Special needs – update Jan 14th 3pm

Today, the Minister for Education Norma Foley TD announced a phased return for children in special schools and a return to school for those in special classes in primary schools and children with significant additional needs in mainstream primary classes, beginning on Thursday 21 January.

In that context, Minister of State for Special Education and Inclusion Josepha Madigan TD further announced that “It is now vital that we continue to work with all stakeholders in education, including post-primary, to ensure that remaining concerns are addressed so that a partial return to school may begin from the 21 January.”

ASTI has not yet been provided with any specific proposal regarding second-level provision.
