Special Education Teaching Allocation Appeals
The Special Education Teaching Allocation Appeals process referenced in NCSE 03/2017 has concluded.
A total of 558 appeals were received, 487 appeals from Primary schools and 71 appeals from Post Primary schools. 294 (or 52.7%) of the schools appealed one component of their allocation. 264 schools appealed 2 or more components of their allocation.
As a result 131 schools, or 23.4% of the 558 appellant schools, where there was a significant increase in year on year enrolments or where it appeared that the school’s social context had changed considerably, will receive an increase in their original allocation.
Appeal decision letters will issue to schools this week.
