                                      WE CARE... DO YOU?

                                 This affects your child too.

 In the Irish education system we have an Inclusion Policy. This means that children with Special Educational Needs (SEN), are welcome in our schools and given the necessary support that their condition requires. Special Needs Assistants (SNAs) provide invaluable support to help these children to reach their full potential.

 However, in the past few years the Dept of Education and Skills has repeatedly targeted children with Special Education Needs, by systematically eroding their supports:

  • Resource hours have been cut

  • Access to SNAs has been drastically cut

 The latest round of cuts (circular 0030/2014), is a step too far. Our wonderful Inclusion Policy is becoming an Exclusion Policy as our children are falling victim to the latest Value for Money and Policy Review.

We believe that circular 0030/2014 will have a devastating impact not only on children with SEN but on all children in our schools.
