The Principal has a responsibility to ensure that the Catholic identity of the school is maintained and promoted so that parish schools can give priority in enrolment to students who are baptised Catholics.
Schools may also enrol students from other faith traditions whose families can demonstrate they share in the foundational values of the parish school.
Principals inform Parish Priests of accurate enrolment numbers of Catholics present in the school throughout the year.
The following priorities for enrolment at parish schools are recommended in policy:
