Applications for admission to pre-school and primary one will open on Wednesday 2 January 2019 at 10.00am and close for punctual applications on Thursday 31 January 2019 (midnight). The EA is establishing a Digital Admissions Online Resource Hub to create a central repository of support materials that parents and schools/providers can access to find out about the new pre-school and primary application process. This link will be supplied when available. This link will give you an idea of how the digital application process will work: Parent Portal screen recording:

The EA is taking a digital first approach to transacting with its stakeholders, this means that digital (online) will be the first option to be explored/offered. Whilst seeking to encourage parents to apply online, as outlined in the Equality Screening document a paper application form will be accepted.   Parent applying online will be advised that birth certificates and any verifying documents specified in admission criteria be submitted to their first preference setting on or before 12 noon on Friday 8 February 2019.   We know that change is challenging and we are here to help! We plan to provide access to our computer suite during our "Cosy Night In" and we are planning an addition digital support sessions.   Keep watching for support sessions and links to apply for primary school on-line!
