INTRODUCTION TO MAGH ENE COLLEGE

Our Mission Statement

We pride ourselves on the personal and individual attention given to each student and value the partnership with parents in achieving this goal.

About us….

Our name “Magh Ene” is derived from the old Irish words for “welcome’ and “level land” ie. plain of hospitality, reflecting our open door approach to our parents who are always welcome.

Magh Ene College was established in 1992 by Donegal ETB and continues the tradition of second level education established by the Louis Order in Bundoran. The College is situated on a 14 acre site in a modern building close to the heart of Bundoran, and caters for the needs of families in south Donegal, north Leitrim and north Sligo areas. We are a co-educational school of 330 students, and are very proud of the educational provision we offer, and especially of our student’s achievements. The College offers a broad curriculum with a full range of subjects encompassing Junior Cycle, an optional Transition Year and Leaving Certificate Programme.

High quality teaching and learning is paramount in our college. Students are consistently encouraged to do their best, and are supported by a year long, one to one academic mentoring programme. Success in examinations is vigorously pursued at both Higher and Ordinary level. Specific recommendations on Homework and the use of a Homework Journal are issued by the College for the benefit of both students and parents/guardians. Magh Ene College has adopted a whole school approach to Assessment for Learning and Instructional Intelligence, ensuring that each student receives the very best of progressive and effective teaching and learning methodologies. ICT is integrated into all subjects with annual investment in the most up to date technology for student’s use. A tradition of excellent Junior Certificate and Leaving Certificate results exists in Magh Ene College, with the majority of our students on an annual basis, progressing to third level pursuing a wide range of career opportunities.

Our Student Leadership team is led by our Head Boy and Head Girl who represent the student voice through the student council and class prefect system. Our Guidance Counsellor meets students in all year groups and works with our wellbeing co-ordinator and pastoral care team ensuring the wellbeing of all students is looked after.

Students are encouraged to participate in the wide range of extra-curricular activities offered in sports, drama, and join our clubs such as photography, history, book & film, chess and board games.

1                    GLOSSARY OF TERMS

Applicant’ means the parent / guardian of a Student, or, in the case of a Student who has reached the age of 18 years, the Student, who has made an application for admission to Magh Ene College.

Student’ means the person in respect of whom the application is being made. All uses of the word throughout this Policy therefore imply ‘prospective’ as part of the interpretation. That is, the use of the word ‘Student’ does not mean that the application for him/her has been accepted such that s/he is regarded as a Student of Magh Ene College by virtue of application alone.

Gender’, in line with the definition of “the gender ground” in the Equal Status Act 2000, is such that “one is male and the other is female”.

This does not prejudice any Student who is Intersex or identifies as Androgynous/Androgyne, Bigender, Demigender, Gender Fluid, Genderqueer, Multigender, Neutrois, Non-binary, Transgender, Transsexual or otherwise.

Parent’ has the same meaning as in the Education Act 1998 and includes a foster parent and a guardian appointed under the Guardianship of Children Acts, 1964 to 1997.

For the purpose of the selection criterion relating to the student having a sibling who previously attended the school, ‘Sibling’ refers to full siblings, half-siblings, foster- siblings and step-siblings.

For the purpose of the selection criterion relating to the student having a sibling currently enrolled in the school, ‘Sibling’ refers to full siblings, half-siblings, foster-siblings, step- siblings and students who reside in the same household.

‘First-Year’ means the intake group of Students for the most junior class or year in a school.

2                  ADMISSION STATEMENT

ETB schools are state, co-educational, multidenominational schools underpinned by the core values of:

  • Excellence in Education;
    • Care;
    • Equality;
    • Community and
    • Respect.

As the state provider of education, the ETB sector defines a ‘multidenominational’ school in the following way:

In ETB schools, all students are given equal opportunities for enrolment in line with the Education (Admissions to School) Act 2018. Once enrolled, our schools strive to provide all students with equal opportunities to engage with the curriculum and school life. In all aspects of school life all members of our school communities are

treated equitably regardless of their race, gender, religion/belief, age, family status, civil status, membership of the Traveller community, sexual orientation, ability or socio- economic status.

Our schools provide a safe physical and social environment that reinforces a sense of belonging to the school community and wider society. They strive to enable every student to realise their full potential regardless of any aspect of their identity or background. Our schools promote a fully inclusive education that recognises the plurality of identities, beliefs and values held by students, parents and staff. We prepare open-minded, culturally sensitive and responsible citizens with a strong sense of shared values.

In ETB schools, students of all religions and beliefs are treated equally. The school environment and activities do not privilege any particular group over another whilst at the same time acknowledging and facilitating students of all religions and beliefs.

Accordingly, Magh Ene College shall not discriminate in its admission of a Student based on the following grounds:

  • Gender of the Student or Applicant. However, where a school admits students of one gender only, it is not discriminatory to refuse to admit Students not of that gender;
  • Civil status of the Student or Applicant;
  • Family status of the Student or Applicant;
  • Sexual orientation of the Student or Applicant;
  • Religion of the Student or Applicant;
  • Disability of the Student or Applicant;
  • Race of the Student or Applicant;
  • The Student’s or Applicant’s membership of the Traveller community;
  • Special educational needs of the Student or Applicant.

Magh Ene College shall not charge fees or payments or seek contributions as a condition of admission or continued enrolment of a Student.

3                  LEGAL FRAMEWORK

Donegal ETB was established under the Education and Training Board Act 2013 which sets out the functions of all ETBs, including to establish and maintain recognised schools, centres for education and education and training facilities in each ETB’s functional area.

The board of management of Magh Ene College is a committee established under section

44 of the Education and Training Board Act 2013 and also constitutes a board of management within the meaning of the Education Act 1998.

The Education (Admission to Schools) Act 2018 and the Education (Welfare) Act 2000 place a duty on all recognised schools to prepare and publish an Admission Policy.

The Education Act, 1998 provides for an appeal process in the event of a refusal to enrol. The appeal process is set out in section 5.3 in respect of applications made to the First-Year Group and in section 6.3 in respect of applications made to all years other than the First- Year Group.

Section 62(7)(n) of the Education Act 1998 requires each school to set out in its Admission Policy the arrangements it has in place where a parent, or student over 18 years of age, requests that the student opt-out of religious instruction.

Magh Ene College offers religious education in all year groups as it promotes the holistic development of students and can contribute positively to their wellbeing in line with the principles of the Junior Cycle and Senior Cycle Frameworks. It facilitates the intellectual, social, emotional, spiritual values and moral development of students and encourages respect for all members of our school communities. In addition, religious education supports the ‘multi-denominational’ aspect of our school’s ethos as it provides opportunities for students to engage with questions around their own religious or non-religious beliefs and those of their peers.

It is important to understand that our school does not provide ‘religious instruction’ and therefore the legal requirement to advise of the option to opt-out of religious instruction does not arise in this school. It is also important to understand the distinction between ‘religious instruction’ and religious education’:

Religious instruction is a term used in Ireland to indicate instruction in accordance with the rites, practices and teachings of a particular religion or denomination for pupils of that religious tradition. Religious instruction may be provided in a denominational school setting.

Religious education is open to all pupils regardless of their commitment to any particular religion or worldview. It seeks to contribute to the spiritual and moral development of all students equally.

As ETB schools are ‘multi-denominational’, Magh Ene College supports the provision of religious education that caters for all students regardless of their religious or non-religious beliefs and therefore does not provide religious instruction of any particular religion or belief.

4                  GENERAL ADMISSION PROVISIONS

A decision on an application for admission shall be based on:

  • the implementation of this Admission Policy,
    • the annual Admission Notice of the school, and the
    • information provided by the Applicant in the application for admission.

If, prior to the commencement of section 62 of the Education Act 1998 by the Education (Admission to Schools) Act 2018 on the 1st February 2020, Magh Ene College had confirmed, in writing, that an Applicant had been placed on a list relating to the allocation of school places for entrance before the 1st February 2025, then this confirmation is still valid and the Applicant will be offered that place.

In processing an application Magh Ene College shall not consider:

  • The payment of fees or contributions to the school;
  • A Student’s academic ability, skills or aptitude
  • The occupation, financial status, academic ability, skills or aptitude of a Student’s Parent(s);
  • A requirement that a Student or his or her Parent(s), attend an interview, open day or other meeting as a condition of admission;
  • A Student’s connection to the school due to a member of his or her family attending or having previously attended the school, unless the connection is a sibling of the Student concerned attending, or having attended, the school.
  • The date and time on which an application for admission was received by the school as long as it is received during the period specified for receiving applications set out in the annual Admission Notice for that academic year.

Magh Ene College will consider the offer of a place to every Student seeking admission to the school, unless the following applies:

  • The Parent fails to confirm in writing that s/he accepts the Student Code of Behaviour and he/she shall make all reasonable efforts to ensure compliance with such code by the Student;

Where Magh Ene College considers an application, each Student shall receive a place, unless the school is oversubscribed, in which case, selection criteria will be applied to each application.

Section 5 of this Policy addresses the selection criteria and other matters related to the admission provisions for the First-Year Group.

Section 6 of this Policy addresses the selection criteria and other matters related to the admission provisions for all year groups other than First-Year.

Where Magh Ene College is not oversubscribed, all Students will be offered a school place, subject to sections 4.7.

5.1.1         Oversubscription

When the number of applications exceeds the number of places available, the published selection criteria as set out at section 5.1.2 below will apply and a waiting list shall be compiled which shall remain valid only for the school year in respect of which the applications are made. Where Magh Ene College is in a position to offer further school places that become available for and during that academic year, places will be offered in accordance with the order of priority in which Students have been placed on the waiting list.

For the avoidance of doubt, if a Student does not receive a place in the school for a given academic year, but s/he wishes to be considered for admission to the same year group in the following academic year, a new application must be made on behalf of that Student during the dates specified by the school as being the period when it will accept applications to all year groups other than First-Year.

Where the school is oversubscribed, any selection criteria that are not included in this Admission Policy shall not be considered in determining whether or not a Student is admitted to the school.

5.1.2            Selection criteria

Magh Ene College will apply the following criteria for admission to the First-Year Group:

  • If the Student has siblings currently enrolled in the school;
    • If the Student has siblings who were previously enrolled in the school;

5.1.3            Selection process

An Applicant will be offered a place in Magh Ene College based on the number of the published selection criterion met by him/her i.e. an Applicant who meets three of the specified application criteria will be given priority over an Applicant who meets two of the specified application criteria.

Where two or more applications have met the same number of selection criteria and are tied for a place, Magh Ene College will apply a random lottery to assign any available places in the school, or on the waiting list, to those applications.

5.1.4            Late applications

An application received by Magh Ene College after the closing date published by the school, and set out in the Admission Notice, is considered a late application for the purposes of this Admission Policy.

Where Magh Ene College is oversubscribed and receives a late application for admission, that application will receive a place on the waiting list beneath Applicants whose applications were received by the school before the closing date for applications. Such late applications will be placed on the waiting list in accordance with the date and time they were received by the school and subsequently the school’s selection criteria will be applied in accordance with this Admission Policy.

Where Magh Ene College is not oversubscribed and it receives a late application, the Student seeking admission will receive an offer of a place within the school, subject to sections 4.7, and the same process as applies to Applicants whose applications were received before the closing date will be applied i.e. an Acceptance Form will be issued to the Applicant for completion and return to the school within 2 weeks of issue.

5.1.5            Second/third-round offers of a place

Where a Student is in receipt of an offer of a place within Magh Ene College but does not accept the offer, or the school withdraws the offer in line with the relevant provisions of this Policy, the place will be offered to the next Student on the waiting list in a second-

round of offers. This process will continue throughout third and fourth rounds etc. until all places within the school have been filled.

5.1.6            Acceptance of a place

If the Student in respect of whom the application is made is offered a place, the Applicant will be issued with an Acceptance Form by the school.

The Applicant shall indicate acceptance of an offer by fully completing and returning the Acceptance Form by the date set out in the School’s Admission Notice, or within 2 weeks of issuing by the school if it is a late application or if it is a second/third-round offer. This includes indicating whether or not s/he has applied for and is awaiting confirmation of an offer of admission from another school.

Failure to fully complete and return the Acceptance Form to the school by the date set out in the School’s Admission Notice, or within 2 weeks of issuing by the school if it is a late application or if it is a second/third-round offer, may result in withdrawal of an offer, in line with the grounds for withdrawal of an offer as set out below.

5.1.7             Refusal

Where a Student in respect of whom an application is being sought has not been offered a school place, the Applicant will be provided in writing with:

    • Details of the Student’s place on the waiting list, if applicable; and
    • Details of the Applicant’s right to appeal the decision.
