Education Passports are now compulsory for all 6th class pupils

Posted by SchoolDays Newshound, on 30/06/2015.
Tags: Education And PoliticsEducation Passports are now compulsory for all 6th class pupils


The Department of Education and Skills has recently made the 'Education Passport' a compulsory requirement for all 6th class pupils in their transition from Primary to Post-Primary School.

In a new circular, which was issued to schools earlier this month, the Education Passport, which has been developed by the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment, (NCCA) is described as

"a suite of materials to support the reporting and transfer of pupil information from Primary to Post-Primary schools. The materials are presented under the umbrella title of 'Education Passport' and are available at www.ncca.ie/transfer."

The materials were first introduced to Primary schools in the academic year 2013/14 on an optional basis.

The Education Passport comprises of three main learning assessments, completed by Primary schools, to help Post-Primary Schools evaluate students as individuals. The materials in the Education Passport include;

1) Teacher's Report - The standard 6th Class Report Card Template, which must be completed by the school.

2) Child's Report - The Primary School will supply the My Profile Sheet, which must be completed by all 6th class pupils and will be shared with their Parents/Guardians upon completion

3) Parent/Guardian's Report - The My Child’s Profile sheet should be sent with the My Profile sheet to parents/guardians by the end of the second week of June at the latest. Parents may complete the My Child’s Profile, should they wish to do so. The primary school should forward My Child’s Profile, if completed, along with the pupil’s My Profile sheet and the 6th Class Report Card to the post-primary school.

Upon confirmation of enrolment, the Primary school will send all relevent materials to the Post-Primary school.

For parents, you should receive a copy these materials before they are sent to the Post-Primary school. Although the My Child's Profile sheet is not a compulsory requirement, it does provide parents with the chance to give voice to who your child really is as an individual.

The My Child's Profile sheet is available to view or download here.

School Completion Programme to be maintained

Posted by Schooldays Newshound, on 26/06/2015.
Tags: Education And PoliticsSchool Completion Programme to be maintained

Clare Fine Gael Senator Tony Mulcahy has received a commitment from Government that funding levels under the School Completion Programme (SCP) are to be maintained.

Set up as part of Department of Education and Skills (DES) DEIS Strategy, the scheme aims to increase the numbers of young people staying in primary and second level school. SCP projects provide a range of supports and interventions designed to support approximately 36,000 children throughout the country who have been identified by local management committees as being at risk of educational disadvantage.

Speaking in a Seanad Adjournment Debate in response to Senator Mulcahy's request for clarification on future levels of funding for the Programme, Dr James Reilly TD, Minister for Children and Youth Affairs said his Department is committed "to ensuring that there is no diminution in the school completion programme services."

"The School Completion Programme is an important service within the agency's educational welfare services. It is highly regarded as a key response in securing improved educational outcomes for children and young people at risk of early school leaving. I am pleased to confirm for the Senator that there will be no cuts to the programme," he said.

Minister Reilly noted that a review of the Programme by the ESRI is "almost complete".

"The review is an important initiative in regard to planning for the future development of the school completion programme. The review will assist in identifying the reforms necessary to consolidate the programme on a sustainable footing for the future. The review is being overseen by a steering committee involving officials of the Child and Family Agency, my Department and the Department of Education and Skills," he added.

Senator Mulcahy responded: "I warmly welcome the Minister's confirmation that funding is not to be cut in County Clare or any other county.

"This hugely important scheme has benefited thousands of children across Ireland in the 13 years since it was established. It has had a significant positive impact on levels of young people's retention in primary and second level schools and on numbers of pupils who successfully complete the Senior Cycle or equivalent. Up to now however, there had been fears that the Programme could face a reduction in funding in the future"

The SCP focuses on targeting and providing supports to young people identified to be most at risk of early school leaving and includes identifying and supporting children at risk of not reaching their potential in the educational system because of poor attendance, afterschool supports; mentoring programmes; and therapeutic interventions. Nationally, the SCP operates in 470 primary schools and 224 post-primary schools. There are 124 local SCP projects employing 248 full-time, 627 part-time and 2,211 sessional and other staff.

"There are two projects in County Clare," according to Senator Mulcahy.

"The Clare projects include the Ennis school completion programme, with an allocation in the 2014-15 academic year of €255,947, and the Kilrush school completion programme, with an allocation of €119,978. The Ennis project involves four primary and two post-primary schools, while the Kilrush project involves one primary and one post-primary school. All school completion projects including the two in County Clare will be notified of their allocations for the 2015-2016 school year, "added Senator Mulcahy.

Childcare is too expensive for parents on lower incomes

Posted by Schooldays Newshound, on 22/06/2015.
Tags: Education And PoliticsChildcare is too expensive for parents on lower incomes

Early childhood care and education (ECCE), as well as after school care provision (ASC), are totally inadequate and too expensive for people on lower incomes, according to the Society of St Vincent de Paul (SVP).
In its pre-budget submission entitled "Investing in what matters" SVP says, "This is particularly true for one parent families currently being required by Government to take up employment or increase their working hours"

SVP is seeking an extension of the Community Childcare Subvention to all early year services, both community and private. It is also seeking an extension of the current universal Early Childhood Care and Education programme to 3 hours per day, 5 days a week, from 38 weeks to 48 weeks per year.

In calling for further investment in ECCE and ASC provision the Society says that facilitating female participation in the labour market and making a decisive impact on breaking the cycle of disadvantage are hinged on investment in ECCE and ASC policy.

It says that the current ECCE scheme has a 95% take-up rate, indicating the demand among parents. However it says the offer is limited, providing inadequate support for parents seeking employment.

SVP also says that there is much complexity in the operation of the various schemes, they need to be subsumed,reconfigured and made more user-friendly.

While SVP welcomes the reduced unemployment figures it says that Ireland is not close to its policy goal of 'making work pay' for people whose earnings potential is relatively low. “Wages and welfare supports are crucial – but so are affordable, quality services,” says SVP.

The Society believes that there is no political will to make real change in how we allocate resources that will give an equal opportunity to all our citizens.

“Government should invest in a level and type of social provision that will ensure greater participation for low income households in the economic recovery, and break the cycle of poverty and inter-generational disadvantage facing many people we assist, says SVP.

"Long term sustained investment in public services is essential if Ireland is serious about tackling inequality, reducing poverty traps, achieving positive health and well-being outcomes for people and encouraging access to work. We need to invest wisely in early childhood care and education, social housing and warmer homes. We need to invest in what matters." it says.
