As part of the assessment process the information provided on your registration form will be shared with the AQE school where they will be sitting the Common Entrance Assessment in November, this is necessary for the administration and functioning of the assessments.
Due to GDPR legislation we now need parental permission to share a child’s AQE result with their Primary School and the assessment centre in which they sat the assessments. In both cases AQE only send the information to the Principal of each school. Parents must “opt in” to allow their Primary School and assessment centre access to this information. All results are automatically posted to the child’s home address and permissions to share are in addition to the posted results not instead of.
Allowing this information to be shared can make the process much smoother in the week following the issue of results, particularly in preparation for parent interviews conducted by Primary Principals to submit post-primary school choices to the Education Authority. If you are concerned about giving permission it may be helpful to speak with your Primary Principal or a member of our office staff.
