Kerry TD and Education Minister Norma Foley has confirmed that the summer provision scheme will pay particular attention to English classes for Ukrainian refugees.
Yesterday, the minister announced a summer education programme for pupils with complex special educational needs and those at greatest risk of educational disadvantage for summer 2022.
€40 million is to be invested in the scheme.
The department will soon advertise for English language tutors who will be available to post-primary students and adults who have fled Ukraine.
Norma Foley is confident that there are sufficient resources to deal with the increase in demand on the education system.
