IPPN call for clear guidance for the delivery of Summer Provision programmes and the re-opening schools

June 12th 2020

IPPN acknowledge the announcement today (June 12th) of a summer provision programme for children with special needs and students in DEIS schoolsand recognise the importance of these programmes for these children.

Back to School

Welcome to this, the start of a new section of our IPPN Website, called “Back to School.”

IPPN commits here to bring you the most up to date content, information, links, templates etc in relation to returning to the school workplace in September. It is hoped that you will find here a one stop shop for much of what you need to know, or where to go, in terms of getting your school up and running again.

IPPN is working closely with all of the partners to bring all the available information into one place and this will also be available separately.

Here however, IPPN commits to you our members, to put at your fingertips as much as we possibly can, in terms of what you need in order to reopen your school safely. This will be added to frequently and systematically and is designed to complement the other section on our homepage entitled Covid-19 and all of our other publications, such as E-scéal & Leadership+.
