Norma Foley: I thank the Deputy for her question. As Minister for Education, the online safety of our children and young people is a priority both for myself and my Department. Within the education system, the current Social Personal and Health Education Curriculum, known as SPHE, at primary level covers the important topics of personal safety and protection, and includes online safety. This SPHE...

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh – Priority Questions: Online Safety (24 Nov 2022)

Emer Higgins: I thank the Minister for that update. We all acknowledge that we are living in a very different world now from the one we were in ten or even 15 years ago. Children nowadays have so many more pressures on them and much of that is as a result of the online developments. Online gaming and social media are now an everyday part of many teenagers, if not most teenagers, lives. While that has...

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh – Priority Questions: Online Safety (24 Nov 2022)

Norma Foley: I completely agree with the Deputy. We are living in a much-changed and very different world now and it is important that we have an agile workforce. It is also important that we have students who are well informed and capable of living safely in this world. I want to be clear that there are a number of initiatives under way, while we are talking about the redevelopment of the primary...

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh – Priority Questions: Online Safety (24 Nov 2022)

Emer Higgins: It is fantastic to see that the responsible and ethical use of technology is very much at the core of this because that is what we want young people to do, which is to behave responsibly online towards their peers and, above all else, to stay safe. I am aware that the Minister mentioned Webwise in her initial contribution and I have had many dealings with them. They are one of many...

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh – Priority Questions: Online Safety (24 Nov 2022)

Norma Foley: I appreciate the Deputy’s interest in this area and indeed her shining a light on it. It behoves us to acknowledge the world in which we live today. Significant progress has been made by the Department. There is also a recognition that more needs to be done in this space and it is for that reason there is the review of the programmes we deliver. In the interim, we have made the...

Rose Conway-Walsh: 73. To ask the Minister for Education and Skills if she will take action to ensure that ##children with Down's syndrome in County Mayo have access to a school and supports in their local schools; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [58439/22]

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh – Priority Questions: Special Educational Needs (24 Nov 2022)

Rose Conway-Walsh: The battle for the right to an education for children with special educational needs has been a very long one. The €2 billion which has been provided now is very welcome. This is why it is very difficult to accept that there are still some children who are not getting their education. I am thinking in particular of a 13-year-old boy in Mayo, about whom I have written to the Minister...

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh – Priority Questions: School Staff (24 Nov 2022)

Norma Foley: I appreciate that a body of work needs to be done in this regard. As the Deputy acknowledged, it is positive that this is now the work and consideration of the sub-committee. We must be clear that the Teachers' Conciliation Council is made up of a variety of bodies. It is not just the Department of Education. It is also made up of teachers' representatives, school management and the...

Donnchadh Ó Laoghaire: I will forward to the Minister some correspondence I received. If she is taking on board what the Teachers' Union of Ireland is saying, she might take on board what I am saying. I will also flag to her a different type of issue that arose in Britain which, at the time, was still a member of the EU. A particular teacher was working on a job-sharing basis in a recognised public school,...

Ceisteanna ar Sonraíodh Uain Dóibh – Priority Questions: School Staff (24 Nov 2022)

Norma Foley: The current process as we know it has been in operation for more than 20 years now. Over the years, a number of amendments have been made. As we said, there is now an opportunity to address very specifically some of the issue that have been raised and, indeed, the wider issues I raised earlier. The fact is that this process has been operating for more than 20 years and within that period...
