Re : Amendments to Admission Policy


Dear School Community,

The Education (Provision in respect of Children with Special Educational Needs) Act 2022 has commenced. Following the commencement of the Act, all schools are required to amend their Admission Policy.

As per Section 62 of the Education Act, any amendment must take place after a consultation process with staff, parents and students.

The proposed amendment/change to the Admission Policy of the school is to include the following two statements in the Admission Statement Section of a school’s Admission Policy:

“Coláiste Bhaile Chláir will cooperate with the National Council for Special Education in the performance by the Council of its functions under the Education for Persons with Special Educational Needs Act 2004 relating to the provision of education to children with special educational needs, including in particular by the provision and operation of a special class or classes when requested to do so by the Council.”


“Coláiste Bhaile Chláir will comply with any direction served on the patron or the board of management, as the case may be, under section 37A and any direction served on the board of management under section 67(4B) of the Education Act.”

The italicised changes above, are the only amendments being proposed to the Admission Policy at this moment in time. The proposed amendments are a legal requirement. And we will insert into our current policy.

If you have any observations or feedback to offer on this matter, please email ( by 16th January 2023.
