grades allocated to pupils in the current school year and
the previous two school years are:
2003/2004 School Year
2002/2003 School Year
2001/2002 School Year
The next step in the procedure is the completion of the Transfer
Form. At the discussion with the Principal of the Primary
School parents will be asked to state their preferences, drawing
on information already provided by the Department of Education
and Education and Library Boards and the information found
within the prospectuses of post primary schools. Many parents
have already attended Open Days/Nights.
As in previous years parents should be careful to provide
all information on the Transfer Form which is relevant to
their preferred schools. The admissions criteria of the schools
concerned should be carefully studied to ensure that no information
such as ‘eldest child in family’ or ‘father/mother
attended the school’ is omitted. Where it is appropriate,
information should be given about special circumstances and
documentary evidence attached to the Transfer Form.
Parents should also ensure that their stated preferences are
the most appropriate for the child’s interests as it
may not be possible to gain admission to another preferred
school should they wish to change their choices from those
originally indicated on the Transfer Form.
Information about the Transfer Procedure itself including
the completion of the Transfer Form is available from the
Board’s Pupil and Parent Unit (028) 3751 2406.
