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 2022/2023 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. 2021/2022, please contact the school at info@letns.org.
