Join Chris Lyttle MLA for a membership engagement event regarding changes to the pre-school admissions criteria.
This is currently out for consultation by the Department of Education, and relates to the statutory criterion that all funded pre-school education providers are required to use as part of the pre-school admissions process. It seeks views on proposals to extend the definition of “children from socially disadvantaged circumstances” to include a wider group of children. It also seeks views on the proposal to standardise the length of pre-school education sessions and the impact that this may have on the admissions process in future. You can read more about the consultation here.
Alliance would like to hear directly from our membership to inform our response to this consultation. If you would like to share your views, please RSVP below to join us on Thursday 10th June at 7.30pm! The zoom link will be circulated closer to the event.
