan/photograph of your child’s birth certificate

Parents/Guardians should note that in accordance with the Education (Admissions to School) Act 2018 and in line with Section 14 of the Lucan Educate Together Admissions Policy that an offer of admission may not be made or may be withdrawn if it is established that information contained in the application is false or misleading.

Twins:  please note that it is our practice to place twins in separate classes, for the following reasons:

  • This practice is based on our experience as school staff and the experience of parents and twin children who have passed through the school.
  • Placing twins in separate classes best supports children as unique individuals and it benefits the children in terms of their emotional, personal and social development and is consistent with our ethos of child-centredness.
  • Engaging with different teachers and classmates and developing individual circles of friends is an enriching experience for both the children and the parents.
  • We have always found that as children grow older, it becomes even more important to recognise and nurture a sense of self and also to enable children to have separate experiences throughout the school day.
  • Our teachers work closely together at each class level so that plans, homework, activities, trips are very similar in both classes.

Please Note

  • If you made an application under the previous enrolment policy and your child’s name is on our pre-enrolment list for 2022/2023 you do not need to make an application under the Admissions Policy as your child’s application will be considered ahead of applications under the new Admissions Policy (in line with provisions of the Act).
  • Under the Admissions Policy and Annual Admissions Notice we are accepting enrolments for the 2023/2024 school year only
  • Making an enrolment application does not automatically mean that a place is allocated to your child.  All places will be offered in accordance with the school’s Admissions Policy & Annual Admissions Notice.  Please see the Department of Education and Skills website for further information on the school admissions appeals process HERE.

Please note if you are enquiring about a place in the school for the current school year, i.e. 2022/2023, you should contact the school at enrolments@letns.org.

All queries regarding this Admissions Policy should be emailed to enrolments@LETNS.org
