GOK stands for 'equal educational opportunities’. Schools have places for GOK children (35%) and non-GOK children (65%). GOK children have a mum who doesn't have a diploma of secondary education or who receive a school allowance. Non-GOK children do not.
Do you want GOK or non-GOK priority?
- If so, put your child's name down between 7 March (9 a.m.) and 31 March 2022 (4 p.m.).
- Enter the priority details you are asked for.
- Then forward the relevant documents to the LOP, the Local Consultation Platform, within 3 working days of having submitted your place application.
GOK: which documents do I need to forward to the LOP?
You will need to furnish proof of the fact that your family was in receipt of a school allowance during the 2020-2021 or 2021-2020 school year.
Non-GOK: which documents do I need to forward to the LOP?
You don't need to forward documents to the LOP. When you register you child in the school, take 1 of these documents, of the pupil's mother, with you:
- A diploma of secondary education
- A proof of study of the 2nd grade of the 3rd stage of vocational secondary education,
- An equivalent proof of study.
What is a school allowance?
A school allowance is a financial contribution from the Vlaamse Gemeenschap (Flemish Community) for pupils in nursery and compulsory education. If your family's income is below a certain minimum, you will qualify for a school allowance.
