“The process of engagement with all the partners in education will ensure that for the first time parents will have a real say in the type of primary school they want their children to go to, whether it is denominational, multi-denominational, Gael scoil or other.

“The Minister has also recognised the importance of promoting inclusiveness in schools, particularly “Stand Alone” schools where transfer of patronage is not possible. I look forward to the initiation of the process where 44 areas identified will be surveyed, starting with 5 pilot areas in October 2012.”
