This is important, in order to protect the interests of the children concerned and their families, and to ensure that the State can make plans to provide for appropriate education for children with special educational needs.

Lucan Community College Consultation on Catchment Area for Admissions Policy
Due to current high number of applicants to the college, we are conducting a review of our catchment area in order to reduce the number of applicants in Category B and therefore increase the likelihood of Category B applicants (first in family, attending a priority primary school and living within our defined catchment area) gaining a place in Lucan Community College.
We would like to gather your feedback on this matter and would appreciate it if you could complete the following short questionnaire:
Lucan Community College Consultation Questionnaire on Catchment Area
The questionnaire will close next Friday 2nd December 2022.
Thank you in advance.
