Digital Admissions Update: (26/06/2019)
Phase 1 of this Project resulted in 45,000 (97%) of Pre-school and Primary 1 applications submitted online for September 2019 using the new Parent Portal with almost 80% of applications submitted from mobile devices.
A review of Phase 1 has commenced with a survey issued to parents and a formal survey issued to all pre-school and primary providers. These feedback mechanisms will be supplemented by focus groups and visits to a number of schools/playgroups to help inform developments for September 2020 intake. Work has also commenced on a new project to develop a Digital Post Primary Admissions system.
EA will be seeking to secure the regular input of schools/playgroups to the development of a modern, efficient admissions system for all sectors that meets the needs of providers and parents.
