Apply for a Place in our Nursery or Primary school


On-line Application for Nursery and Primary September 2021

To apply for a place in our Nursery or Primary 1 for September 2021 please access the online portal on the Education Authority website: 

This will open for applications on 7th January 2021 and close on 29th January 2021.


You can complete your application online during the above timeframe - it is quick, easy and there will be user guides and a helpline available if you need any assistance. 

  • It is very important that you submit a punctual application as any applications received after 12.00 noon on Friday 29th January 2021 will be treated as ‘late’;
  • Having completed an application, you will receive a confirmation email. Within 3 days you will then receive another email with a unique link where you can securely upload the child’s birth certificate and any supporting documents required. 

EA Document Upload – New Process
Parents will have until 12 noon on Friday 5th February 2021 to provide their supporting documentation and this should be sent via the EA Document Upload.

Once an online application has been made, parents will receive a confirmation email and a link to the EA Document Upload. This will enable you to upload the birth certificate and proof of address. Parents can upload photos, scans, PDF documents and so forth from whatever device you are using. (Mobile phone, tablet, lap-top etc)

There will be an opportunity to review the list of uploaded documents. Then back at the list, you can continue if you are satisfied that the correct documents have been added. Finally, there's a message to confirm that there is a successful upload and a reminder that later on in the process, parents will be able to log back into the citizen portal in April  to view placement details for their child and for their application.
