Written answers (Question to Education)

While it had been my Department’s intention to run the extended school year (ESY) scheme – also known as the July Provision Scheme – this year if possible, given the current school closures and public health restrictions, my Department is now reviewing this.

My Department is considering contingency measures, including changes to the format of the scheme. Any changes will be communicated widely.
