Transfer between schools
If your child is in Years 2-7 of a primary school or Years 9-12 and you wish to move him / her to another primary school or another post primary school you will need to make a formal application using the AP1 form.
Appealing a school place decision
You can make an application to the Exceptional Circumstances Body (ECB) in situations where your child has not been admitted to the school you consider that, for exceptional reasons, he/she must attend. This facility is available only in respect of admissions to post-primary schools (Years 8 to 12). There is no deadline for applications to the ECB. Information can be found on the
nidirect web site
Submit the AP1 form directly to the school you wish your child to be considered for. Forms may be completed for different schools at the same time. The school will respond to you in writing when a decision has been made, normally within 10 working days. There is no deadline for applications. The AP1 form provides information on the circumstances where you have a right of complaint or appeal if you are refused admission by a school.
