IPPN Irish Primary Principals' Network, the professional body for Irish primary school leaders

Press Releases
2nd July 2014 - A Minister with Vision and Principles

During his short time as Minister for Education, Ruairi Quinn brought a new phrase in to the lexicon of government – ‘I don’t know’. The capacity to admit making a mistake or not knowing the answer to a question endeared him to one and all. Ruairi Quinn is a man of immense ability and achievement but also has great humility, which gives him depth of character. Even the minister’s greatest critics would agree that he was not just a reforming minister but a man of vision, always looking to international best practice as a measure of quality in Irish education.

18th June 2014 - IPPN welcomes new model of allocation from NCSE
 
The Irish Primary Principals’ Network welcomes the rationale behind the proposed new model of resource allocation but harbours some reservations. This new model will target resources to schools where there is greatest need. This is very welcome, as is the move away from segregating Resource and General Allocation hours. IPPN is delighted that schools can now combine all of their support hours, as it never made sense for schools to have two or three part-time teachers servicing GAM and Resource provision. However, IPPN seeks clarification and guidelines in relation to the employment of teachers with restricted recognition.

15th May 2014 - Deputies make the difference

The critical importance of the role of deputy principal is the key message as hundreds of Deputy Principals converge on the Carlton Shearwater, Ballinasloe, Co Galway this weekend for the annual Irish Primary Principals’ Network (IPPN), Deputy Principals’ Conference. The effective distribution of leadership to the deputy principal is essential to build management capacity, particularly when school leadership is acknowledged as vital in determining teaching and learning outcomes within the school.

9th April 2014 - School Principals to be identified earlier, trained better and supported by clearer roles for Deputy and Assistant Principals - IPPN

By improving how potential school principals are identified, trained and supported, our schools and the education of our students can be improved radically. This was the core message of the Irish Primary Principals' Network’s (IPPN) presentation to the Joint Committee on Education and Social Protection today. Having been asked to address the committee on the subject of school leadership, IPPN examined international and national research as well as feedback from its 3,350 school leaders in order to map out how the entire life cycle of a school principal can be adjusted to improve outcomes for schools and the children attending them.
