This year, all primary schools can offer a summer programme for pupils with complex special educational needs and those at risk of educational disadvantage.
A school-based programme provides a more holistic experience for pupils and helps keep the connection with school and peers.
There are two schemes available in the 2023 Summer Programme for mainstream primary schools
- The Primary School Scheme – for pupils in enrolled in special classes, as well as pupils in mainstream classes who have special educational needs, and those who are at risk of educational disadvantage
- Literacy and numeracy summer camp/campaí samhraidh for pupils in DEIS schools.
