The Deputy will be aware that there are seven primary schools, of varying patronage, servicing the Greystones/Delgany area. The question of enrolment in individual schools, including the schools in Greystones/Delgany, is the responsibility of the managerial authority of these schools.

For the Deputy's information, the following table sets out the level of junior infant intake for each of the seven schools from the period 2008 - 2013. The table also indicates the projected intake at junior infant level in the schools for September 2014. The actual number of enrolment applicants in the schools for 2014 is retained by the schools. My Department is currently engaging with schools in the area in the context of enrolment demand in September 2014.
