P1 places shortage

I have been in touch with a large number of families over the last couple of weeks who didn’t get a P1 place for their child for September – a horrible and very worrying situation to be in. It is particularly frustrating that there is no Assembly, Minister or Committee to try to get some progress on this!
There is the possibility of an additional P1 class in St Joseph’s Drumbo if there are sufficient numbers and the parents action group there have asked me to share some info and their contact details. They are seeking to contact parents whose children were unsuccessful in obtaining a P1 place for their child in: St Josephs’s Primary; St Ita’s Primary; St Bernards Primary; Millenium Integrated Primary – all in the parish of Drumbo and Caryduff. You can make contact via email: dcparentsassociation@gmail.com or phone: 07837 431106 or 07469 941598. Do get in touch if you are affected and in this area.
