July Provision 2020



Dear Parent/Guardian,


It is with great regret that we inform our school community that we will be unable to offer school-based July Provision this year.

This decision has not been made lightly by the Board of Management. We are unable to support the proposed provision due to a number of issues including:

  1. Provision of a safe environment for our pupils and staff.
  2. H.S.E. guidelines on returning to the workplace safely recommend the provision of appropriate hygiene facilities, proper ventilation, maintaining physical distancing of at least 2 metres, and installation of physical barriers, such as clear plastic sneeze guards.
  3. Lack of available staff.
  4. Transport guidelines issued by the H.S.E.

Both our pupil and staff health and safety are paramount to us and unfortunately,

St. Ultan’s Special School is currently not in a position to adhere to the recommended guidelines.

However, you may access information on home-based July Provision through this link:


We are all working hard in an effort to comply with Government guidelines for the planned  re-opening on Thursday 27th August 2020.

We thank you for your continued support and we look forward to seeing all our pupils in the new school year.


Kind regards,

Jean Cunningham.                                Pat McCreanor
