Is your child starting P1 in September 2019?
This year we have been advised by the Education Authority that the process of applying for a place for your child in P1 for September 2019 will now have to be done digitally. This will apply to every school.
We will explain the process in more detail at our Open Morning on the 5th December at 9.30.
The Education Authority plan to introduce online applications for admissions to Nursery and primary schools for children starting September 2019.
The Go Live date for the new digital admissions is Wednesday 2nd January 2019 at 10.00 am and the closing date for admissions will be 12.00 midnight on Thursday 31 January.
Parents will continue to provide birth certificates and other verifying documents to their first preference school.
The EA is planning to provide EA assisted support for parents and users of the new system. This will be in the form of a telephone service, enhanced website content and a number of face to face drop in clinics in January 2019. We will provide you with more information once we receive it.
We will also be providing a number of dates in January (10th and 17th January from 9.00-10.00), when parents will be invited to our ICT suite to complete the on line application forms and staff will be available to assist at this time.
If you do require any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us
