Return to in-school teaching and learning for students with special educational needs
Following a period of intensive engagement with the education partners, Minister for Education Norma Foley TD and Minister of State for Special Education and Inclusion Josepha Madigan TD announced details of a return to in-school teaching and learning for students with special educational needs attending special classes at post-primary level.
Students attending these classes will return for in-person teaching and learning from Monday 22 February, the same day on which primary school special classes will return.
Recognising that remote learning is particularly challenging for some students with complex needs, the Department of Education has also put in place a supplementary programme to support the education and/or care needs of students with complex needs at post-primary level.
The documents below contain information about the supplementary programme.
