Admissions Ethos

Our school will endeavour to educate our students so that as emerging adults they can participate fully in community and family life, work and leisure.

The Board of Management of C.B.S. Ennistymon while formulating this policy has shown due regard to the provisions of the Education Act 1998, The Education Welfare Act 2000, the important role played by the patrons of our school in its daily life and the religious and educational philosophy of the Christian Brothers.

Having due regard to the above the Board through its Admissions Policy supports the principles of:

  • Inclusiveness, particularly in relation to the enrolment of pupils with special needs and disadvantage, subject to adequate resources being available to the school.
  • Equality of access and participation in the school.
  • Parental choice, in relation to enrolments while at the same time having due regard to the characteristic spirit of the school
  • Respect for diversity of traditions, values, languages and ways of life in society.
