Enrolment schemes

71 Purpose and principles


The purpose of the enrolment scheme of a State school is—


to avoid overcrowding, or the likelihood of overcrowding, at the school; and


to ensure that the selection of applicants for enrolment at the school is carried out in a fair and transparent manner; and


to enable the Secretary to make the best use of existing networks of State schools.


In achieving its purpose, the enrolment scheme of every State school must, as far as possible, ensure that—


the scheme does not exclude local students; and


no more students are excluded from the school than is necessary to avoid overcrowding at the school.
