Government approves drafting of Admissions to Schools Bill

Posted March 25th, 2014

Today the Government approved the drafting of the Education (Admissions to Schools) Bill 2014. This legislation will reform the school admission process at primary and secondary level.

The majority of schools – 80% – are able to admit all  pupils who apply for enrolment and the changes envisaged in the Bill will have little affect here.

But for the 20% of schools that are currently over-subscribed, and the parents who find themselves grappling with this issue, the reforms will play an important role.
