Dear Parent,

The Department has announced an In-Person Supplementary Programme to support the education or care needs of post primary students with complex needs.

This program of in-person support is intended to supplement the teaching and learning provided by the student’s school and alleviate the impact of this period of school closure through the provision of 5 hours per week in-person teaching or care support to be delivered in homes.

We have commenced an audit of all staff to ascertain if any are available to provide this support to your student. This audit will be completed by Monday 22nd February 2021.

Please do not contact staff directly until after the staff audit has been completed and those interest in working on the program are identified.

Wishing you all a safe and happy Mid Term.
