How to apply

Step 1: Intake and Admission 

To formally apply for a place at Winford Bilingual Primary School we need you to: 

Request an application form by emailing and return it with all the necessary supporting documentation including school reports and the latest CITO test results (if applicable). 

Please return the application form as a Word document or a PDF. 

Once we have received your application, we will send you an invoice for the application fee of €550. This fee is non refundable. We will only process your application after this fee has been paid. 

Step 2: Provisional Confirmation 

After processing your application, we will send you a Provisional Offer (via email). This offer confirms that we have place available for your child. 

You have 2 weeks (10 business days) from the date of the Provisional Offer to accept or decline via email. If we have not heard from you after 10 business days the offer is automatically withdrawn, and you will need to contact us to restart the admissions process.  

Step 3: Acceptance 

Once you accept the Provisional Offer via email, you will receive a one-time, non-refundable enrolment fee of €1000* (per child). This payment must be received within 3 weeks of your acceptance. If payment is not received by the stated deadline, the Provisional Offer is automatically withdrawn, and you will need to contact us to restart the admissions process. 

Once the enrolment fee has been paid, your child will be added to his/her classroom’s list, ensuring their spot within the classroom. You will then receive a formal confirmation of Enrolment. 

*Please note: the enrolment fee is non refundable, even if you decide not to start with us, if you wish to defer the enrolment date, or when you leave the school. This fee is not deducted from the tuition fee. 

Step 4: Assessment 

The moment your child starts at our school we will start the assessment procedure. Our school instructional coach together with the classroom teachers, will observe your child in order to assess the educational needs of your child and to make a personal development plan. If necessary, a formal plan will be presented to you and discussed with you after the assessment. In the case of extra support or testing, we will meet with you and discuss the cost of further evaluations and or support.  

Please note that if your child comes to us from another school where they already receive special support you must let us know this in advance so that we can best support your child when they begin with us. In cases of 1-1 support from a former school we will ask for a short meet/greet with the classroom teachers and director to assess the best classroom fit for your child.  

Please be aware that if any information about your child's needs is left out during the Admissions process, we reserve the right to reassess continued enrolment at our school.
