333. To ask the Minister for Education and Skills the reason a school (details supplied) has had its application for a developing post appointment for the 2021-2022 academic year refused when all qualifying criteria have been met; if she will urgently review the application; and if she will make a statement on the matter.

The key factor for determining the level of staffing resources provided at individual school level is the staffing schedule for the relevant school year and pupil enrolments on the previous 30th September.
The staffing arrangements also include a provision whereby schools experiencing rapid increases in enrolment can apply for additional permanent mainstream posts on developing grounds, using projected enrolment.
The school referred to by the Deputy has been allocated such a post on a provisional basis, pending confirmation of enrolments on 30th September 2021. The school has been informed of this decision.
