We are sharing home learning activity ideas and play ideas through our seesaw app with parents. We have also created some ideas and games which can be downloaded from the private gallery section of our website. We have issued the new password to parents on seesaw.

Important update regarding Pre-school/P1 places September 2020. We have received an email from EA with the following details in relation to placement letters being issued for Pre-school and Primary one.
Given the uncertainty of the current situation, EA has made arrangements to prepare and issue notification of placement letters for P1 and Pre-School Stage 1 to parents for receipt on 29 April 2020. The letter will outline the application outcome, provide information on the appeals process and link to the EA website for more information.
As it is possible that due to Covid-19 that some post may take longer to deliver than usual, the Citizen Portal will be opened on Wednesday 29 April and parents / guardians who had applied online can log in to view their child’s pre-school (target age Stage 1) and primary 1 placements. Guidance on how to log in and access placement offers will be accessible on the EA website.
Reference will also be included in the letter to the following:-
*Acceptance or non-acceptance of an offer of a place can be emailed to the school or playgroup and where not accepting the offer, to copy the email to the relevant EA Admissions office; and
*For a small number of schools / playgroups the offer of a place may be conditional on a parent/guardian providing you with verifying information in line with the published admissions criteria and that the respective school or playgroup will contact the parent/guardian accordingly.
The letter from EA will not include information about start dates, induction meetings etc. This will be communicated directly by the pre-school/school at a later date when they are able to do so.
To summarise parents will receive a letter directly from EA, offering them their Pre-school/P1 place for September. We hope this information from EA helps provide clarity for parents.
The Department of Education has informed us that all schools and pre-schools will close at the end of the day on Friday 20th March. Home learning packs and online links have been created for parents. Please continue to follow seesaw for updates.
