PLEASE NOTE THAT WE WILL START ACCEPTING ENROLMENTS FROM THURSDAY 8TH OCTOBER 2020
In the current climate of school closures , we have amended our enrolment policy to allow parents to apply for enrolment online. Below you will find a link which will allow you to apply to the LCES for your child for school year 2021/2022.
What is the Lucan Common Enrolment System (LCES) Adamstown Castle, Esker, Griffeen and Lucan East Educate Together Schools are involved in the Lucan Common Enrolment System. When a parent/guardian makes an application to one of the schools they are applying to a centralised system. Children are assigned to one of the four schools based on specific criteria. The primary aim of the system is to promote inclusive local schools, to improve traffic management and mobility in Lucan and to encourage strong, integrated local communities.
How do I put my child’s name down for the Lucan Common Enrolment system? Fill out the pre-enrolment form, available from the schools’ websites. When you are pre-enrolling your child, please do so online. Please scan and attach the following documents:
Completed application form
Child’s birth certificate
Proof of address: TWO current utility bills dated within two months of the application.
Important points to note:
Application forms for Junior Infants will only be available in each school from 8thOctober of the year prior to the year of entry.

Please note that Lucan Educate Together National School in Bewley Way, has a separate enrolment policy and if you wish to apply to that school, you need to make a separate application there. Due to the close proximity of Lucan East ETNS and Griffeen Valley ETNS one GPS reference point (being the centre point of the round about between the two schools) is used to allocate places randomly between these two schools.
Free Early Childhood Care and Education Scheme
The Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) Scheme provides early childhood care and education for children of pre-school age. The scheme is offered in early years settings (pre-schools, Montessori’s, creches, playgroups) for 3 hours a day, 5 days a week, 38 weeks of the year. All children are entitled to 2 full academic years on the ECCE scheme. Children are eligible to start the ECCE scheme in the September of the year that they turn 3 years old. For example, a child turning 3 years old in 2019 can be registered on the ECCE scheme in September 2019.
This free scheme for children between the ages of 3 and 5 helps prepare them for primary school.
