Dear Principal

As you are aware, the Government has made a decision on foot of public health advice to extend the level 5 restriction measures in place to supress the spread of Covid-19, and as part of these measures to continue this phase of school closure at present.

This decision has been made in the context of wishing to avoid the movement of the full one-million strong school-going population daily. The closure of schools will be kept under ongoing review by Government.

It is a priority for Government to address the needs of children with special educational needs and provide additional supports for these children during this period of closure, in line with public health advice.

The Department of Education is engaging closely with stakeholder representatives during this limited period, to work towards achieving consensus on a satisfactory way forward to ensure a safe phased return of children with special educational needs to in-school learning. This remains a high priority for all partners.

The Department is also continuing to work with education partners to ensure that all schools can safely fully reopen, in line with public health advice.

You will have received updated information and guidance in recent bulletins, and it may be helpful to summarise these here, along with some further items that may be useful to parents and the wider school community.

Yours faithfully

Deirdre Shanley

Assistant Secretary
