The Education Authority (EA) has introduced a new online application for admissions for pre-school and primary school places for September 2020 intake.
A new portal for parents to apply online for a place has been created and it will include the listing of preferences of schools.
Information on the admissions procedure and criteria to pre-school and primary school will be available from Thursday 19th December on the EA website under Admissions which includes the option of ‘finding a pre-school, primary school or post primary school in your area.’
You are encouraged to study the admission criteria of those schools / playgroups that you would consider sending your child to before completing an application.
You should continue to check this website for further updates on the admissions procedure.
The online applications will open on Tuesday 7th January 2020 12.00 noon. The closing time and date for punctual applications will be 12.00 noon on Friday 30th January 2020.
Parents will have the opportunity to amend their submitted application until the closing date. This replaces the current paper based application form.
For admission to the forthcoming academic year, parents will continue to provide their child’s birth certificate and any other verifying documents stipulated in admission criteria directly to the first preference provider/school.
