The Boards of Management of schools are responsible for the employment of school caretakers and it is a matter for each school to determine the level of caretaking services required for the school.  Funding to cater for these services is made available by my Department through the Ancillary Services and Capitation Grants.

Within the grant programme, the level and extent of services provided is a matter for the school authorities who, through the discretion afforded by the scheme, apply their own arrangements for caretaking services as resources permit.
