Update 2020/2021 Academic Year
Circular 0040/2020 acknowledges the significant efforts teachers, school leaders and boards of management have made to support pupils at home during the period of school closure in 2020.
This circular also clarifies the arrangements for school self-evaluation (SSE) for the 2020/2021 school year and notifies schools that there will be no new requirements for SSE in this period. Instead, the Department encourages schools to use SSE to plan for and address the challenges involved in the return to schools in the 2020/21 school year and/or complete SSE work that would normally have been completed in March-June 2020.
A massive effort has been made by all members of the school community to reopen our schools in September of this year. Planning started in July and involved all members of the school community. Meetings took place on a weekly basis and all the staff and members of the Duleek GNS school community really rose to the challenge.
