Helpline open from 8:30am to 4:30pm

The Parent Portal has closed as the deadline for making application for a pre-school or primary school place was midnight on Thursday 31 January 2019.

If you missed the closing date you can still submit a late application.

Late Application
As the online Parent Portal has now closed, a late application can only be submitted using a paper form. Applicants making a late application should contact their local pre-school or primary school to get a form. Once completed the paper form should be returned to the first preference pre-school/primary school as soon as possible. Please note that any applications submitted now will be treated as late and must be submitted to your first preference school/pre-school not later than 4pm on Monday 25th March 2019.

If you fail to submit an application by 25th March 2019 your child will not be considered for a place until after the close of the admissions procedure at the beginning of May 2019 at which date many pre-schools/primary schools will have filled all available places for September 2019.
