St Pa­trick’s School may lose teach­ers

Bray People - - Bray People -

ST. PA­TRICK’S Na­tional School in Bray has been named as one of the schools likely to lose teach­ers as part of Gov­ern­ment cuts, ac­cord­ing to new data com­piled by the Ir­ish Na­tional Teacher’s Or­gan­i­sa­tion (INTO).

The fig­ures, based on the num­ber of pupils en­rolled this year and tak­ing into con­sid­er­a­tion the cuts as out­lined in the Bud­get, in­di­cates that St. Pa­trick’s stands to lose two teach­ers.

The Bud­get changes in­clude an in­crease in class sizes from 27 to 28, the loss of teach­ing posts from schools no longer des­ig­nated as dis­ad­van­taged, and a new ceil­ing of a max­i­mum of two lan­guage sup­port teach­ers for most schools.
