My Department provides ancillary grant assistance to over 480 primary schools in the Free Education Scheme in Dublin towards the cost of secretarial and caretaking services. 

Within the grant programme, the level and extent of services provided is a matter for the school authorities who, through the discretion afforded by the scheme, apply their own arrangements for secretarial and caretaking services as resources permit.
