Applying for Primary 1 and Nursery for the 2019/2020 school year?
The way in which parents apply for Primary 1 and Nursery places is changing.
Online applications are being introduced by the Education Authority for admission to Primary 1 and Nursery for children enrolling for September 2019.
A new portal for parents to apply online for a place has been created and it will allow parents to list their school preferences.
Parents will have the opportunity to amend their submitted application until the closing date. This replaces the current paper based application form.
Parents will continue to be required to provide their child’s birth certificate and any other verifying documents stipulated in admission criteria directly to the first preference school or nursery.
The Go Live date for the new digital admissions is Wednesday 2 January 2019 at 10.00am.
The closing time and date for punctual applications will be 12.00 midnight on Thursday 31 January 2019.
The EA is planning to provide Assisted Digital Support for parents and users of the new system. This will be in the form of a new telephone service, enhanced website content and a number of face-to-face drop-in clinics held in EA offices and other locations during January 2019. Details of the planned digital assistance will be provided in due course.
Please check the EA website, https://www.eani.org.uk/parents/admissions for updates on how to apply for a place, key dates in the admissions procedure and schools’ admissions criteria for September 2019/2020 school year.
We, at Moneyrea Primary and Nursery, will publish this information as soon as it becomes available.
