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

Press Releases
14th Oct 2014 - IPPN's Reaction to Budget 2015

IPPN welcomed the announcement that there are additional teachers and SNAs allocated in Budget 2015. However, this increased figure will cater for the increase in the growing school population and a positive impact will not be felt for children in the class room.

Following the announcements for this year’s budget, IPPN has an immense concern for the continued decrease in capitation grants that has gone relatively unspoken for 2015. A 1% reduction a year for primary school capitation and related grants was announced in Budget 2012, the final percentage decrease will take place in 2015.

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.
