Three Year Review of Care Needs and SNA Support

The NCSE is contacting schools regarding the review of SNA Allocations in accordance with the provisions of DES Circular 0030/2014.The circular provides that students accessing SNA support require Personal Pupil Plans and are subject to a review of their care needs at the end of a three year period. Those schools with students accessing SNA support for three or more years will receive a letter advising them of the process. Please contact your local SENO if you wish to discuss. A copy of the letter is available here.
