Primary Schools Admission 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.

Living outside Northern Ireland at time of application

You can still make an application for a primary place. However, priority is given to children residing in Northern Ireland at the time of their proposed admission.

If you are moving to Northern Ireland, when completing the application, you must use the address you are residing at the time of the completion of your application.  Boards of Governors can only use a new address once your child is residing at the new address. You should notify the EA in writing when you have moved and you will need to provide verification of your move.
