Written answers (Question to Education)

My Department allows for appointments of Principals to all new schools from 1 September of the school year prior to the opening of a new school.

The recruitment and appointment of teachers (including Principals) to fill teaching posts is a matter for the individual school authority, subject to procedures agreed under Section 24(3) of the Education Act 1998 (as amended by the Education (Amendment) Act 2012).
