Written Answers. - Homework Clubs.

Frances Fitzgerald


441 Ms Fitzgerald asked the Minister for Education and Science if funding is available for the homework club in a school (details supplied) in Dublin 4. [31952/01]

My Department does not operate a national scheme for the provision of homework clubs. However, my Department operates a number of schemes aimed at tackling educational disadvantage under which resources are allocated for the provision of a range of holistic supports to enable pupils from educationally disadvantaged backgrounds to participate fully in school. These include the eight to 15 year olds early school leaver initiative and the stay in school retention initiative. The position of the school referred to will be considered in any future expansion of these schemes.
