Verran Primary School welcomes new enrolments. We encourage families to enrol children as early as possible to ensure we can organise classes and staffing accordingly. For new entrants, enrolments may be made immediately prior to the child's fifth birthday, but no child may begin classes until he/she is 5 years old. A birth certificate and immunisation certificate must be sighted at the enrolment.
Please see below for our online enrolment form or alternatively pick one up from the school office . If you would like to discuss your enrolment or to organise a school tour please contact us here. Arrangements will be made for up to 2 pre-school visits which will allow children and parents to experience different aspects of the classroom programme before starting school.

Out of Zone Enrolments
Each year the Board of Trustees will determine the number of places which are likely to be available in the following year for the enrolment of students who live outside the home zone. The Board will publish this information by notice in a daily or community newspaper circulating in the local area. The notice will indicate how applications are to be made and will specify a date by which all applications must be received.
Applications for enrolment will be processed in the following order of priority:
First Priority: This priority is not applicable as the school does not run a special programme approved by the Secretary for Education
Second Priority: Will be given to applicants who are siblings of current students
Third Priority: Will be given to applicants who are siblings of former students
Fourth Priority: Will be given to any applicant who is a child of a former student of the school
Fifth Priority: Will be given to applicants who are children of board employees
Sixth Priority: Will be given to all other applicants
If there are more applicants in the second, third, fourth or fifth priority groups than there are places available, selection within the priority group will be by a ballot conducted in accordance with the instructions by the Secretary under Section 11G(1) of the Education Act 1989. Parents will be informed of the date of any ballot by notice in a daily or community newspaper circulating in the area served by the school.
Applicants seeking second or third priority status may be required to give proof of a sibling relationship.
