Access Arrangements


The process of Access Arrangements (provisions for adjustments such as extra time etc during the assessments) runs alongside the process of Registration.  If you feel your child will qualify* (please see below for a definition) for Access Arrangements in the 2018/2019 cycle you can use the Guidance Notes below (from the 20172018 cycle) as a guide for what to expect.  These will be updated prior to the commencement of the new cycle.

The application form for Access Arrangements for 2018/2019 will be available along with the Registration Form at the end of April 2018.

*“Under the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 a person is considered to have a disability if he/she has a physical or mental impairment which has a substantial and long term affect on his/her ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities.  This may also apply to children with a learning disability.” If your child falls under this definition, or does not have English / Irish as their first language (and has spent less than 3 full years in the UK/Ireland) you should complete an Access Application Form.
