Post-primary process advice for parents of children in primary 6

As your child is now in Primary Six you may be beginning to give some thought to the next stage of their education. When your child is in Primary Seven you will be required to apply for a place in a post-primary school. The Department of Education (DE) leaflet 'The Transfer Process to Post-primary School - Advice for Parents of Children in Primary Six' provides parents with early advice about the sorts of things to think about in making a decision about which schools to apply to next year. It sets out the main steps in the post-primary transfer process. It then explains:

  • The role of parents: what you can do to help your child transfer to post-primary school.
  • How parents can prepare for this role: what things you can think about in choosing a school for your child.
  • How parents complete their child’s application (the Transfer Form) to post-primary school.
