Teacher allocations for all schools are approved annually by the Department in accordance with established rules based on recognised pupil enrolment. The Department provides a staffing allocation to each ETB.

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