TThe information in the attached document provides data on COVID-19 related leave taken by teachers, Special Needs Assistants and also Clerical Officers/Caretakers employed under the 1978/1979 Scheme for the period 6th January to 31st October, 2021. The data provided does not include staff employed by ETBs as they have a separate payroll system.

A breakdown of monthly data and county data in addition to the average length of that leave, is not readily available in my Department. Prior to 6th January 2021, all COVID-19 related leave was recorded under one leave category.
