Admissions

We have 52 full-time places each year. An application must be made through the Education Authority online Admissions process. The school’s admissions policy is in line with guidance from the Department of Education and with Government policy in that priority will be given to children whose parent/s are in receipt of Income Support or Job Seekers Allowance. This policy and process applies to all Nursery schools in Northern Ireland.

It is the responsibility of parents to provide all relevant information in relation to their application, including the child’s birth certificate. If applicable, the form should also be taken to the Social Security office to be stamped confirming eligibility for Income Support/Job Seekers Allowance and submitted to the school.

Applications for the following September take place in January each year. You will be informed at the end of Spring if your child is offered a place. When parents confirm their intention to accept an offered place, the relevant information regarding policies, procedures, curriculum and start dates will be sent to you.
