Primary Admissions Guide

Our guide will help you understand more about the process and what to expect when applying for a place in primary school for your child.

How and when will I be notified of placement?

The admissions procedure closes on Tuesday 27 April 2021 and parents can log on to the Citizen Portal on Wednesday 28 April 2021 with the username and password used when making their application to find out the outcome.  Schools may choose to notify parents by post, letters for receipt on 28 April 2021.

In the unlikely event that your child is not offered a place by any of your preferred schools a letter will be sent out by the Education Authority. You will then be asked to consider further preferences of primary schools for your child to attend and a list of those schools which still have places available at the close of the admissions procedure will be accessible on this website.

Details of the appeals procedure will also be accessible on this website at the end of the admissions procedure.
