Admissions arrangements

  • The registration period for children seeking to join Reception in September 2022 will open at 9am on Friday 1st October 2021 and close at 3pm on Friday 17th December 2021.  Children may still be registered after the defined registration period but will be assigned a lower priority if the availability of places is limited.  The Committee for Education, Sport and Culture will endeavour to place them at their catchment school if there is sufficient capacity and resources.


  • Children must be registered at their catchment school. Information about catchment areas can be found at .To register a child, please complete the appropriate form from the 'Application Form' section and return it to the relevant school, accompanied by a photocopied proof of address (e.g. utility bill, driving licence), copy of your child's birth certificate and photographic proof of your identity (e.g. driving licence or passport). If your child is a baptised Catholic you may choose to register them at one of the two Catholic primary schools (known as Voluntary Schools - Notre Dame du Rosaire Catholic Primary School or St Mary & St Michael  Catholic Primary School.) The same process applies to these schools, however in addition, the application must be accompanied by the Catholic baptismal certificate.



  • It is expected that parents/carers will be informed of their child's allocated primary school by the end of the Spring term, Thursday 7th April 2022.
