Information relating to the Home Based Summer Programme for 2023 is now available.
A home-based summer programme is available for children with complex special educational needs where their schools are not providing a school-based programme.
The allocation of hours is 10 per week for four weeks, where a student is eligible and their school is not participating in a school-based programme or is not in a position to offer the student a place on a school-based programme.

New to the programme this year, the Department of Education is allowing a small-group arrangement whereby individual registered teachers can deliver a programme for students in a group of up to three. Therefore, if parents wish, they may enter into an arrangement with a registered teacher to tutor their child in a small group, up to a maximum of 3 children.
For groups of 4 or larger, the Department will continue to approve Private Group Provider Arrangements between parents and private providers as it has done in previous years. Further information on this provision can be found in the Home-Based Summer Programme 2023 Terms and Conditions for Group Arrangements here.
