The EA recognises the need to provide Assisted Digital Support for some parents/guardians who want to apply online for a pre-school or primary place and is therefore hosting a number of Digital Admission Clinics.
These clinics are being targeted at areas where there is a high number of newcomer families, high levels of social disadvantage and localities with poor access to broadband.
The clinics will operate on a drop in basis and parents will be assisted in making their online application for a pre-school or primary place. Depending on their wishes/skills this could range from creation of an email address to submission of an application. In addition varying levels of translation services can be accessed at the clinics.
Details of clinics will be available on the EA website and the schedule will be updated regularly at www.eani.org.uk/clinicsforparents as further clinics are arranged.
The following session has been arranged for Newtownards on Friday, 25 January.
VENUE: Surestart, 26 Dakota Avenue, Newtownards BT23 4QU
TIME: 10.00 am – 12.30 pm
