(1)

The board of a State school that has an enrolment scheme may, subject to subsection (4), annul the enrolment of a student if the board believes on reasonable grounds that the student’s enrolment or pre-enrolment form falsely claimed, for the purpose of securing enrolment, that—

(a)

the student was living in the school’s home zone when the student enrolled at the school; or

(b)

the student was entitled to a particular priority in the ballot for places (for example, by falsely claiming the applicant to be the sibling (as defined in section 11F(3)) of an existing student).

(1A)

The board of a State school that has an enrolment scheme may, subject to subsection (4), annul the enrolment of a student if, following a review under section 11OA, the board determines that the student has used a temporary residence for the purpose of gaining enrolment at the school.

The address given in a student’s pre-enrolment form as the address where the student lives will be taken to be the address at which the student is living on enrolment, unless the board is notified otherwise.

A board that annuls the enrolment of a student must immediately—

(a)

advise the student’s parents, in writing, of the date of annulment and the date on which it takes effect; and
