School Admissions Office

School Admissions Officer
Mrs Mairead Kerr T: 028 8241 1571 E: mairead.kerr@eani.org.uk 

Information on admissions to Pre-School, Primary and Post Primary Schools can be accessed on the EA website www.eani.org.uk/admissions

Admissions to Pre-School, Primary and Post Primary Schools are administered by the School Admissions Office. The Section provides guidance to Principals/Boards of Governors of all Schools and Leaders/Management Committees of Playgroups on Admission Criteria to be used when selecting pupils. The Education Authority (EA) publishes information for Parents/Guardians regarding admissions to Pre-School, Primary School and Post-Primary School.  This information will be available on the EA website: www.eani.org.uk/admissions from the end of November 2015.  

Appeals Tribunals

Parents/Guardians who feel that a school has not applied its published Criteria correctly have a right of appeal.  The appeal Tribunal is independent of the Education Authority (EA) but the Clerk of the Tribunal can be contacted through the Section. Similarly parents/guardians have a right of appeal to an Independent Tribunal against the expulsion of a pupil. The Section will also facilitate the hearing of these appeals.

Parents/Guardians or Schools who wish to discuss any of these matters should contact the School Admissions Officer as detailed above.

All Information, Application Forms and other relevant information relating to School Admissions Office can be found on the website: www.eani.org.uk/admissions from the end of November 2015.

Application Forms for Pre-Schools and Primary Schools MUST be lodged with the 1st Preference Provider/School on or before 12:00 noon on Wednesday 13 January 2016.
