ENROLLING NOW FOR 2019
Are you thinking of enrolling? then call into the office for your enrolment pack.
We do currently have spaces for Non-Peference children (Children without a Catholic connection)
St Francis of Assisi is the patron saint of our school.
Preferential status means having a connection with the Catholic Church. Catholic parents who wish to enrol their child at St Francis must first consult with the Parish Priest who has the responsibility for school enrolments. (Contact phone number 07 868 6169) Father will determine whether your child is regarded as a preferential pupil or not. There is a set criteria which Father must follow when determining this.
Criteria for Preference of enrolment in Integrated Catholic Schools.
Currently it is a legal obligation for St Francis School to have 90% of our pupils as preferential pupils.
Non Preferential Enrolments
10% of our maximum roll (120) are non-preference. Enquiries regarding non-preference enrolments must be directed to the Principal. If this roll is full there is a waiting list to enter the school via the non-preference enrolment list and parents/guardians are encouraged to contact the school as early as possible if they wish to enrol their non-Catholic child at St Francis.
New Entrant Enrolments
We encourage parents and children to visit the school prior to enrolment, this can be arranged by contacting the Principal via the school office. Upon enrolment at St Francis School a number of official forms must be produced. These include your child's birth certificate, immunisation certificate, and the preference card obtained from the Parish Priest (if a preference enrolment).
