Applications for Resources

The NCSE deadline for round 1 Appeals is 29 September 2016.

Schools have continued to submit applications for resource teaching hours for students with low incidence special educational needs, where the necessary supporting documentation was not available for the 29th February deadline.

The NCSE expects that decisions in relation to the remaining applications, including applications under the Interim Scheme for allocation of Resource Hours to schools for students with Down syndrome, received by 20 September 2016 will issue to schools in mid-October.

Schools are reminded that they must return the Student Attendance Confirmation Form to their SENO as soon as possible but no later than 29 September 2016.
